Well organised trip to Turkey

We were not disappointed by our tailor made tour of Turkey. Cenan was very obliging, efficient and catered to our needs. We told him where we wanted to start and finish and Cenan organised a perfect itinerary. We were pressed for time and needed to be in Fethiye on a certain date. Cenan organised our trip perfectly . We were never left waiting, and were picked up/dropped off precisely to the itinerary provided. All booked accommodation was superb and first class. Meals provided (breakfast and lunches) were excellent. All tour groups were fantastic and tour guides were all knowledgeable, polite and friendly Thank you Cenan for a very memorable and enjoyable adventure. Will definitely recommend Medhills Travel.

A wonderful experience and a perfectly organised tour of Turkey and Greece!

After reading the fabulous reviews of Medhills Travel we decided to get them to customise a tour of Turkey and Greece for our small group of family and friends in September this year and we are so glad that we did. Nothing was too much trouble for Cenan and his team and the tour was perfect. I agree with the previous reviewers, all of the hotels were excellent, especially, the MDC Cave Hotel in Cappadoccia, and the small bus tours were very personal, comfortable with great drivers and guides who were friendly, fun, and very knowledgable. The balloon flight in Cappadoccia was something we will never forget. All of our transfers were to schedule with friendly, helpful drivers and they always gave us plenty of time to make it to flights. While in Istanbul we did the Circle tour with Poulat which was definitely the highlight of our trip. It is a fantastic way to see the real Istanbul and Poulat is an excellent, friendly and fun guide. We had a fabulous day and night with him. We also did the Old City tour with Ozcan. This was another great day and Ozcan is also an excellent guide. Our time in Greece went very smoothly and Santorini was amazing. Cenan contacted us while on the tour to make sure everything was going well and on the odd occasion we needed help it was wonderful to have him and his team and their local knowledge available to give us a hand. I would reccommend Medhills Travel to anyone.

Unsurpassed dedication to ensuring a great vacation

Thanks to all the positive reviews of Medhills on Trip Advisor, I decided to take a chance on them and book the Turkey and Greece combined tour. And Cenan did not disappoint. Cenan is the most efficient, most helpful and patient agent you could work with. He replied to e-mails promptly and worked with whatever changes we made to customize our trip. He even assigned a personal guide to help us shop and not get duped at the Grand Bazaar for free! And yes, the phone calls during the trip to ensure we are having a good time is a nice touch. And even after their services technically ended, Cenan was good enough to make some calls for my friends to help track down their luggage which was stuck in Istanbul for several days due to some airlines mishap. Great service. I would definitely recommend Medhills Travel. I already have, actually, to a few friends.

Excellent travel agency

Like some of the previous reviews mentioned we decided to take a chance on this agency and were not disappointed. I believe the main office for this company is in Turkey, but they also have agents in Canada which made calling them from the United States a little easier (time difference). I was a little apprehensive about using a foreign agency that I had never heard of before, but everything went very smoothly and prices were much better than what we were finding trying to plan a trip to Turkey on our own.

Our trip was 10 days and included Istanbul, Cappadocia, Pamukkale, Ephesus, and Kusadasi. All of our pickups and transfers were seamless, hotel accommodations were excellent (loved the breakfast every day), and the tour groups were small with friendly and knowledgeable guides. A previous reviewer mentioned Polat from Istanbul, and I would agree that he was one of the best guides. I would definitely recommend the hot air balloon ride in Cappadocia (much less scary than I thought it would be), but maybe skip Pamukkale for now as it seems they have turned off the water to the pools.

Agents from the company responded almost immediately to all of our emails and phone calls prior to the trip, and twice while in Turkey we received calls at our hotel room checking in to see how everything was going. Overall I found service and hospitality in this country to be high quality, and I think the experience we had with MedHills Travel is a reflection of that.

Incredible tour service

I decided to book a 10 day tour of Turkey with Medhills based on reviews. They did not let me down, phenomenal company. Every aspect of the trip was perfectly organized and on time. From private pickups from airports and hotels to amazing hotel choices with great service, we were never disappointed with the company. I kept waiting for something to go wrong and nothing did. I also liked how they would touch base with us every other day to make sure we were aware of pick up times and had no issues. Highly recommend this company. I wish they were available in every country!

The Best Way To See Turkey and Greece!

