Urgup is also home to Argeus Travel Agency-the regions best. Although some travelers tell of tourist agency buses that conveniently break down in front of the owner’s rug store, Argeus runs a thoroughly professional operation that can provide you with everything from group or private tours by van (including well-versed English-speaking guides) to hot-air balloon trips over the entire valley.

Thank you so much for making our visit such a success! We had a wonderful time with you guys and just wished that we could have stayed a few more weeks! We really enjoyed meeting you all and hope that we can visit Turkey with Argeus again soon! As soon as we get organized we will send some pictures - I think we have pictures of both of you! Once again, thank you so very much for being such competent and gracious hosts. We will give your name to everyone who asks! Please use us as Riferimenti if you wish to. We'll look forward to hearing from you soon.

I am very impressed with your response to my inquiry. After looking at all the websites I could find on Turkey tours, I sent essentially the same message I sent to you to two other tour companies in Turkey. I received prompt responses from each of you. But your reply was so far superior in reflecting understanding, capability, and creativity that I do not plan to give further consideration to either of them. I did initially Contatto a tour operator here in the US, to inquire about the general feasibility of the trip. His response to everything has been, "Yes, I can do that." But he has yet to indicate how he would do anything. I realize that itinerary building is difficult given the limited information I'm able to provide. That is why I appreciate your perceptiveness.

Dear Sir,
Through your help, my wife and I fully enjoyed the experience at Cappadocia. Even though we didn't spend enough time over there, we made the most impressive trip into whole city.

Thank you and I wish you a great summer.

Cordially Yours,

Youngju Park

…. As I told you before, the service the three of you provided was truly excellent. Argeus, in contrast to some of the other tourist businesses we encountered in Turkey, made genuine efforts to provide the highest quality of service to us. I think it is companies like Argeus, which exhibit a high level of integrity with respect to tourists that will have people, particularly those in the United States, returning to Turkey for more visits. If you would like, you may share this email with your boss or any other tourist who seeks a recommendation for Argeus.

Thank you again.

Dear Aydin,

My very first impression for you, when we started communicating for our trip to Cappadocia was really very good, it could not be better! After I personally met you there, I realized that I was wrong! You were much more nice and kind and efficient than anyone could expect! And I say that now, that there can not be any reason or afterthought from my side to flatter you or exaggerate, right?

So, please accept my most cordial thanks and gratitude for organizing this trip for us, for your kindness and your efficiency. Be sure that I have wholeheartedly promoted to everyone here in Greece, Argeus Travel and you personally…


Dear Aydin Bey,

I want to thank you for all your care a good service. Everything went well. We liked the hotel in Istanbul, especially the location. The staff was very helpful and courteous. We enjoyed the city, and we were lucky with the weather.

I think, I will put Cappadocia to the top of the list of my favorite places in the world – your excellent organization and the knowledge and expertise of Adnan, has as much to do with it as the beauty of the landscape and the handwork of past generations.

I certainly intend to visit Cappadocia someday soon, and will recommend your office to all our friends and acquaintances.

Wishing you all the best, and hope to see you soon here in Israel, or in your country.

Warm Regards,


To the Manager/Owner, Argeus Travel

We just returned home from traveling through Eastern Turkey with Edip Ozcan Arslan. I wanted to let you know how excellent a guide Edip was. He was consistently well-informed, accommodating, interested in our welfare and satisfaction, and attentive to our needs. That is what one expects from a good guide. However, Edip was not only a good guide but excellent company as well. His sense of humor and his easy going personality made it a pleasure to be with him. In general, he enhanced a well designed and most interesting trip and made us very happy travelers. His handling of a few frustrating situations along the way helped to keep those instances from interfering in our pleasure.

Please feel free to use us as Riferimenti for your agency and give Edip our very best wishes. Since I am in the travel business, I hope I can be of help to you on some future occasion.

Dear Mr. Arslan

I just wanted to thank you for your quality services on our recent trip to Istanbul. We have traveled extensively and have used upscale guide and travel services before. Your communication and services were as good as any we have used before. I appreciated your prompt and thorough email communication.

Our guide for our two days in Istanbul was terrific. Her name was S. Bihter Kuranel and she asked us to call her just "B". Her English was excellent, as good if not better than any college educated American. She knew the sites very well and was happy to answer all the other questions we had about Turkish culture, religion, and the political situation. We truly enjoyed our time with her.

