Hakan, was the perfect tour guide. There were five in our party and never having been to Turkey before he was perfect. He knew the best time to see the best sights so there were no long lines, At the Virgins Mary's home we were the only people there late in the day, we could spend as much time as we wanted. A great experience I would reccommend Haken to anyone going to Turkey who wants to learn and see alot about the area.
