You can use your own service provider to make phone calls and internet data. You need to check with service provider if your service plan is covered to use in Turkey. If not, you may buy a local sim card from Turkey.

If meal is covered by us, we arrange nice, reliable local restaurants. If you pay your meal, we arrange restaurants based on your preferences. We make sure that you taste popular local food at different destinations. We offer Vegetarian and Vegan food options on request. Simply let us know the food option that you prefer. We are also sensitive about Halal and Kosher based on your preferences. For all meals we offer standard menu with different choices for the customers. Alcoholic beverages and any demands out of the menu are subject for extra.  Weather: Turkey has four seasons with all kinds of climates geographically. This creates an advantage for visitors to experience all four seasons with different type of holiday in different parts of the country. While swimming in the west, you may be skiing in the east part of the country! While you are freezing in the north part, you may be warm in the south. So, timing is important to travel Turkey to arrange your trip based on the activities and destinations you want to cover. Best season for expeditions is from the end of June to end of September. The sailing tours in the Mediterranean are best from the beginning of May to the end of October. Winter tourism starts mid-December and lasts till mid-March. Springtime is good for all activities except swimming and mountaineering. Summer time is not good for South East part of Turkey since it’s so hot. The best time to visit this part is spring or autumn. Black Sea has different beauties in four seasons. The best time to visit Black Sea starts from April and ends by November if you are not interested in winter tourism. Here are temperature ranges during the seasons: o Autumn: 12°C -24°C o Winter: 4°C -12°C o Spring: 10°C -20°C o Summer: 20°C -35°C  Clothing: There is no obligatory dress code for the tour . Smart casual or any other desired codes would be fine. Just for our visits to mosques, women need to wear headscarf and skirts or cropped pants that fall below the knee, men should not wear shorts (Long or half long type pants is ok.). However, the officials provide relevant clothes at the entrance of the mosques for free. The wearing code may differ from season to season. You will need comfortable walking shoes, all-weather coat, a sweater, and clothes you can layer.  Shopping: If you wish to buy some souvenirs or popular Turkish products such as carpet, leather, ceramics, jewelry etc., our team will assist you to arrange first-hand quality locally crafted shopping. We take you to local shops by ensuring the quality and authenticity of their products with reasonable prices. Please let us know if you want to do shopping and we will provide most reasonable options for you at local level.  Meals: I would like you to experience different styles of Turkish food culture. So, I would suggest not going to fancy tourist restaurants which are unreasonably expensive. Instead, I would suggest going to nice local restaurants. Please let me know if you have any specific preference for restaurants and also food preference throughout the tour.  Emergency Contact: Please feel free to call me 7/24 hours from +90-536-290 8221 for any emergency cases or if you need any assistance.
