We booked our tour through the Travelstore Turkey. Everything was taken care of with a few glitches (driver went to wrong hotel to pick us up, and on way back they booked us a late night flight and we had to wait at airport for 3 hours) Our guide for the tour was fantastic, he was very informative and we learned a lot. It did not feel like we were with a stranger, he felt like family from the start. He was with Mislina Travel and his name is Yavuz Morgul. He spent time answering all our questions as well as teaching us on the Turkish culture. At each of the churches he read John's letter and provided some interpretations according to the culture at that time. Highly recommend it to those interested in knowing the beginnings of the Christian Church.
