Elcin is the best tour guide ever!
Elcin was amazing. She was very professional and attentive to my needs. I also had my nine year old daughter with me and Elcin was great at making sure my daughter was comfortable as well. She took us to many places that weren't mentioned in the tour and the extra stops were a great bonus and gave the package much added value. I would definitely book this again with Elcin. I would also consider hiring her as a private tour guide for a few days. She took us to the best place to eat at the weaving school. It was certainly the highlight of our trip. We can't thank Elcin enough. She is like my God - AWESOME!
A private tour for great value. The pre-tour communication was excellent. The pick-up at my hotel was as directed and spot on for promptness. The driver was friendly and courteous and drove professionally. The guide was outstanding. A anthropology PhD candidate working for an archeology museum spent the day sharing her extensive knowledge of the subject - Ephesus and did it with such enthusiasm as to keep me interested throughout. I recommend thismtour to everyone. It was great value for the money.
I had a most wonderful day.
