" This custom tour exceeded our expectations in almost every way."
When we first contacted adelphiatours.com, the only thing we knew for sure was that we wanted to visit places in Turkey where our grandparents had lived and worked as missionaries more than 50 years ago.
We requested a tour that would include important Biblical sites as well as five locations where the American missionaries had established clinics and/or schools.
How fortunate we were that Mehmet promptly answered our requests and offered a moderately priced tour which covered our requirements in our limited timeframe. In September 2006, seven family members spent 18 days traveling 4500 kilometers inside Turkey with a guide and driver arranged completely through adelphiatours.com. This custom tour exceeded our expectations in almost every way.
Bulent, our guide, interpreter, and teacher for eighteen days, was extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, and fun. He made sure that we experienced a wide range of Turkish traditions and foods. He helped us choose good quality, meaningful gifts to bring home, and he taught us not only about the Muslim religion, but about our own Christian heritage as well.
Best of all, though, was the effort and time Bulent spent helping us find the places where our ancestors had lived and worked.
Our trip was a grand experience due to the expert planning by Mehmet and the excellent teaching and guiding by Bulent.