My husband and I have always been very independent travelers and when travelling to Europe we always book everything ourselves. And we do not generally care for organized tours unless we feel out of our element. But when looking to travel to Greece and Turkey the logistics became quite daunting for all the places we wanted to see. Medhills Travel was the perfect solution. We told Cenan what we wanted to do and see and he came up with a perfect itinerary for us. One of the many great things about Medhills is that you can leave any day you choose- you set your itinerary.

We spent 3 days in Santorini, 2 1/2 in Mykonos before flying to Istanbul. When we flew to Cappadocia we did do 2 days of organized trips but it turned out perfectly. Our group was small (12 people), we all genuinely liked each other and got on very well, and our tour guide (Kezban) was great. She gave us plenty of free time to explore on our own which is very important to us and didn't overwhelm the group with too much information. During our trip Vedat, our contact in Turkey, called us 3 times to make sure everything was going smoothly. What customer service! And every transport from the airports and to and from the hotels was on time, every time. You always worry a bit when you are relying on someone other than yourself to make sure you are on time to the airport or wonder if someone will be at the airport or hotel to pick you up. If this is you, do NOT hesitate to book with this company. It was the easiest,affordable, most hassle free way to see many places in two different countries. This was our 15 year anniversary trip so we had a lot invested in this being a "perfect" vacation. Thanks to Cenan and Vedat, we had just that. THANK YOU!!

Excellent Service - Reliable, Flexible & Good Value

I found Medhills based on a random google search and they are simply terrific - highly efficient and nimble. Cenan worked patiently with me on revising and refining the itinerary. The final itinerary was a 16-day Turkey and Greece tour involved 6 cities, 4 domestic flights, 1 ferry ride, a combination of free days on which we could explore the cities on our own and days with guided tours (we were pleasantly surprised that two of the tours were private tours). Cenan made all the bookings and everything went smoothly without a glitch, including all the airport transfers (we had 12 pick-up/drop-offs total!). It's wonderful to have a friendly driver waiting for you upon arrival at a chaotic airport in a foreign country - took away so much anxiety! I requested several changes during the trip and Cenan took care of all the requests right away without any complaint. All the tour guides and drivers we met were friendly and professional, and hotels are nice boutiques at great locations - It shows that they have a great network of contacts in these two countries. Highly recommended - it would've taken a lot more efforts and cost a lot more if I had to make all the arrangements on my own.

Attentive, Reliable and Flexible

First, I trust TripAdvisor reviews more than any other travel data base on-line. You can't go wrong when every person rates a travel agency (Medhills) with five stars. I found Medhills Travel while seeking a day tour of Istanbul. After exchanging e-mail messages with Cenan explaining my niece and I would be in Istanbul for two weeks but wanted to see more of Turkey, Cenan arranged a trip and tours that exceeded my expectations. We flew to Cappadocia for two days, and then to Ephesus the following week for two days. Our tour guides at both locations were knowledgeable, helpful and took good care of us. Our vacation turned into an excellent adventure, and Cenan made that happen for a very reasonable price. We received a detailed itinerary, including information about our domestic flights, airport and tour transportation and booked us in very nice hotels at both locations. Everything went smoothly and Cenan even called on our last day to make sure we happy with Medhills' service. I highly recommend this travel company for all your travel in Turkey. And I must add the Circle Istanbul day tour is the best ever tour of Istanbul possible. Please see Circle Istanbul Trip Advisor reviews and book the full day tour!

Five Stars to MedHills Travel!

This August/September MedHills organized a fabulous tour for our family of 9 adults. Cenan planned a wonderful 12 days for us in Athens, Santorini and Turkey. Our hotels were exceptional, with our favorites being the Ari in Santorini with spectacular views down to the caldera from our room side pool. The Cave Hotel in Cappadocia is a destination in itself with its lovely rooms, some of which are carved into the rocks. The van transportation and personnel were excellent as well as the city guides, in particular, "Oz" in Istanbul and Aaron in Ephesus. Cenan had arranged air service with meals and baggage included. We had a safe, educational, unforgettable and worry free family vacation thanks to Cenan and his staff. MedHills is most highly rated by our family.

A Great Trip!

Cenan at Medhills Travel did a great job in fashioning an itinerary for us to spend 21 days in Greece and Turkey. The boutique hotels he chose (with one exception) and the tours (not too many) were exceptional. Quite by chance I stumbled upon his ad in the NYTImes and all four of us were so happy for this. All our internal air transportation, airport pick ups and deliveries, single day tours, hotels with breakfasts were taken care of. We had enough free time (about half our days) so that we could explore both countries on our own, often based on tips from friends who had traveled to the areas in recent years. There was not one glitch in our plans (other than once paying for two rooms when we only needed one) and we took great comfort in knowing that we would be able to easily go from one place to the next -- each more special than the previous! I would highly recommend Cenan and Medhills for any travel to Greece and/or Turkey. He knows the intricacies of getting around these two countries and will save you a lot of time and money.

