We just loved this 10 days private tour of the best sight of Turkey which was made extra special by our guide. He was very knowledgeable and imparted this knowledge in an interesting way. He added small extras to the tour to make sure we saw the real Turkey, not always stopping at the tourist lunch spots but using local places. At no time did we feel rushed but he managed to maintain a pace to the tour that was appropriate to the group.
