Hakan was an excellent guide for our family (kids 18, 16, 12). We flew from Istanbul to Izmir for the day, arriving 8 am, departing 9 pm. Hakan had arranged for a new, air-conditioned Mercedes van and driver for all of our transportation (at an extra fee, clearly communicated beforehand). We saw all the main sights, plus because we had so much extra time, we also visited the carpet and ceramic factories. We still had extra time, and waited a couple hours at the airport before our flight departed.
