We had a great time on our tour! Our guide, Mustafa, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We saw so much more in a short amount of time than we ever would have been able to on our own, and Mustafa had very interesting stories to share about everything we saw. The lines at all of the major sites were really long and we would have been waiting for hours, but going with a tour guide allows you to skip the lines and just enjoy the attractions.
