Traveler Reviews

    Turista did a great job planning our private Istanbul and Cappadocia tours. They booked all our Turkey airport transportation, domestic flights, tours, hot air balloon ride, and horseback ride. We only booked hotels and showed up. Our Istanbul guide, Tulay, was informative and great with children. She went with the flow and showed us all the sights we wanted to see. She knew when places were busy so we would avoid crowded areas. Turista made the trip hassle free and easy. We also had constant WhatsApp communication.
