Tour: 10D7N Amazing Turkey(8 Jun 2018 - 17 Jun 2018)Tour Manager: Russell TanI need to express my sincerely thanks to the Tour Manager, Russell Tan. I injured my ankle on 9 Jun 2018 after lunch in Istanbul due to misstep. Russell helped to ask the tour guide to look for the private hospital for me to see doctor and also take the x-ray. I still enjoyed my trip after ensuring there was no major injury in my ankle. His extra help and care made our trip went smoothly. He also helped to take photos for our group members. My husband commented, “whenever we need his help, he is there”. He is really one of the best tour managers I ever have for all my trips. I will join EU again if the time of the tour suitable for us as the itinerary is good and the tour manager is helpful, caring, cheerful and make sure everything go smoothly.
This is the first time I went for a package tour with Singapore travel agent, and visiting Europe many years later since last time. The whole trip is definitely above my expectations. The itinerary is well planned, have both historical sites, scenery as well as long waited hot air ballon, and go for few cities including Istanbul, Canakkale, Pamukkale, Cappadocia and Ankara. On the actual dates, there were adjustments to the itinerary due to time constraints and local election. Despite of that, no time is wasted and eventually we visited all the places as per itinerary. Turkey local guide explained the history of every place in a very detailed manner for us to know the local history better. He got the sense of humour and made everyone laugh out. Our tour manager Melanie is an energetic, friendly and considerate young lady. She is responsible to every single one in the group. Before the trip, she called me to explain the things to bring and things I need to pay attention to. During the trip, every night she sent message to group chat of the next day’s itinerary. She helped every family to take photos when requested. She is always helpful and tried her best to help us when needed. All these made the trip an enjoyable and smooth one. This trip is really value for money and I will recommend to others.

The main highlight of the trip would be the hot air balloon in Cappadocia, another tick off the bucket list.Our tour manager Melanie is very attentive to everyone's needs and pays the fullest attention to every detail. She even brought us bwa kwa and chilli sauce for us from Singapore. Melanie will plan the schedule for the following day and WhatsApp to us the night before, another plus point for a tour manager, my first time seeing a tour manager doing this which is highly recommended and convenient for the travellers. Melanie is more like a friend to us than a tour manager as she's very friendly and she's able to interact well with both young and old.Recommendations. Tour program could be extended by a night or two, so that it'll be less hectic. And check local hotels properly before booking, as some hotels which claimed to be 5* are not actually up to 5* standard.First time travelling with EU travel, overall satisfied with the tour program, thumbs up for our tour manager Melanie �
Had a lot of fun during these 10days with Eu's tour mate, our tour manager (Russell) is a very friendly and patient & responsibility leader he always ensure everyone safety and check that everyone are on board. He speak fluently English and Mandarin. Recommended Turkey local tour guide :(Ozcan Alkan ) he is awesome guide that speak fluently English and talked a lot of turkey's history and life sharing and explain whatever knowledge to us , he let us feel like a father that take caring the group, last and not least I would like to give you 5 star for the service
We had an enjoyable 10D7N Turkey Trip from 1-10 September 2017 with EU Holidays and would like to thanks our tour manager, Ms Kek Ooi Leng.