Definitely use Medhills Travel for Turkey or Greece

We found Cenan on Trip Advisor like most everyone. The reviews were all very positive. So i called him with a desire to see Greece and Turkey in 2 weeks with my family of 5. 2 adults and 3 teenagers. Not only did he get back right away with recommendations he continued to work on finding hotel ideas that I kept peppering him about as we needed 2 rooms which is not always easy to find in the summer. All of the hotels on the islands of Greece were fantastic.

The star was the MDC Hotel in Cappadoccia-a top 7 boutique hotel in all of Europe. Pricing was very attractive and all tours, flights, guides, vans, ballons worked out perfectly. And Cenan does check in on you several times during the trip. It does seem like Cenan has more pull in Turkey with his connections there-but Greece was all well done too. If you want to be on the move and see alot like we did, i would definitley call Medhills. Doug-Colorado

Perfect Holiday!

I don't usually use a guided tour but this is an exception because I have never been to Turkey and I wanted to see as much as possible in 8 days. So I left the entire planning to Medhills Travel. Except for 1 minor airport pick-up delay, everything else was on-time from the moment of arrival in Istanbul to departure. The guided day tours were nice and gave us the flexibility to be on our own at the end of the day. Because of the short trip, they arranged flights instead of traveling by bus which was great. They even selected the seats toward the front of the plane and pre-pay for the food for us. The entire trip felt comfortable because we knew that everything was taken care of.

The price was higher than expected but the trip went so well that I felt it was worth it. I would use Medhills Travel again and would recommend to my friends.

Highly recommend MedHills Travel

MedHills arranged our travel, accomdations and tours in Turkey and Greece. Everything exceeded our expectations. We really did nothing and just trusted them to take good care of us! Pick up and transportation all went very smoothly - it was an awesome experience to see my name being held up at the Airports! All 4 hotels we stayed in were incredible- great location, great staff (language was never a concern), 2 were actually suites which was a very pleasant surprise!

The tours they arranged were the best to be had with the best guides - small groups of 6 to 8. The balloon ride in Cappadocia was with one of the most respected pilots and only held 8 plus pilot instead of some of the very large ones where you struggled for the best spot. They really knew the area, the tours and the guides which was a big plus. They called us a number of times to ensure everything was going well - I joked they timed one of the calls when they knew we would be in awe with the up graded suite overlooking the sea and the wine waiting in our room! I cannot think of a single thing they could have done differently to make our trip more enjoyable!

Great Travel Agency

I just got back from a 2 week vacation in Turkey and chose MedHills Travel Agency to organize my trip. There is a reason this agency has great reviews on TripAdvisor. From Start to finish it was seamless. All our transfers from airport/hotels were on time, the hotels picked were great. MDC Hotel in Cappadocia was our favorite and is a must if going there. The tour guides had a lot of energy and passion and full of knowledge which is important with all the history in Turkey. Also, add Istanbul circle tour. It is a must to see parts of Istanbul you would not see normally.

Medhills Travel - Highly Recommended!

We are back home from our beautiful trip to Turkey and France. We arrived one week ago and just had time to recover from all those emotions...
We want to tell you that we had a very interesting trip and very well organized.  Turkish people are very nice and friendly and we never felt insecure there.We are very happy with the hotels you send us to (particularly MDC and Palace Hotel(WOW). KUsadaki hotel was very well located ,the room being very small. But the very nice view we had over the sea  made us forget that.The transportation was always on time and we had good drivers and interesting guides. I have already talked about  you to a lot of people because Turkey is a popular destination for Québec people (Do you have anybody speaking french with you?)

The day of Circle Istanbul was very much appreciated. Polat is a very nice man ,giving a lot of information, answering questions, so that day ,we walked a lot and saw a lot. The day started at 9 until 11h30 at night...we were a bit(!) tired ,but the Turkish bath and the meal at Taskim helped us a lot to rest.

We loved Cappadoccia , Ephesus  and Pergamum.  Pammukale  was a bit far (rainy day).But it worth to see those natural blue pools.

