  • "Alkans Eastern Turkey Tour is the best! We have fallen in love the moment we set foot in Turkey. What more with our guide Mr. Sabahattin made our journey in Eastern Turkey more meaningful. He was so awesome and really the subject matter expert in the Eastern Turkey. The whole journey was incredible. We will definitely visit Turkey again and will surely use Alkans Tours service again. Loved it!

  • "We just returned from a guided visit to Mesopotamia with Sabahattin (Saba). This was a truly unique experience where we experienced the truly rich and history and culture of this ancient land. Saba guided us with his expert insight on all the peoples that have populated this region for more than 12,000 years and have left a legacy of art, engineering and traditions that are hard to grasp when you have been on this earth for less than a century. The archaeological and historical sites were punctuated by visits to the local bazaars, cafes and restaurants. The food was superb and I already miss it. We will never forget tour stop at the bazaar for pistachio coffee and freshly made baclava. Saba knows his stuff and you couldn’t be in better hands during your visit to Anatolia."
  • "Excellent tour! We took the 10 day tour with 3 day Eastern Turkey extension and the entire trip was amazing. Our tour guide Hassan was very knowledgeable and friendly and made the experience very special. Our group was only 4 people which made allowed us to adapt our itinerary and Hassan was excellent at keeping informed of any options. Our driver was excellent and they worked as a team to keep us safe, informed and entertained. The extension portion ended up as a private tour with just the two of us, and our guide for that portion was also excellent. The visits to the incredible historic sites were balanced with explorations of more modern areas of cities and museums. Accommodations were great, and food was delicious. Just a great experIence with great people."
