GUIDE BOOKS & MAGAZINES

Argeus Tours can help with bicycling, walking and riding holidays as well as with day tours, airport transfer and flights.

GEZI Travel / TURKIYE - Ekim 2003


Through an American company, we had tentatively booked a car to be picked up after our first five days in Istanbul. It was to cost about $1,600 for the 34 days. However when we made our reservations for Cappadocia, the Turkish agency Argeus Tourism & Travel suggested that they could arrange for a car to be delivered to our hotel in Istanbul. We were skeptical, but they made us an offer we couldn't refuse.

What a deal! We got our car (a 4-door Ford Escort), four nights' stay in a delightful hotel in Ürgüp, Cappadocia, and the services of a professional guide for two full days in Cappadocia all for $1,400.This even included lunches at two unusual restaurants while there. It was one of our smartest moves.