Finally ,our trip was very well organized. We won`t hesitate to recommend your company and maybe travel again with you. We want to go back to Greece continental.

We also appreciated your calls during the trip ,making sure everything was O.K.

Thank you very much for your patience (organization) and your kindness.

First Rate Company!

So glad we decided to choose a private tour of Turkey with Medhills. The fact that every detail was looked after (from pickups, tours, hotels, etc.) made us realize we'd made the best choice. Cenan, thank you for all the arrangements. Our tour guides and drivers were exceptional....we would just like to mention a few that come to mind; We had such fun with Polat, when we toured Istanbul; Our driver Ali that made sure we arrived at our destinations safely; Kubra in Cappadocia (a must see destination) and lastly Deniz, our driver/guide... (Mt Nemrut at sunrise....what an experience!) Two hotels that immediately come to mind are: Hotel Barbarossa in Kas and the MDC hotel in Urgup. The staff at this Hotel all go out of their way to make sure your stay here is stress free!

Definitely I would recommend Medhills Travel to anyone contemplating a visit to Turkey, where we found the Turkish people friendly, honest and at no time did we not feel safe.

Great Service - Highly Recommend Them

My friend and I contact Medhills in September of this year to coordinate our October trip. It was a bit last minute, but Cenan was extremely responsive to our inquires (many, many inquiries, questions, concerns). Medhills arranged all of our travel, transfers, accommodations, and tours within Turkey. The only thing we had to take care of was our flights to and from Istanbul. We stayed in Goreme (Cappadocia region), Kusdasi (visiting Ephesus and Pammukale), and Istanbul. Cenan gave us good hotel options and arranged for good tour companies to pick us up and take us out. The tour groups were maxed out with 12 people in the group so we were a small and nimble group. We were lucky that we had great tour mates.

We had an issue with our itinerary when our arriving flight was cancelled and we had to fly in earlier. Vedat of Medhills was able to change our flight to Kayseri (Cappadocia) quickly so we could enjoy more of our day. In fact, Vedat called our tour drive when we were in Kusadasi to make sure my friend and I were doing well and enjoying our trip.

I would highly recommend using Medhills to arrange one's travel in Turkey (some of our tour mates also used them for their continued travels to Greece). They will respond quickly and prepare an itinerary based on what you want to do and the vacation time you have. The price was reasonable in our opinion, and, more importantly, they saved us a great deal of time and stress.

Happy and safe travels, y'all!

Excellent local guides in Turkey.

Cenan at MedHills arranged two tours for us in Turkey, and they both were great. I reviewed Circle Istanbul under it's own heading, a great one day unconventional tour of Istanbul, showing us life as the locals live it, tasting food all over the city on both sides of the Bosphorous and Golden Horn, even a Turkish Bath. It's an exceptional tour with all food and admittance included. Cenan also arranged a custom guided tour for us for two days in Cappadocia. The guide, Husnu BAS and the driver Turan were very friendly and professional. The guide spoke good English and knew all about the history and culture of all the amazing places we visited. They picked us up at the airport early on day 1 and dropped us off there at the end of day 2, so we felt cared for from beginning to end.

Cenan answered all our questions during the planning stage and found us a good price on a luxury cave hotel in Ugurp. He did an outstanding job.

Fantastic Trip!

Thanks to Cenan at Medhills Travel our trip to Istanbul, Epheseus and Marmaris was perfect. An air-conditioned car met us at the airport and took us to our hotel. We were not happy with our first hotel, no fault of Cenan`s. We were not explicit enough in what we like in a hotel or the neighborhood. I emailed Cenan, and within one hour we were in a hotel that we loved, (The House Hotel, see separate review). I cannot speak highly enough of how Cenan jumped in to make sure we were happy with our hotel and our entire trip. Cenan also arranged for our private tour of the most famous Istanbul landmarks with Polat.
 
Polat was great. He speaks fluent English, he`s funny and he kept the day moving. We spent our first full day touring the Haggia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and other spots with Polat, who is highly knowledgable about Turkish history. Cenan had recommended the Circle Istanbul tour, also headed by Polat, for day two of our touring, and we loved it (see separate review). We traveled from Istanbul on a cruise ship, and Cenan arranged for our private tours and drivers in Ephesus and at Marmaris. This was so much better than taking the cruise arranged bus tours, and was less money.
 
We had Cenan arrange all our transports in Turkey and we were never disappointed. All the drivers were on time in luxury vehicles. We will use Medhills when we return to Turkey -- and we will return to Turkey because Cenan arranged the best tours which made us fall in love with the country.
 
