    Enjoyed all the sight seeing with a knowledgeable guide passionate about religious history who spoke great English. My favorite was the Saleme Monastery and the underground city of Derinkuyu. I realized afterwards that I could have booked the same tour for 60% of the cost I paid to get your guide.

    Memet our guide was amazing. Super knowledgeable, nothing was too much trouble and a great personality to match. Overheard some other guides throughout the day who didn’t go into half as much detail as Memet, which really made the day along with his super friendly personality. Well organised, full day of great stops and a great insight into the history of the area.

    Amazing tour full of culture and adventures.

    The activity was incredible, a lot of very impressive places to see. The organisation was perfect and also the timing of every touristic point. The tour guides are so friendly and full of knowledge, also are very patients. This was our second time with Ilknur and as the last time was amazing.
