Testimonials

Smith in Shelton, CT

Selcuk is an amazing tour guide and person. He is so well educated and has a wonderful way of communicating. He has so many close connections to the people in the villages and is a very caring person. He taught us so much and in such a fun way. Selcuk is also very creative and a great problem solver!

Katty in Napa, CA

Selcuk, was our extraordinary guide who was a joy to be with and to learn from his vast knowledge of history and customs. He was definitely a high point in the tour.

Charles in Walnut Creek, CA

Selcuk was a great leader. He had surprises for us, kept our interest piqued, kept us entertained with a playful sense of humor. was very funny, caring and gave great perspectives of the history of Turkey, culture debunked a lot of myths and i felt we had a more intimate experience with the people of Turkey due to his connections. It seemed that the locals adored him and wanted to accommodate his to our benefit. He treated all of us with respect and tried hard to answer all of our questions and since our group was a mature audience we had a lot.
