We know that our service can only be as good as our staff. Efficient coordination and smooth operation are essential to ensure the pleasure and comfort of our guests. Our staff members are well known for their professionalism and good manners, as well as their ability to organize complex itineraries. Our trip leaders are both highly skilled and experienced outdoor people and intellectual university graduates with extensive training and excellent language skills. They can lead hikes to out-of-the-way locations, communicate with local people, lecture knowledgeably at classical sites, discuss all aspects of Turkish culture, history and politics, and arrange menus that showcase local specialties and suit the tastes of individual guests. Perhaps most important, they are also warm, dynamic people with good senses of humor. Our support staff are equally well trained to fulfill the expectations of travelers. The crews of our gullets work quietly to stay on schedule and maintain spotless order while monitoring our guests’ safety and comfort. The cooks on board amaze our guests with the miracles they create in their tiny galleys. The drivers who take us from place to place conform with western standards of speed and safety.
