My tour was very fortunate as we had a very good tour guide named Ali. He was brilliant. He had incredible knowledge and delivered it with clarity and good humour. All guides in Turkey have to do a university course, tour every major site within Turkey to be fully conversant with the sites and history of Turkey before they can become a guide.
