We are a family of 5. We parents with 3 of our boys visiting from Florida. We booked a 2 day tour. Our tour guide Emel arrived right on time to pick us up both days from our hotel. She was so nice and pleasant. For two days she took us around and showed us all the major attractions, shopping places, food places and have a great idea about Turkey, it’s history and culture. She was very knowledgeable and professional. Our kids liked her very much and enjoyed the long two days. We are happy that we booked these tours with Viator. We highly recommend the service and we appreciate our tour guide Emel. Thanks