Thank you again for making these arrangements. We highly recommend you to anyone visiting Turkey and we look forward to Contattoing you the next time we visit Turkey.

Hi Pauline,

My husband and I recently completed a short trip to Turkey. It was planned totally via email with Argeus Travel Agency, operation@argeus.com.tr, in Cappadocia, Turkey. Edip Ozcan Arslan was our Contatto in Urgup. He paid careful attention to all our requests booking our hotels, transport, and activities. He sent detailed itineraries. After final arrangements were approved by us, payment was arranged. He selected knowledgeable guides and drivers who made our visit very special. We enjoyed a hot air balloon ride with Cappadocia Balloons flying over spectacular country. The Eresin Crown, our hotel in Istanbul, was located near the Blue Mosque and within walking distance of many famous and historical sites. The Esbelli Evi, cave hotel, in Urgup was comfortable, unusual, and interesting. Staff at both hotels made our stay very pleasant. Food throughout was well prepared and beautifully served. People were friendly, helpful, and willing to engage in discussions despite the fact that we spoke no Turkish and had to rely on our guide or the English of our hosts. Many questioned why more people do not travel to Turkey. It has a beautiful and varied terrain, wonderful seacoast, many historical sites, and museums to explain them. It has excellent accommodations and restaurants and enough shopping possibilities for even the jaded shopper. We felt welcome and hope to return soon. Before engaging Argeus Travel Agency, we read Frommer’s Turkey (2002). It was selected based on the fact that it had been updated since Sept 11, 2001 and was a comprehensive guide to all the areas our friends had recommended we visit.

Edip Ozcan Arslan kept in touch with us throughout the trip and even ascertained that we were checked in for our return flight. He sent a welcome home e-mail greeting us and our family back in the U.S. I have rarely worked with such a thorough planner and thoughtful agent. I can highly recommend Argeus Agency.

Hi Aydin,

Although it is my second day back at work in New York City, I am only here physically.

We had a wonderful time in Turkey. There is so much history to tell in Turkey, especially in Cappadocia and Ephesus.

Your guides were just wonderful. I am so glad we had a chance to actually meet you in person. When someone said “Argeus” was the best, I absolutely agree a 100 % and more.

Thank you very much for making our trip a memorable one for all of us.

Dear Edip,

Our trip in Turkey was absolutely fantastic, wonderful, and totally perfect. Mustafa was a great driver and a wonderful person. We all felt safe with him at the wheel and totally comfortable that he would be able to handle any situation. Uzay has an amazingly deep knowledge of history of Turkey which he was able to articulate in a compelling manner. He was an incredible host and guide. All the restaurants he chose had great food. He made us all feel comfortable, relaxed, and well cared for. We all fell in love with Turkey and hope to return some day.

Your company does an excellent job, and we’ll certainly recommend it to anyone planning on visiting Turkey. We hope that all you keep well and that your business continues to prosper.

Kind Regards,
Susan Striepe

We traveled with your great company two years ago and had a wonderful experience with your country and the people we met. Also, we remember that on September 11, you sent your American friends an e-mail telling us you were thinking of us. It meant a lot to us to receive that from you. I felt the urge to write you this time and to apologize for the unfortunate strain our two countries find themselves in. This war can not be good for tourism and it can’t be good for the fostering good will between our countries. Please don’t let the current events color your view of the Americans that are peace loving. We will come back to Turkey to support the travel industry and your business.

Heidi Fischer and Carol Lovett

Hi Aydin,

I trust all is well. I just wanted to drop a note and tell you how much we enjoyed our trip to Cappadocia and our tour. Uzay and Huseyin did an OUTSTANDING job. It reflects very well on Argeus to have employees of their quality.

We have been recommending to anyone who expresses any interest in Turkey your company. We will be back sometime in the next three years and will certainly use Argeus again.

Once again, thank you.

Jim Petersen

Dear Mehmet,

On behalf of my friends, I wanted to thank you again for your help in planning our trip in Turkey. We all had a wonderful time. Of course, much of the credit for execution of the plan goes to Uzay; we have told him how much we appreciate his efforts. He was able to take full advantage of the flexibility in the plan and to adapt the schedule to our desires and changing conditions. Most importantly, we always felt that the main goal shared by both of you, was that we enjoy ourselves by seeing and learning as much as we could of Turkey.

If you ever need an Israeli recommendation, please feel free to use my name.

Best Regards,
