• “I’ve toured with Cemil Konuralp twice. My first trip was as part of a small group in 1997: a twelve day gulet cruise with a land extension to Cappadocia. When a professional meeting I needed to attend was scheduled in Antalya in the fall of 2010, I decided to spend some extra time in Turkey. For my second trip, Cemil put together a ten day private tour to Eastern Turkey. This was hands-down the best trip of my life. I’ve done a number of guided vacations, and Cemil has been the best of the guides. He’s experienced, knowledgeable, flexible, considerate, and attuned. He has a great sense of humor and teaches without being pedantic or boring. Most important, he truly loves Turkey. He’s been everywhere, but it’s obvious that he gets pleasure in showing his country and seeing things himself, whether he’s been there before or is checking them out for the first time.”

  • “We loved the whole trip; one of the most rewarding we have ever taken. Everything ran as planned and exceeded expectations. The mostly boutique hotels were terrific and the food was wonderful. Our guide, Cemil Konuralp, was exceptional. He was personable, energetic, helpful, sensitive to special needs, and competent. Somehow we always managed to be in the right place at the right time – and before the crowds. Due to Cemil’s knowledge visiting the archaeological sites was a journey through history. Thank you for an unforgettable experience.”
