Tesekkurler Rosie for the wonderful memories from the most adventurous, colourful, and exciting trip to Turkey in 2011.

Dear Rosie,

I just wanted to thank you so much for the fabulous tour that you took us on in Turkey. It was so well organised and so much fun, I cant’t remember when I have enjoyed a holiday so much.. I have been telling everyone about it and how wonderful you were, nothing seemed to be too much trouble for you to organise. Every day was another adventure full of interesting information and fun. Rosie, your enthusiasm was so infectious. How lucky we all were to have enjoyed each others company so much on such a fabulous trip.

Thanks again Rosie for a fabulous 3 weeks, Love Amanda.

I’m still enjoying the tour on retrospect – what a great time we had! The tour was even better than I had anticipated. Everything was wonderful – it was great to meet some Turkish people, the food was good, each day’s excursion was different and always interesting, the company was also good, and we had lots of FUN.


Dear Rosie,

Portakal Turkey Tours is the best!

We have had the best holiday ever, thankyou for looking after us so well, and introducing us to the fascinating Turkish culture. Your thoroughness, sense of humour, organisation of the tour has been much appreciated. We love Turkey and we love Portakal Turkey Tours.

Best wishes, Steve and Lindy.

I have loved every aspect of our tour from the history of Turkey, to the activities, the sights and the food! Your knowledge and contacts made the experience especially memorable and easy. Thank you for all the little extras you did, they were greatly appreciated.

We were very lucky with our group of people being so compatible, and the weather was perfect, but more than that the tour was wonderfully varied and the Tour Director so enthusiastic and efficient, one couldn’t help having fun. The tour was better than we expected due to Rosie’s diligent pre-planning and ability to adapt to all the challenges we threw at her!

Hi there Rosie

Just got back from a few days in Melbourne to find the book you sent to us -what a treasure and the “icing on the cake ” for us. Thank you Rosie and this book I feel reflects the extra you went to during the whole tour. We must catch up and have an apple tea /turkish coffee. Then we can find out how things are with you, show off our carpet ,ceramic plate and Brian his power point presentation of his culled photos from 967 to 647!!

Tesekkur ederim, Brian and Carol

Dear Portakal,

Thanks for a “fabulous” trip.

It was a great tour and we all really appreciated the work and effort that you put into making us all gel together.


Dear Rosie,

Thank you very very much for a fantastic three weeks. I’d never even contemplated joining a tour before and I don’t think I will again as none could possibly match up to the huge fun we had with you. Thanks for being such a relaxed and indulgent leader and for showing us so many great things. I am now determined to return to Turkey thanks to the fantastic introduction provided by you.
