Fantastic day adapted to their own interests. Professional explanation of every item we encountered during our visit. Stops to drink if kids got thirsty, real custom made. Wonderful relaxing and educational day.

Everything went great with the private taxi from Izmir airport to the hotel. Customer service was also super helpful and did everything to our satisfaction. I can only recommend.

Like being back in time

A must see site that was all the better due to our excellent guide Kai who was both entertaining, knowledgeable and well organised. The discount through booking.com was nice too.
