Hakan our guide was a wonderful person to be around from start to finish. We told him what we hoped to see and he showed us each sight complete with a verbal detailed history. We got to sample local food and tea and enjoyed his company so much that we caught up for dinner before we left Turkey. Have recommended him to all of our friends travelling soon. Simply ask and he will deliver! We only had a few short hours to sightsee and felt so grateful for a local like him showing us around.
