A Recent Review of this tour

Emre has an excellent historical knowledge and will talk about his life in Turkey very openly. We had a two hour discussion of Turkish politics on the way into town that I initiated and I found his insight fascinating. He helped out with my wheelchair and put a lot of effort into the entire day. I would highly recceomend him as a guide.
