Really outstanding! Our guide Filiz was well prepared, clear, and very engaging. She was one of our best guides during all our tours so far. We learned a lot and had so much fun as she took us on a mini tour around Kusadasi too. The driver was also very professional and spoke English. During Lunch time she asked what we prefer and went all the way when we said we have been craving for some Indian food. Took us to the best restaurant in Kusadasi. I recommend if you’re traveling in a group to take this private tour as you cab really customize it however you want based on availability and feasibility of course, but highly recommend.

Really outstanding! Our guide was well prepared, clear, and very engaging. He was our best guide during our two week stay. He has deep historical knowledge and really wove together many centuries of history. We learned a lot and had fun. The driver was also professional and spoke English. Our van was super comfy, too
