We are back in Hong Kong now and wanted to really thank you for looking after us and the holiday arrangements so well. We got lots of memorable photos of Istanbul and two flying carpets (thanks to you). We are really looking forward to getting them and laying it our new home.
I will be sure to recommend you to my many friends, who I know have yet to visit your historical country. I know they will be well looked after and well advised by you who has such a passion for your work.
Peace to you and your family.
When I return home from a wonderful vacation, I make a point to send my thanks to the people who made it happen. This is late, but I am sending my best to all of you. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The arrangements you made worked perfectly. We loved your hotel and the food. Your guide for the tour of Ephesus was excellent. Once again Turkey more than lived up to our expectations. Please give everyone our best regards and our thanks. If you ever need a reference, do not hesitate to use us.
It was wonderful to hear from you! Our trip and the time we spent with you and your family are still fresh in our memories too. In fact, I just gave Keith and Gini Wisbaum a framed pair of photographs (to thank them for introducing us to you!) of the Sultanahmet Mosque across the Marmara at 5:30 AM – a shot I took from your car when you first picked us up – and the beautiful domes inside. We also think fondly of your idyllic inn – your delightful wife and staff, the wonderful food, the sounds of the village in the morning, and the beauty of the countryside. I’m glad you’re enjoying it yourself for a change!
We send this little greeting with our sincere affection and very best wishes to you and your family for a happy and prosperous 2009 – may we all make the best of the changes and opportunities to come!! I hope we can see you again in the coming year – Turkey is calling to us!!
We arrived home without incident yesterday. Thank you again for creating such a memorable experience for us. I’ll send you some pictures in a separate email – and once I’ve cleared through the piles on my desk,
With sincere gratitude,
well we have arrived safely back in Australia. We were home just in time to have Christmas with our families. I am writing to thank you for the time in Turkey. It was the most wonderful place in which to complete our journey. Our first impressions of Istanbul with you in the car were so positive and they never wavered. We were blessed with good weather but also blessed to have the services of Aytekan. He was so patient with the children and such good company for Bill and I. The tour you organised for us was perfect and each day was well spent and truly a joy. The hotel was just right and the driver also very kind. We always felt perfectly safe in his hands.
Bill enjoyed his time so much that he is already talking of a return visit to see more of the countryside. But I think first we must return to our work and send our children back to school!
Please our extend our most sincere thanks to all those involved in our tour and if ever yourself or Aytekan find the opportunity to visit Australia we would certainly welcome you and be pleased to show our part of the world. Sincerely and with best wishes for the coming year
