Deniz was absolutely fantastic! I don't think a history teacher would know more than he did. He was so informative at the historical sites, and the lunch was beyond what we expected. It was so beautiful under the trees on the lawn with the linen draped tables. Icing on the cake. The carpet, ceramic and leather making shops were VERY interesting. I would highly recommend Denizhan for any tour.
