Why Danytur?

    Careful Planning
    We plan each itinerary as if it were our own vacation. We're travelers too, and we know how important the pace of a vacation is. We match hotels to your preference and style and choose modes of transportation that maximize your sightseeing experience as well as your comfort. We carefully plan our programs to ensure you have enough time at each stop to see the sights and have ample leisure time to relax. Breakfast is included daily, but most other meals are on your own so you can experience local specialities and choose from a wide variety of restaurants.

    More Flexibility
    Our tours are designed with maximum flexibility in mind. Many other tour companies offer two or even three levels of accommodation. But Danytur trips offer even more flexibility, mixing-and-matching accommodation tiers within the same program/tour. Your Tour Consultant will help you to put together a trip of the best possible value.

About the founders

A graduate of Marmara University English Language and Literature faculty Sina Danyal, originally worked for the biggest destination management and bus company in Turkey, between 1976 and 1990. It was here that he realized travel was his destiny. He grew to love the travel business and meeting people from all over the world, proud in the knowledge that they would go out into the world as ambassadors of Turkey. In 1990, Sina decided, together with his father Ayhan, brother Gokhan and friends Nur Ali Dogan and Sezai Esfak Vardioglu (whom he had met at Marmara University) to establish Danytur. Sina manages Danytur operations from Istanbul; Ali is a professional tour guide himself and responsible for scheduling the tour guides for our group tours and tailor-made private programs. Sezai is also a professional tour guide and responsible for the Aegean region, and oversees the quality of the gulet (yacht) operations. Ayhan Danyal is a retired bank manager who gave invaluable support to Sina and the company at its foundation. He still comes to the office and is happy to spend time with his sons. Gokhan also helps manage the Istanbul office. This team of five and Sina's wife Figen have worked harmoniously ever since.
