We are a family traveling in 5, including 3 young children. We went to Cappadocia in Dec 2019, and we had 2 days private tour with Zeki. We had Central Cappadocia Tour on Dec 2, 2019 with him. He is a really very good guide and he can speaks very good English. We understand him well and he is very patient with us, even though we have young children and the children asked him lots of questions. We fully recommend his tour if you visit to Cappadocia. Thank you Zeki.

We are family of 5 including 3 young kids traveling with Zeki for the South Cappadocia Tour on Dec 1 2019. He was a very nice guide. He is very informative and very knowledgeable. He is very patient with the kids too. When i just booked the tour with him, I wrote to him by email and he replied me very quickly and gave me a lot of good advice. We would like to recommend his service for the private tour in Cappadocia.

If you are looking for a guide with a deep knowledge of history and culture, Zeki is your man. He allows you to go at your own pace and will give you as much information as you want. I would highly recommend him as a guide to people visiting the area.

We were very fortunate to have Zeki as a guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about history and religion and gave proper context to what we were seeing. His many years of experience were helpful in navigating the usual crowded sights with great ease. Zeki's sense of humor and personal stories were icing on the cake. Would highly recommend.

Wonderful experience with Zeki. Extremely knowledgeable about the history and helped us understand the the local culture. He is very accommodating and personalized the tour for us. My daughter loved the pottery tour and demonstration and was able to try her hand at molding. My wife is vegetarian, and after the tour he took time to find the right restaurant and even helped us with our order before leaving us. We are looking forward to our 2nd day with him tomorrow!

My wife and I had a blast with Zeki. We needed a highly personalized tour along with an airport drop off in the same car. Everything was arranged as planned and executed perfectly. We also wanted to go carpet and pottery shopping at authentic places and get a taste of the best local cuisine. All of this was seamlessly integrated into a full day of sightseeing as well. I have no hesitation recommending Zeki and in fact will try to use him for my next tour in other places of Turkey.

Zeki is very knowledgeable and has many entertaining stories. He is willing to tailor the tour to your interests, and even changed our itinerary on the fly to accommodate our preferences. Zeki arranged a private van for our day, and coordinated airport transfer afterwards, which was supremely helpful! Wonderful time in Cappadocia with Zeki!

My friend and I decided to do a 2-day private tour with Zeki out of the 3 days in Cappadocia. He's very knowledgeable, professional, flexible and has a good sense of humour. With his specialties being history & religion, we learned a lot about Cappadocia. He also helped us book the sunset horseback riding tour, skipped places we didn't want to go to and took us to places we'd rather go instead. We felt lost without him on our last day in Cappadocia :) Thank you Zeki, we'll be back again for the balloons!

We had a great day and a great tour with Zeki ! His great knowledge of history and of religions in particular were of great value for us! And the most important thing : Zeki is very patient, flexibel and able to fulfill all your touring wishes ! We wanted ballooning, see a lot, go to the derwish dancers. And everything just in one day! Zeki was able to organize everything! And he assisted us also for the hotel, airport transfer, taxi and lots of other subjects!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karin, Thank you so very much for your kind words.It means a lot coming from you. Although it was only for 1 day; we had so much fun and adventure ! Please tell my best wishes to Thomas . Hope to see you again some day. :-)

We used Zeki for two full day tours of Cappadocia. He was very quick in responding to my queries. He also helped arrange for airport pickup and drop off. Zeki is familiar with the history of the region. He tailored the tours to our needs and was accommodating. Since English is not his native language, his explanations can sometimes be long winded. Also, he was always very factual, which in itself is good, but to make the experience more enjoyable a few anecdotal stories can spice up the discourse.
