Dear Hulya Just a short note to thank you for the arrangement of our recent tour to Troy and Gallipoli. Both Ercan and Bluent were helpful and good company. Bulent was a wonderful guide and made the trip enjoyable and informative. Regards Marc McGowan
Dear Ms.Hulya, I want to thank you so much for everything you did to make my October 23, 2007 trip to Turkey so great. I was amazed how well you had my tours worked smoothly from one tour to the next. I found you and your boss so very helpful no matter what I needed. I have given your name to lots of people I have met along the way, explaining you will help them in whatever tour they need or car rental etc. Thanks again! In Friendship' Rose Sharpe
Dear Ms. Hulya, I just wanted to thank you for your coordination of my husband's and my stay in Istanbul. We enjoyed your city and were very satisfied with your services. If we come to Istanbul again, we will surely use Jasmine tours. Best regards, Simona Velasco
Dear Hulya, We have finished the tour through Turkey and back to China. Just wanna thank you for all your help and effort that made possible this great journey, we are deeply impressed by the beautiful nature, nice food and friendly people of your country, fantastic and lovely memory!! Thank you very much!! With our best regards, Rao Shan & Song Jing
Merhaba Hulya, I have finally found the time to thank you for providing the subject tour, my apologies for the delay. Our pick-up service from the hotel was punctual, as was the departure from Istanbul. The air-conditioned bus to Gallipoli was clean and comfortable and the rest stops well timed. The 5 hour Gallipoli tour and the service provided by the knowledgeable and passionate guide was outstanding. Our 3 star accommodation was clean, the inclusive hotel meals were very good and the Helen Hotel staff at the wonderful little city of Canakkale were organized and helpful. The tour of Troy was impeccably organized as were our return arrangements to Istanbul. Despite two hours delay returning to Istanbul due to a minor bus breakdown, our pick-up service was waiting at the bus depot to return us to our hotel. The five of us have frequently praised the organization of the tour. We would have no hesitation in recommending Jasminne Tours to anyone seeking a cost effective, efficient tour company to facilitate, (for Aussies) a once in a life-time pilgrimage to Gallipoli. Many, many thanks (Teşekkür ederim). Scott Franklin Tony Larcombe Brent Knightingale Cristine Knightingale Graham Binder Brisbane, Australia.
Dear Hulya Thank you very much for organising our recent 15 day tour of Turkiye. As a first time visitor to Turkiye this proved to be a most enjoyable and interesting experience. We found the people very friendly, and the service and standard of the hotels that we stopped in of very good quality. The various tour guides were both knowledgeable and interesting, and also very helpful. We shall definitely be making a return visit, and also recommending your services to our friends in England.   Thanks again   Best wishes   John White   Derby - England / United Kingdom
Thank you for your service regretfully wenhave accepted another tour with some flexibilty to allow us to more time to see Gallipoli and less at Troy. However, we intend to holiday again in Turkey in 2008 for a much longer period and are interested in your tours to Pergamon and other parts which seem well planned.We shall contact in about 12 months time. MAX PRESS Sydney AUSTRALIA
Ms Hulya Ercan I just wanted to thank you for arranging my Jewish Heritage tour and Sultana's outing in Istanbul. Everything was really wonderful. Bulent, my private tour guide, for the Jewish tour made me feel very safe and really knew his way around. It was such a nice add to my visit to Turkey because I got to explore things a little more "the norm" than the tourist way which was really nice since I was by myself. Thanks for accomodating me. My friend and I also enjoyed Sultana's -- it was on the touristy side but still very fun... I would not hesitate to contact you again if I come back to Turkey which I'd like to do someday. thanks Sincerely, Amy M. Bladen
HOLA!!!!  we are now in Egypt, l want to thanks for all the care you had for us, your country is to much better that l imagined. l ll have really allways good memories about all the places. l going to recomend your services with my friends. Please take care and Thanks Ivette Azamar
Dear Hulya, I had come to Istanbul and taken the tour booked thru you. The Plan Tour people were really good, and the tour really enjoyable. It is a pity that I could not visit your office and meet you. I need to come again to Istanbul and see some more places and shall definitely call on you and also book thru you. Thanks for the tour. Best Wishes D K Ojha

