Hakan is a nice guide, but the tour had part of it in factories of leather. Of course it is nice to visit them, but I guess there is so many things to see in Kusadasi and it was a waist of time. Ephesus and the House of Virgin Mary were wonderful and very well explaned
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Maria booked an Ephesus and shopping tour. We did our tour wonderful, after tour we visited a leather factory, demonstration took only five minutes, a couple interested with a leather jacket, so they waited for the rest around 20 minutes. They were 2 couples and from same family. This is not my fault, they booked a shopping tour. We did not visit many factories, just one on the way back. On the other hand, I did not steal their time from tour, we did this at the end of the tour.

Hakan was a great tour guide. We had lots of room in the van and it was air conditioned and stocked with cold water! He was very knowledgeable about the attractions and we could take as much time as we wanted with our private tour. I highly recommend Hakan!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Alicia, All the best wishes Hakan

My family and I recently experienced the Best of Ephesus and Shopping tour with Hakan. What a wonderful time we had. We were a group of twenty but that did not hamper the tour in anyway. From the the very first email with Hakan, I knew that things were going to be alright. He was very knowlegeable about Ephesus and all the other places we visited. Thank you Hakan for all your help and will definitely recommend to all our friends from Bermuda a Tours by Locals tour for their future travels.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kim. I learned as well what a wonderful people from Bermuda. Hope to see you again

We had the pleasure of touring Ancient Ephesus with Hakan! Our tour was extremely informative and perfect for us. Hakan was extremely accommodating to our needs and was very flexible with our itinerary. We were able to see many key areas of Kusadasi in a short period of time. Hakan was very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend touring with him, you will not be disappointed!
We had a great experience in Izmir and Ephesus guided by Hakan with the right mix of history and culture. Our three young children were involved by venues demonstrating carpet weaving and pottery. Nice job of coordinating our group. Thanks.
