Our tour guide, Ilker Olccaydu, made this excursion the best one we had for this vacation at any of our ports. He reached out to me before arriving at the port of Kusadasi and ensured me that he would be waiting for us upon arrival, which true to his word, he was standing at the entrance door with a Big smile. His personality put us all at ease and we felt completely safe and secure with him at our side. He had such a rapport with all the staff at each location we visited as they joked amongst themselves. We were feeling like family by the end of the tour. This tour guide was one of the best I have had in the 40 years I have been traveling. He is a great ambassador for his country and we are now discussing on revisiting in the near future.