Dear Hulya – I just wanted to write to tell you that my wife and I were very pleased with the tour guide services provide to us by Honifi on 18-19 May for our personalized tours of Istanbul.  I’ve also informed our travel agent in Los Angeles (Cassis Travel) that we were very pleased and have given her your contact information. Thanks again, Gary Noyes
Words can’t fully describe how pleased we were with Jasminne Tours.  Erdal and Ebru arranged four tours for us that made our trip to Turkey relaxing and enjoyable.  Our full day private tour to Ephesus exceeded our expectations.  They provided pleasant, personal and professional service and quickly accommodated our travel and sightseeing needs.  We appreciated their personal approach in making our travel arrangements. Catherine and Adrian Ottawa, Canada September 2005
Erdal I did not get a chance to meet you before I left, but I would like to say thank you for a very interesting and most importantly well planned trip. Both me and my wife was extremely happy in the way that the arrangements were made, and everything went off without any problem and at no point did we feel as if the planning was poor. But this minor complaint aside, thank you for everything, I will definitely recommend your agency to my friends. Regards Ebrahim and Hafsa Parker
Dear Erdal and Ramos and Arjan, My mom and I wish to thank you all for the courtesy  during my tour in Istanbul. Istanbul is wonderful, one of the most beautiful town I ever seen during my travels,  and I had the opportunity with you professional and friendly assistance to make a real tour, touching also the real life and hospitality of Turkish people. A special tanks to Ramos and Arjan who made the impossible to let us feel comfortable and to make our staying as we wished and dream about, and making  feel us as part of their family. I hope to see you again in my next visit in Istanbul. Thank you again for you marvellous service and treatment. Stefania and Donatella Silvestri Roma - Italy
Erdal, I am writing to thank you for a fantastic tour of the Gallipoli Peninsular on ANZAC Day 2005. As you now I am ex Australian Army and ANZAC Day and Gallipoli are  special for me.  I am now serving as a major in the British Army, but I still have a great fondness for Gallipoli.  It is for this reason I am very grateful to you for your efforts in before and during the tour. My friend and I were last minute inclusions on the Tour and you had to go to great lengths to ensure we made it, and you did.  You understood our desire to commemorate the occasion appropriately and in comfort and you realised our requirements through sheer hard work.  You were the perfect host and Phil and I are most grateful. The DVD that I will send soon should go a long way to demonstrating how fantastic your tour is.  I know that you are striving to make your tour something special and not just the run of the mill.  You are prepared to make sacrifice and work hard to achieve a quality, value for money tour for all ages. Once again thank you and your staff. Shane Armstrong Major BEng (Hons), MSc HQ 1st (UK) Armoured Division
Hi Ebru... We made it back home right on schedule...all went without a hitch throughout our entire visit to your wonderful country. We again thank YOU for all that you did to organize a super visit for us...we have been telling all of our friends what you have done to make our visit to Turkey one of the best trips ever that we have made. I am already missing Turkey and longing to return soon.  Hopefully, we will find time in the near future to make a visit again...this time to the Black Sea region and out to the East of Turkey. Many many thanks again for all you did for us to make our visit something very special. Cheers....DONALD
Teşekkür ederim, Ms Ebru I am now back in Columbus Ohio and my trip to Turkey was very pleasant and memorable.  I appreciate your good work on my behalf. Best wishes to you and the company ayres
Dear Erdal, Just a short note to thank you very very much for all the help and attention you provided us. We had a WONDERFUL trip to Cappadocia & want to thank you for organising everything perfectly and especially for the Hotel upgrade at Kelebek. The local Istanbul excursions were also of a very high standard and you gave us the best deal in terms of price. I will gladly provide a reference for any potential customers if they ask you for one. Thank you very very much. Regards Arti
