Brilliant!!!! Saba made my one month in Eastern Turkey very exciting and meaningful. Traversing through Antakya-Gaziantep-Nemrut-Sanliurfa-Mardin-Midyat-Van-Dogubeyazit-Kas, we not only covered the attractions, but also experiencing all these wonderful places from a local point of view, which I absolutely loved and appreciate! Extremely resourceful, Saba even managed to arrange a trip for me to Karahan Tepe, after visiting Gobekli Tepe.,, Wow!!! Definitely planning a second trip with Saba very soon Insya Allah.. 😀

It was my first time in East Turkey and Thanks to my lovely guide Sabaheldin it was a great life experiences. In the middle of my trip I read on Google about Urfa and Miunt Nemrut so I asked Sabaheldin if we can visit them. Although these two places where far and require that he drive extra 6-8 hours. He did the impossible and managed to show me these places to make my trip exceptional.

I traveled in September/October 2021 (12 Day and Fabulous tours). The tours were wonderful, hotels were COVID-clean and safe, and the logistics were very well done. What sets this company apart, though, was the extra lengths they went to, to make my Turkish adventure a success. I had left my camera in a cab in Ankara, before the tours started, and they were fantastic in (1) finding the cab and (2) coordinating with the hotel to mail it to me. Who does that in America? I had other little problems, mostly in communication, and they were extra-helpful as well. After I'd left the 12-Day tour, and needed help with my departure PCR test, they helped when the local tour leader was unable to sort out the details. The 12-Day tour is a remarkable itinerary, and I must comment Salahattin, who was MUCH more than just the driver: he would take care of little things (like upgrading a hotel room, helping out with a shopping experience, etc) that were more than were strictly required. Traveling during a pandemic year was far less stressful because I knew my tour company would take care of me.

We used Alkan tour to organise a trip for 20 friends to Eastern Turkey. Sabahattin was everything we needed. He knew the area well, he found an excellent guide (which we reused later), he always found a way for us to do what we wanted to do. He also steered us to the right local places to eat. Finally, he was honest and fun. We did another tour with him to the Causasus,the year after and I would use him again anytime.

We can’t say what part was our favorite of the trip with Alkans Tours as every place that we were taken had its own magic. Alkans Tours takes you through a cultural, historical and culinary experience through Turkey. We have been lucky enough to go on two separate trips with this company and are in the process of planning our third. We could not recommend them enough.
