Gulay was the best tour guide we had on our vacation. She was very knowledgeable about the history, culture and architecture of the sites we saw. Her appreciation for her subject matter was infectious. Her assistance with haggling at the bazaar saved us . A must do tour.

Hulya was very knowledgeable about her beautiful, exciting city. She knew the best times to arrive at each site to avoid the crowds. She went at our pace without hurrying us. When I expressed an interest in a certain type of souvenir, she took us right to the best shop in town for what I wanted. We really enjoyed our full day with her.

The guide was knowledgeable and friendly but focused most attention on one member of our group who wanted to spend the time shopping while the four other members of the group waited. Rather than indicate that it was meant to be a sight seeing event she accommodated the one members obsession with jewelry shops and actually suggested that we smile more while we we wasted our time.
