Best tour guide ever!

Begu was an amazing tour guide. We got picked up straight from the airport and dropped off in time for our flight back. Begu took the time to talk to us about the tings we cared about. He made walking through Ephesus come to life. He made it feel like people like us lived there and gave us a glimpse of their lives! We had a private tour because we were the only ones that booked. Because if this our tour was formed to our interests. While we were in the car Begu took time to teach us about the culture of the Turkish people. I learned about wedding traditions and so much more! Thank you so much for an incredible day! Also our driver was fantastic!
