FABULOUS DAY IN EPHESUS AND SIRINCE WITH TUGRUL!!!!
Reviewed October 1, 2015
My husband and I had the perfect day with Tugrul! Our private tour began when he met us as we disembarked our cruise ship for a day of ruins in Ephesus and a visit to the village of Sirince. We have previously visited these sights with a different private tour company 18 months ago, and while we had a good day then, our experience with Tugrul was far superior. He is a warm, gentle soul with a wealth of information. He knows every little detail about Ephesus and his English is perfect, perfect, perfect! We is extremely gracious and his passion for sharing his country with us was crystal clear. He really wanted us to have a great day, and we did! One of the things that we really enjoy doing when we travel is to get a sense of daily life in the locale we are visiting. I had mentioned this to Tugrul in emails preparing for our tour, and he definitely delivered. When he walked with us through Sirince, he made sure that we had personal interactions with the people who lived there. We met a young woman baking bread in an outdoor oven. Tugrul purchased a loaf to take home to his wife, but he made sure that we sampled a taste first. The bread was divine! Then, we visited a restaurant, where we met the "best" chef in Sirince to see what was being prepared for the evening. Of course that came with a taste, too. Lastly, we met an elderly woman with the most expressive face and radiant blue eyes. She was lovely, and Tugrul engaged her in conversation in the kindest, sweetest way. By the end of our visit, we really felt like we experienced daily life with the locals. At the end of our tour, Tugrul returned us to the cruise ship, but in about 10 or 15 minutes, I realized that I had left my "favorite" hat in his car. I thought I'd never see it again. We called Tugrul to see if he was still nearby. Although he had traveled a distance from the ship already, he immediately turned around to bring my hat to me. Tugrul is a real gentleman, and HE is the reason that your day at Ephesus and Sirince was so magical. Thank you, Tugrul, for making magical memories for us! Don't miss out - book Tugrul for your tour in Kusadasi! You will be glad you did!
