Hakan was one of our most favoured tour guides in Turkey. His passion and enthusiasm for his region was both palpable and enlivening. He was happy to answer all our questions and was absolutely patient with a shutterbug like myself (who often lags behind for the "best shot"). He was also a unique combination of kindness, compassion and entertainer (with a sense of humour that kept us Australians buying tickets for more - metaphorically). Thanks Hakan, one of our more favourite tours. You are muhteşem!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Glen. It was a great day , hope to see you again

Very timely and informative. He went out of his way to accommodate our 2 year old. He was flexible to accommodate our special needs and went overtime without added charges. I highly recommend w/o reservations.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Alan. This is very kind of you. Best wishes

This was a wonderful tour. Hakan provided us with a very enjoyable narrative during our private tour of Ephesus. He was able to balance the historical information of the area with the modern day life of the people. He made the day meaningful for us. He also took us to a lovely lunch place that served delicious food at a reasonable price. We enjoyed the fresh ingredients and the native flavors. We would book with him again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Sharon, it was an excellent day for me too. Hope to see you again
Hakan, you were a super guide. The tour of Ephesus was excellent, with so much interesting information.You then took us to a delightful cafe where we sat under beautiful trees to refresh, before we continued our tour to the Government sponsored carpet factory, where we were given an excellent tour of carpet making techniques.Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Shirley, All the best from Turkey,

Hakan was a truly excellent and knowledgeable guide to Ephesus, the museum, etc. He was perfect in knowing how much to tell us about what we were seeing throughout the tour, and then leaving us enough time to explore on our own before moving to the next site. Since I am on crutches, and the weather was unusually hot (even for Ephesus), we appreciated his total willingness to let us set the pace and to decide whether or not to make some stops along the way. I can highly recommend Hakan!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Susan, you are so kind. Hope to see you again

Hakan was wonderful. He is knowledgeable, friendly, and helped us to efficiently use our time. We took about eight excursions, and this had to be one of the best. I highly recommend hiring Hakan for any tour! The Hunters
Very likable tour guide (Hakan). Extraordinarily knowledgeable about history, architecture and local culture. We had an extremely interesting and delightful day.
