A Recent Review of this tour

Emre is a pleasant and knowledgeable individual, who clearly knows his stuff. He had organized everything perfectly well, but with enough flexibility for us to start or end earlier or later, or change the planned itinerary. Being knowledgeable myself in history I was very impressed by how much he knew, not only about Turkish history per se, but also about Christianity (he could tell us about the whole history of Jesuus when we visited the Chora church. Overall a very successful trip!
