We were the only ones on this tour so we had personal attention. Our guide, Serhat, was very knowledgeable, friendly and spoke perfect English. He showed us and told us many interesting things. Our only slight criticism was that the tour ended in a carpet outlet, away from the Grand Bazaar, that we did not want or need and was a waste of everyones time.