Dear Ebru Now we are back home after our holiday in Turkey, we would just like to thank you for organising our daytrip to Ephesus.  All the travel arrangements worked perfectly and on time, and the actual tour was excellent. The tour guide - Mehmet Ozgur Dalkilic - was very knowledgable and informative, but also interesting and fun.  We really enjoyed the whole day and found it extremely educational.  We Would definately recommend this  trip to anyone visiting Turkey - it is well worth it. Thank you once again for your proffesional service, we look forward to  visiting again in the future. Richard
Assalamualaikum Brother Erdal, My family had just visited the wonderful land of Turkey between 6/7/2005 to 15/7/2005. Thank you for all the arrangements done during our exciting stay in Turkey. We had a good time in Turkey and are safely back now in Singapore. It was great chatting with you and wish that we could continue, unfortunately we have to leave. InsyaAllah, we will contact you for our future visits. I was surprised to read the news on bomb blast at Kusadasi beach and Cesme. We hope everything is under control. Please send our regards to the management & staff of Atlantis Hotel for being accomodating and your brother Erjal too. Wish you all the best. Warm regrads. Hashim Soo Singapore
Dear Erdal, i am so sorry for not having written for so long. After my trip to your beautiful country, i had a good time in Germany and France. On my return to India, i had to start work immediately and so got very little time to thank you for all your trouble and help. My stay in Turkey was really memorable  and i hope to visit once again and see other parts of this fasinating  country. I thank you once more for a wonderful time in Turkey. Best regards Jan Waldraff
Dear Erdal, Thank you for giving us your best service and please take good care of our cousins, Hashim and Maria. Attached is foto of our roof-top dinner. Regards, Misrudin Anwar
Dear Erdal, We just wanted to thank you for a wonderful holiday and the good care you took of us. It truly was one if not the best holidays ever. It was a privilege to visit your wonderful country and touching to receive the warmth & hospitality of your people. Best wishes to you in the future! Jaymala & Anu Diddee PS: could you pass on our thanks to the gentleman at the atlantis hotel as well. ( Shemon, I think his name is. Thanks)
Mr. Erdal, Thank you for your help arranging our itinerary in Turkey-Ephesus~Priene Tours. Sorry though for being at the wrong airport waiting four ride.  Glad I brouhgt my cell phone. We did not miss our tour of Ephesus.  We were there to meet the tour on time. We enjoyed our short weekend because of you arranging everything. I will surely call you again for a tour when I get to come back to Turkey. Thank you. Best regards, Tita
Dear Erdal, I write to thank you once again for all your help and for the tour, which was really great. I am hoping that we can stay in touch now, because of course I want to come back. You guys are all so kind and I am now full of this experience. I would really like to add my assistance to you - to help you build up you business - in as many ways as possible. Your English is very, very good and it is plain you have excellent English speakers to help you with your various information brochures, but you never know, I might be able to help further. I have worked for a number of years on an annual contract for an author, as his copy editor, so I have experience in making things read simply and in an intersting and entertaining way. Also, we spoke of packaging this tour as 'THE Authentic Anzac Tour' and I have ideas about this, if you are interested. Perhaps we could all work together with Shane (Army Boy)? Please let me know if you are interested in anything I might have to say about the tour and anything else.  You can always get other clients, British or Australian, to contact me as a kind or reference! Sincerely, Viv Foster (You were shocked, were you not, when you saw this 'old lady'? It certainly showed on your face - you silly boy!!)

