Tour Manager: Shirley WangTour Package: 10D7N AMAZING TURKEY + 2N DOHADate: 6th to 16th March 2020Shirley has been nothing but wonderful the entire trip! We brought my mother in law with us and is her first trip with EU holidays. She is very impressed with Shirley's hospitality. She has been on many tour groups but none has impressed her as much as Shirley and she hopes our next trip can be with Shirley again.Throughout the trip, Shirley has been fun, helpful, informative, experienced, advisable and we had alot of fun with her. She takes care of everyone and do her best to fulfill everyone's requests. She even took the extra effort to add everyone in her whatsapp and gives daily information about the weather and advises everyone what type of attire to wear for the day.We hope we can travel with Shirley again as she is simply a dear!
My husband and I joined the 11D/8N tour to Turkey with tour manager Shirley Wang in Nov2019 （11MTISTW16/19EK). Shirley is a very fun person to be with. She will take care of all aspects within the tour package, but she will also try her best to accomodate to requests. For instance, we spent two nights at Cappadocia, we took the hot-air balloon on the first, but we didn't have a good opportunity to view the balloons in the air from a good viewing location. The group feedbacked to Shirley, and she arranged for an adhoc stop the next day for the entire group to take more pictures. The group was overjoyed. There is also another instance where our bus was stuck in a tunnel in Istanbul for a good 45 minutes due to a traffic accident. Shirley kept the group entertained with singing and cracked jokes. The hotels were generally good. There were some days where the travelling times on the bus was just too long because of distance (Turkey is a big country). The meals were mostly local fare consisting of salads, and either beef or chicken, there were also one or two meals with fish. The tour group also arranged two dinners of Chinese food and a steak burger lunch (optional tour). Overall, we had a wonderful time in Turkey but we felt that we could have been more relaxed if there was another extra day.
