A very straight forward trip as described. The best part of this tour was our small group as we could navigate a bit faster compared to the large cruise excursion groups. The not so great part were the crowds at all three sites; it's difficult to get photos without people in the background. I also appreciated that the guide gave us the option to see carpet-making or visit a leather goods shop (as opposed to making it a part of the tour).

Our guide Emri was amazing. So much knowledge of the country & historical sites! Highly recommend this tour.

Our guide was amazing and it was so nice to travel with a smaller group than what the cruise ship offered. Pickup and moving around was very efficient. We seemed to always arrive places before the crowds and we really learned alot about the ruins.

We had a great time on this tour. The guide was very informative and friendly. We stopped at a local pottery shop and got a demonstration and got to view the hand crafted pieces. Absolutely beautiful pieces!!