Hey!! I finally made it back to Taiwan. I want to thank you so much for organizing the trip throughout Turkey for my friend and I. Everything was really good. for us. I really want to than you for the wonderful meal that you took us out for. It was quite delicious. Erdal are a gentleman and I thank you for your kindness.
Dear Erdal, Thanks for the wonderful tour, We really enjoyed your company in Istanbul. We are in Tehran now. I will email you some pictures when I get back to the US. Take care. Mehdi Emamian
Hi Erdal We are now safely back in Singapore. We must apologise for this late email because for the few days upon arriving back here, we were pretty much suffering from a bad case of jet lag & Turkiye-withdrawal-symptoms. Anyway, both Lina & I would like to thank you very much for your superb tour program you had arranged for us. We enjoyed our tour of Turkiye very much. Our favourite is Cappadocia: Never before have we seen such a sight before. It was simply amazing. We had lots of pictures taken. Lina is now in the process of sorting & arranging them nicely into an album. Really, thanks to you, our entire trip was without any problems at all. We were picked up, dropped off, ferried along for day tours & being lodged in hotels etc... all with precise timing & not a single hassle at all. But of course, if we were to count for the fact that we forgot to apply for a Turkiye Visa, then ok, only 1 problem... Also, we like to thank you much for your hospitality while we were there. Absolutely, for sure, if anyone ever ask us about how to do a tour in Turkiye, we would just write this on a paper & give it to them: Once again, thank you for making our holidays such an enjoyable one. Sincerely Kian (of Malaysia) + Lina (of Indonesia) Singapore 19-Dec-2004
Dear Mr Pirol, We arrived home safely and I wanted to write and tell you again how much we enjoyed the trip and what a wonderful job you did in arranging everything. As I said, if you need a North American reference please feel free to have someone write to me. I think next November we will go to Greece so if you know someone to arrange the same sort of tour I would be grateful. Then my daughter will be old enough and I'm going to bring her to Turkey and hopefully go to see the eastern half of Turkey this time. Thanks again. We really enjoyed the trip and loved Turkey. Susan Slattery
Dear Mr.Erdal, Thanks for all the arrangements done during my Turkey Tour. We have had a good time in Turkey. We are safely back now in Dubai. Best Regards Mohan.R
Assalamualaikum, my friends in Istanbul. How are you Erdal & Hasan ? I apologize for not getting in touch sooner upon returnng from that wonderful trip I had in your beautiful country. I still think of Turkey quite a bit, all fond memories. This is especially true as I remember the warm and generous hospitality of its people as exemplified by the the good people of Jasminne Tour - that means the 2 of you! Thank you for your part in making that holiday a most enjoyable and memorable one. My friend Mubarak and I sends you our warmest regards and greetings for this momentous days of Idilfitri. Pls also extend my regards to Mehmet and the people from Atlantis Hotel. (Attached is the photo that we took together in your office). Take care friends, may we have the good fortune of each other's company if I do visit your country again, Insyallah Once again, thank you for everything. Regards, Faiz.
Just a note to say I really enjoyed my Bosphorus Trip on Monday, Sept. 20.  All aspects of the day were excellent and good value for the cost.  Thanks - Roger Rawlings, Puerto Rico
It has been a long time!  Just wanted you to know that I am sending you and Hassan a picture album today of St. Louis and some of the places we visited this summer.  Back in July I had promised to do that, it just took me a long time.  I hope that you are doing well.  I am, as always, trying to send business your way!  Matthew and I are doing great. Your Friend, Megan
Hello!! Erdal !!! Just wanted to thank you for your special care with all the traveling arrangements. I appreciate your cheerfulness and patience with all of the questions I asked you in preparation for this trip. I had a wonderful time in your beautiful country. Every day there was new scenery and excitement to enjoy. Thanks again for making my trip especially memorable. I'll certainly recommend your company's services to my friends if they're traveling to Turkey. Besides, I will post a message on the forum on the travel information page to recommend your company as I promised you earlier. Again, thanks very much for your professional and customized services. ^_^ Best regards, Linda
MS.KIYOKO DATE  / JAPAN Finally, I arrived in Istanbul. My ex-roommate,Young-A introduced me to her friend, called Yasemin who's living there. She & her boss Erdal came to the airport to pick me up. I was super lucky!!! (For an additional information, they are running a travel agency there. If somebody go there, visit them! I swear they are soooooo nice.^^) Thanks to them, I absolutely enjoyed my trip. Thank Yasemin & Eldal, again. ようやくイスタンブールに到着。モントリオールにいた時のルームメートが友達(コリアン)のジャスミンを紹介してくれて、空港まで彼女とそのボス エルダルが迎えに来てくれた。 2人はイスタンブールでジャスミン・ツアーという旅行代理店を経営している。かなり親切でアットホーム、絶対人をだますような人間ではないので、もしトルコに旅行に行く人がいたら訪ねてください。 2人ともこの旅の最後までものすごく良くしてくれて、彼らのおかげで貧乏旅行だったはずがなんと私はほとんど四つ星ホテルに泊まったのです。おまけに、イスタンブールにいる間はジャスミン宅に滞在。
Dear, Erdal: I have arrived back in Toronto safe and sound - and wanted to drop you a line to thank you for all of your assistance in preparing for my tour and meeting me at the airport. Cappadocia is incredibly beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there - and, everything went very smoothly. I enjoyed chatting with you and regret that I was never able to stop by your travel agency - but they kept us extremely busy with the Summit - before, during and after.  I hope to return again to your country one day - and perhaps explore the East - maybe by then, you will have your tour over there set up. Many thanks again for all of your assistance. I wish you all of the best. Sincerely, Huma
Dear Erdal and Hasan; Just thought I'd drop you a quick note to say thank you so much for everything. I've had an incredible time out here and this has defintely been a holiday to remember! You took care of me at every step and the whole trip was brilliantly organised: I got to see a heaps and throughout the hotels and tours were fantastic. I only regret I couldn't carry on going. But I am definitely coming back to Turkey again (later this year or next) and when I do, I will be definitely be giving you a call to arrange it! BTW: In the meantime, I am definitely sending your details to two friends of mine who are thinking of doing the same thing either this year or next, so you might get an email from at least one of them shortly. All the best! Mark Tuban
Message : Greetings Erdal and Hassan. It's now 5 weeks since we left Turkey and 4 weeks since we arrived home back in Melbourne. Jenny and I would like to thank you both very sincerely for the wonderful trip to Gallipoli for ANZAC DAY. The service, hospitality and friendship you both showed to us will not be forgotten. Please feel free to use us a reference for your business and if we can assist in any way from Melbourne please ask. We will definately return to Turkey in the coming years and look forward to meeting again. Kind regards Rod and Jenny Loughland

