Amazing Trip to Istanbul with Berat from Trail Travel through KimKim

I used Berat with Trail Travel through KimKim for my trip to Istanbul. I have to say, from start to finish, they were incredibly responsive! They arranged, with my feedback, for some thoughtful excursions and my guide, Ibrahim, was so knowledgeable. If you can request him I strongly suggest you do so.

I used Berat with Trail Travel through KimKim for my trip to Istanbul. I have to say, from start to finish, they were incredibly responsive! They arranged, with my feedback, for some thoughtful excursions and my guide, Ibrahim, was so knowledgeable. If you can request him I strongly suggest you do so. I learned so much about the Turkish culture from him as well as hitting some amazing restaurants and he is an incredibly lovely man. Ladies, be sure to take a scarf to wear in the mosques, we should be respectful of this long-standing religions beliefs. The mosques were breathtaking, the bazaars very interesting but be careful when buying and don't overpay! The largest cistern Ibrahim took me too was out of this world beautiful, he has great connections! The hamam that Berat arranged was a memorable experience. You will be naked so be prepared for this but it was so relaxing and I highly recommend it! Overall, Berat and her team made this a trip to remember. I usually do not revisit a place twice but I might make an exception for Istanbul. ❤️❤️❤️. Thank you, Berat and Ibrahim, for your amazing service and assistance!

Hotel Review
Sirkeci Mansion Hotel
Istanbul

This is a humble hotel but the location is great. However, what really makes it special are the people. They truly care that you have a great stay while here. It was my birthday when I visited and the staff worked with my family to have a cake brought to my room where they sang Happy Birthday...you don't see this kind of thoughtfulness just anywhere. The daily breakfast is also fantastic. I highly recommend this hotel in Istanbul!

Wow, this is the best way to sum it up. The experience here was like nothing else. You will be naked so keep this in mind but if you prefer not to remove the wrap you can wear a swimsuit. Just note, everyone else will be naked. They are very good about be respectful so don't worry. You must experience this! You will leave feeling relaxed and pampered. Do not leave Istanbul without this experience!

Dispite a rocky start after missing our flight from Istanbul we had a terrific tour.

Our guide Hati in Cappadocia was awesome, we hear stories and history along the way and there was never a dull moment. From outdoor museums to pottery to underground cities and of course our ballon ride, it was a wonderful visit.
We arrived in Izmir on the late flight a enjoyed a great sleep in followed by a fantastic breakfast. The house of the vergin Mary was a great followed by Ephesus which can only be described as amazingly wonderous. To walk in the same places and touch the same stone as some of histories most famous and iconic people was truely incredible. Topping the tour off with a visit to the thermal spa in Pamukkale made sure this was a trip we will not forget and will be part of our conversations for a long time to come.

It was a customized tour plan and since I was a single traveler Murat and team made sure I was always taken care and never felt unsafe.

From Volkan, hatice to Murat himself were very good hosts and excellent travel buddies.

Istanbul - hotel, food everything was good. It’s a vibrant city and should be seen only on foot like I did! Do not miss the baklava, grand bazaar or the blue mosque!

Cappadocia- by far my most favorite destination. Gul Konnaklari!! Is a beautiful medieval castle.. and I MYST recommend their small restaurant for a dinner. Absolutely gorgeous! Both food and people
And my best guide was Hatice- she is fun and knowledgeable and practical. And the highlight of Turkey is the Hot Air Balloon that nobody should miss!

sirince - it’s a beautiful location but the crown jewel is the hotel NISANYAN! I landed late at night and was not so impressed but in the morning I instantly regretted not staying longer.. the food was fantastic.. service is amazing and the room they gave me had the best views. Not only do I recommend I will definitely return to enjoy more time there..

All in all it was a very well organized tour. Highly recommend Murat and his team if you are planning to go.. Turkey is a beautiful country with a lot of heart and soul! must Visit

Good day Berat and the Kimkim team,
We are still trying to get to grips with normal life after our magical tour through your beautiful country. We enjoyed every minute of a very well organised and amazingly comprehensive visit to all the historical and cultural places in such a short time.
Mr Ibrahim was a very patient and informative guide in Istanbul and unlocked the wonders of the beautiful mosques, palaces and especially the cistern for us .
The tour through Cappadocia, Konya, Parmukkale and Sirence was unforgettable and we could not wish for a better guide as Hatija (? Hati for us). She was wow, fun, informative and altogether a wonderful person. She had a problem with a cold in her face, but she still soldered on to give us her best. The hot air balloons, the underground dwellings, the unbelievable landscape, the dervishes show, the visit to Ephesus, the Goreme open air museum, the ancient ruins, the karavanserai, the wooden mosque, the thermal waterfalls were all awesome and Hati made it really come to life for us. And hats off to the safe, friendly and patient driver of the very comfortable bus we travelled in.
Our hotels were lovely, very well appointed and comfortable. At the Dóga Thermal Hotel in Parmukkale we had an awesome dinner and enjoyed the thermal spa.We would have loved to stay longer in Sirence, maybe in one of the inns in the village - but next time! We also would love to add Kuśadasi and the Valley of the butterflies!
We brought back lots of memories, leather jackets, silk scarves, pottery, a carpet, jewellery, trinkets, lots of photos that will forever remind us of your magic country.
Back in Istanbul we had another excellent guide that took us to the artisans at the rooftops over the Grand Bazaar and also to the Asian side. I can still hear the sound of the muezzins calling all to pray!
At the Sirkeci Mansion hotel we really befriended the very helpful staff who went out of their way to accommodate us on our last day.
The country transported us to ages past, with a mixture of faith, art and history prevalent in all the historic sites.

Thank you all for making our trip unforgettable.
From Hermien, Kriek, Suzette and Marietjie.

We had been warned away from Troy, but our guide, Erdem Keseli, did a great job of interpreting the site and the museum, as he did for the other sights we visited (Gallipoli, Assos, Pergamon, Asclepion, and Ephesus). We enjoyed the hotels Berat selected, especially the Sunset Boutique Hotel in Assos where we had a great view and the best breakfast! The last night of our trip in Sirince at the Hotel Manolian was disturbed by the loud barking of the street dogs, though there's little the hotel could do to prevent that. It was otherwise comfortable and well located for wandering the streets of the village. Overall, everyone we interacted with on our trip, guide, driver and hotel staff were warm and welcoming and we are already dreaming of our next trip to Turkey!

This is a charming hotel in walking distance from the commercial center of Bergama. It was quiet and comfortable and the staff were very welcoming.

There is a charming courtyard where you can relax with a drink any time of day.
