We took a day trip from Istanbul and our flight was delayed by one hour. Tijen was at the exit when j called her to say we had arrived. We went straight to the house of Mother Mary and thankfully many of the tour groups were done by that time. I later heard from a friend who was also there that day that there was a Mass earlier and we felt bad we missed it. Tijen was great and very informative. We asked her to take us to St. John's Cathedral and she obliged as we had time. Thanks Tijen you were great!

Tijen was excellent! Very knowledgeable, and helpful, even giving advice for the rest of our Turkey trip. Great sense of humour as well, and such a lovely person.

Tijen was prompt and took our group of 12 directly to Ephesus with tidbits of information along the way about the area we were passing. In Ephesus she included the children in the tour and made it interesting even for my four year old boy. She was knowledgable and friendly and told us some fascinating history of the area. Also she took us to a tile/pottery demonstration where she had set up lunch while we watched the guy make pottery. It was a perfect end to a lovely tour. Use Tijen as a guide!

Tijen was WONDERFUL! she knows her history and is very proud of her country. We wanted to eat in a local restaurant and she took us to a small place where the women were making the pastry sandwiches the way the have made them for eons. The food and the people were wonderful and we were able to experience local flavor. Ephesus takes your breath away. The history and what is being uncovered is mind boggling. We feel that we have a wonderful new friend in a far away land.