So, i sat and waited for a LONG Time at the airport. Gosh! That was boring! When u called, i was RUNNING, literally. Cos i cannot find the check-in counter. For a moment, i thought they have closed the gates! I panicked. Ha Ha... thought it was funny. So, i cut u short on the phone. Apologies. H/w, i want to let you know i appreciate your call. Again, i enjoyed your arrangement very much. My only regret was not able  to go the Greek Islands. I didn't know you cld get to Greek Islands from  Kusadasi. Thank you once again. I also remember u still owe me one dinner... at a local place... what's the name?? Doy Doy? Best regards, Ms. Ting, Lee Hoon

Istanbul Information
Istanbul is the only city in the world that spans over two continents. Europe and Asia. The city embodies mystery, intrigue, and glamour which left most other cities long ago. While the museums, palaces, great mosques, and bazaars seem inexhaustible, there’s also an unexpected natural beauty. From the shores of the Bosphorus at sunset, the red evening light reflects in the windows on the opposite shore and you understand what attracts people to this glorious city.

Shopping in Istanbul is most likely the least expensive in entire Europe, food is varied and exquisite combining unique tastes of European, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines -thanks to the Ottoman Empire once spanned from eastern Europe to Northern Africa and desserts of Arabia-, and the seven million who live here mingle with a wide variety of humanity walking its streets.

Istanbul is the largest city in the Republic of Turkey. It is located on the shores of the Bosphorus, and is bordered to the north by the Black Sea, to the east by the region of Kocaeli and the Marmara Sea and to the west by Tekirdag and the Kirklareli region. The city covers a total area of 5712 km² including, within the urban district, the islands of the Marmara known as the Princes Islands. It is flanked by a range of high hills to the east of the Bosphorus, the highest of which is Aydos (537m.) near Kartal. Camlica hill (229 m.) east of Uskudar, is a recognized tourist spot. Forests surround the city sporadically, the most extensive being the Belgrad Forest which is 20 square kms, to the north of the city.

Istanbul winters are warm and wet, summers hot and dry. The climate is tempered by warm Mediterranean winds which counter frequent Black Sea cold fronts. Temperatures vary moderately between day and night, and from season to season. The summer season is approximately 90 days long, while winter is 80 days long. Snow fails for an average of 7 days in a year.

The largest river in the region is the Riva, which flows into the Black Sea. In addition there are two rivers flowing into the Bosphorus. Istinye river and Buyuk river. The region also boasts three small but notable lakes, all on the European shores of the Bosphorus. These are the fresh-water Terkos, which supplies the city with much of its water, and the inland seas of Kucukcekmece and Buyukcekmece on the Marmara coast, which are salt water lagoons. Fish are found in both these lakes.

The city, whose population is about 12 million, is a major port and trade center. It is the most important city in Turkey, possessing a number of universities, high schools, libraries and cultural centers. The city is an impressive sight, situated, as it is, on a site dominating both the Golden Horn and the Bosphorus, and brimming with fine monuments and artifacts of the Byzantine and Ottoman era.

Up to the Turkish conquest of Istanbul by Mehmet II in 1453, the city was the center of the Byzantine Empire. After that date it became the center of the Ottoman Empire. After the founding of the Turkish Republic in 1923, the capital of Turkey became Ankara
