This is a note to express our appreciation for the work of our tour guide in Turkey, Ozcan Alkan. We just completed a three week tour of Greece and Turkey. We booked our tour through Passports Travel and I believe they subcontracted the Turkey part of the tour to Karavan.
Our Turkey guide was Ozcan Alkan. He was an exceptional guide, very professional, extremely knowledgeable, with excellent English, and was very well liked by everyone on the tour. Ozcan was with us for 12 days (July 21stto August 1st). He was always attentive to our needs, even offering additional options as we traveled. He was clearly very knowledgeable of the areas we traveled. He knew what restaurants we would enjoy for lunch and paid attention to frequent rest stops for the older ones in the tour group. His early morning bus commentary on Turkey was looked forward to by everyone. His detailed knowledge of the historical sites we visited and his exceptional overall knowledge of Turkish and regional history continually amazed us.
I know I speak for everyone on the tour that we indeed felt fortunate to have Ozcan as our guide and would highly recommend him to anyone visiting Turkey.

Thank you for the wonderful time we had in Turkey! It was a great trip and you and the love of your country that you shared made it so interesting - even to those of us who are not antiquity nuts! David who is found your information and knowledge insightful and rewarding.
The Bosphorous boat cruise was nice but as a group we missed your presence and your advice regarding what we wew seeing. No commentary on the boat!

Thanks for the card and I really enjoyed that trip and I had a lot of fun. We traveled all over and good hiking, including the best of it, history and your fantastic knowledge about it help a lot. I really appreciated having you as guide and also without forgetting you good sense of humor.
