Abdullah, our private guide was phenomenal. He tailored the daily excursions to our needs and made every detail fascinating. We loved having lunch with him every day eating at local places; one place was better than the next. He was perfect!

Newport International set up an amazing and memorable tour. The guides were full of important cultural and historic information. They all spoke wonderful English. Great selection of places to see in Turkey. Both interesting and beautiful.
