An incredibly wonderful trip with Venture Out… I can think of nothing you could have done better… You guided us through our journey so effortlessly every step, every day, to make the trip the best it could be… We so appreciated your extra special effort to make sure that everyone’s needs were met and they were…

We loved the Turkey vacation . . . It was just the right mix of structured activities and free time to be on our own . . very well organized. The guide answered all our questions and offered up a concise history of Turkey with interesting insights into the lives of historical figures. The Istanbul hotel was way more than I ever expected! It was comfortable, convenient yet off the beaten path, the staff were great, and the shower was to die for. The gulet was incredible. A relaxing pace with a fun stop each day. The boat crew were very nice . . Being something of a picky eater, food options on a planned trip concern me a little but there were so many varieties of food offered at each meal that you couldn’t go wrong . . . I was most impressed with the open and welcoming feeling I got from all the Turkish people we came in contact with . . . Loved the tour. I would recommend it to friends and we will consider some of the other destinations you offer in the future.

Thank you for all your assistance with my arrangements for the Turkey trip. I had a wonderful time. The tour guide was tremendous. There was nothing she could not talk about or explain for us. She fit right into the group and was a delight to have leading us. The accommodations were exceptional. The staff in Istanbul were very attentive and the rooms were true to the pictures. The gulet was incredible in all ways (food, rooms, decks, lounging areas, service, etc).  The Tour Manager was incredibly knowledgeable and well prepared for any scenario. He really has the right personality and skills for his job. The tour’s pace and balance of the itinerary was dead on to my expectations.  We did enough sites, but we had enough free time to explore on our own… Honestly, if I had to come up with a negative comment about the trip, it would be that there wasn’t enough chocolate in the dessert menus… I look forward to another trip with Venture Out.
