"I very much enjoyed the talks by William Taylor and our guide Hamdi, who were both very knowledgeable. Istanbul is a buzzy place with great scenery, history and interesting people & visitors. To see the city and its surroundings placed in perspective was very insightful. I learned a lot, from Rev'd Taylor and Hamdi and also the other party members. I am looking forward to going back to Istanbul in the future.

"Early morning walks around the Blue mosque and Hagia Sophia, before the crowds. Meeting Father Ian Sherwood. In general, becoming aware of the tragedies affected the disenfranchised minorities in the Middle East & Central Asia, and how they are related to their shared religious and cultural histories.

"Your guide Turgay is excellent both in his knowledge and helpfulness and very pleasant and fun. The holiday was enjoyable and well worth while.
"There were many highlights on this tour but the tour of Delphi was excellent. With the back drop of the mountains, it was very peaceful and idyllic. The extension in Hydra was brilliant. It was a very relaxing and peaceful island and was ideal way to unwind before the main tour.