Great value for the money. Very professional and FUN.

Excellent Travel Agency!

If only there had been a Medhills in every country we have visited or plan to visit! Cenan put together for us a 12 day trip that encompassed Istanbul, Cappadoccia, Ephesus and Bodrum, offering us a wide ranging introduction to Eastern and Central Turkey. Door to door service between the various sites was seamless, saving us a lot of worry about how to and what time and allowing us to maximize sightseeing. Hotels were all selected for comfort, charm and location. Everyone we met or talked to at Medhills was friendly, helpful and bent on making our trip as pleasant and interesting as possible. Best of all, the places showcased by our Medhills itinerary were fabulous. I cannot recemmend Medhills highly enough. It’s the only way to do a first (or subsequent?) trip to Turkey.

MedHills Travel

We recently booked a tour of Turkey thru Cenan, at Medhills Travel. All we knew about the company were reviews we read on line. We gave him our dates, the things we knew we wanted to do, and asked him to fill in the blanks. What an amazing trip! Everything was so well organized. All we had to do was show up, at the airport, or in the hotel lobby, and we would be whisked away on another day of incredible adventure.

All our transfers, tours, flights within Turkey, and hotels were booked by Cenan. We had never done a land tour before, although we have traveled extensively, and this tour spoiled us. I can't imagine doing a 'regular' land tour, on a bus for 2 weeks with 50 other people. The largest group we toured with was 15. One day it was a driver, a guide, and the two of us. Amazing. All the local tours we were with were excellent. Small groups, and knowledgeable guides. The choices made by Cenan gave us a excellent overview of Turkey. As mentioned by others, Cenan called us during the tour to make sure everything was okay. Ozcan and Polat, our guides in Istanbul were delightful young men, who proudly showed us their city. Price wise, we thought this tour was very comparable to other companies, but our tour was customized to what we wanted to do. It was nice to have most things prepaid, without having to pull out money for every expense along the way. Our only cost thru the two weeks was dinner. Would I recommend this company? In a heartbeat.

Thank you Cenan, for a wonderful adventure. This company also does tours in other countries. I hope they expand, so I can travel with them again

“Wonderful Guide, Interesting Tour, Great Company to Work With”

I arranged a walking tour of the main sights in the Old City with Medhills Travel for 7 people at the end of October. I dealt with Cenan during the booking process. He was very helpful and returned both phone calls and emails very promptly.

Mine Gezen was our tour guide and, after spending the day with her, we couldn't have been happier. She arrived early at our meeting site across from the Hippodrome and she promptly shared her plan for us to see the sights we had requested (The Hippodrome, the Hagia Sofia, the Basilica Cistern, the Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, and the Grand Bazaar).

She was a very warm person and very knowledgeable about the history of Istanbul and of each of the sights we visited. For lunch, she took us to a restaurant in a quiet part of Gulhane Park next to Topkapi Place, which we all enjoyed.

I would highly recommend Medhills Travel for a tour of the Old City and suggest you request Mine as your guide.

We hit the jackpot with Cenan

For independent travelers who viewed a comprehensive trip to Turkey and Greece as one needing a "helper" Cenan at Medhills was fantastic!

We are travel research junkies who learned about Medhills from its stellar reviews on Tripadvisor. I called Cenan and had the most enjoyable and worthwhile time comparing notes, getting oodles of suggestions and jointly sketching out the outlines of a three week trip. Cenan is a great listener and idea generator who seems to move into action as soon as he gets off the phone. A comprehensive itinerary arriving via e-mail in a day or so. It was pretty much spot on. We made some "tweaks" here and there and we're thrilled with the results.

We stayed in 9 hotels, took 5 flights within Turkey/Greece, one ferry ride, were picked up or dropped off at airports, hotels etc 15 times, had semi-private tours in 7 locations and took a fabulous hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia...and Everything went off without a hitch! Amazing.

Periodically Cenan would call just to be sure everything was going well. Not necessary but much appreciated.

Cenan provides good alternatives and lots of flexibility in where you stay and what you do. Obviously a three week trip is fairly expensive but we thought it was a good value. Our trip included three night stays on Santorini and on Mykonos. Cenan said that these two islands were the best places if we wanted to "splurge" on lodging. We did, and he booked us in the Aria Suites on Santorini and Mykonos Grand Hotel. Both were fantastic!

We loved our trip and will definitely team up with Cenan on our next visit.
