The reviews are correct, Christine and Mehmet are wonderful people and very easy to work with. We started our Turkey adventure in Izmir and I contacted Christine via email to book the tour, which was easy. We ended up selecting the full day tour and were excited when we arrived to find it would just be us and another couple. Christine and Mehmet greeted us with complimentary water and a good kickoff speech. Unfortunately, they handed us off to a different guide that they had hired. The guide was extremely nice and we had a good tour, but he wasn't a very good tour guide. While he was extremely knowledgable, he wasn't very engaging and it was like he was listing the facts off a bulleted list. If I wanted just the facts, I would of gone with a guide book and read the various signs. I'm paying to be told the stories behind what I'm seeing. Again, the guide was extremely nice and we enjoyed his company, but that's not what I paid for. We provided the feedback to Christine and Mehmet after the tour via their suggestion form, and I have no doubt that they'll work to insure they have better guides next time. We paid to get driven around and sell all of the sites in Selcuk, but this time around, it was definitely a no frills tour.
