Selcuk was truly outstanding. He was very knowledgeable, very well organized, exceptionally entertaining and friendly.

We appreciate the pride he feels in his country, and our trip will always be very special because of having Selcuk as our tour guide.

John in Boise, ID

Selcuk was an exceptional guide. He has all the necessary tools, has a great sense of humor and is very well versed on Turkey's history. It was always apparent that he loves his country I would go on any tour if I learned Selcuk was to be the guide!

Arnon in San Francisco, CA

Appreciated Selcuk's knowledge about the history and the historic cultures of Turkey. He was very accessible, mingled with the entire group and answered our questions or got the answers. Very educational! He suggested the local foods to try, which contributed to a memorable experience of local cuisine.

Cesar in La Habra, CA

Ayse was well informed with every aspect of Turkish culture, including local customs and national movements. I felt that my time spend with her was invaluable; she is a true teacher who only enhanced the progress of our trip every step of the way. I would definitely like to have someone like Ayse along for every Turkish trip I take.
