The Chicago Tribune highlights great travel deal in ‘A Taste of Turkey’

I’m always happy to offer travelers fantastic tours at great prices, and I know that our Taste of Turkey tour accomplishes both goals. So I was delighted that Mary Forgione, a contributor to the Chicago Tribune‘s Taking Off blog, noted the same thing.

She wrote a great piece featuring our tour that takes travelers through the wonders and history of Turkey.

I also covered Turkey in a new blog series called Getaway Dossier, where I’ve posted some important and interesting facts that travelers will want to have about the destination before they venture abroad.

I hope you’ll check out the Turkey Getaway Dossier and then hop over to see all that Mary said about our Taste of Turkey tour. Thanks for the coverage, Mary!
