"Iris was truly an amazing teacher, entertainer and perfect hostess. She has the amazing ability to keep you captivated with detailed information for long periods of time. I enjoyed her compassionate way of sharing her life experiences in Turkey. She really makes you feel like you know her culture, as well as her. She is also so interested in getting to know her group. She was always friendly, approachable, funny and oh, so capable."

"The guide on any tour that I take in the future will pale in comparison to Sidar. It was obvious that he loves his country and enjoyed showing it to us and introducing us to people he knows in the villages. His knowledge of history, art, religion and architecture is incredible. His excitement in sharing this with us was contagious. I do not know whether other tour groups have come together like ours did; but if Sidar had suggested continuing on the road for another week, we all would have followed him without hesitation."
— Maureen in Long Beach, CA
"Lale is a wonderful guide! She has a wealth of knowledge about Turkey, and it's evident that she loves her country very much! I was amazed at the vast information she has on so many subjects: history, art, politics, customs, Turkish food, current events, world history, etc. and she presents it all with such passion. Lale took opportunities of impromptu moments, such as the dancers performing for us in the street one night and the picture moment with the sheep herder's children. Those are the kinds of unique experiences that really make a tour fun."
— Laura in Olympia, WA
"We saw wonderful sights. But overall, I came home impressed with how our guide helped me to feel his pride in his country. Sidar helped me to understand the country's religious beliefs and the culture. I got so much more than just 'seeing the sights.' I got a look into Sidar's country, his culture and his modern life. I am very appreciative of having the opportunity to learn from him."
