    The Black Sea Region of Turkey is simply stunning! This tour gives you the opportunity to see and experience the hidden gems of this area that you wouldn’t be able to find on your own. I was able to take this tour as a private tour and Alican was extremely helpful in putting together a tour that suited me and all of the places I wanted to see. Even once I was on the tour, they were extremely flexible and were very happy to change the schedule to suit me. One of the absolute highlights of my trip wasn’t even on the original itinerary – I was welcomed into Alican and Oguzhan’s (my driver) family home for a village experience that I will never forget. This family has a heart and soul of pure GOLD! I was humbled by their kindness and generosity. My guide Veysel also took me to his village to see his family and pick hazelnuts and fruit from his own garden! His generosity and care for me throughout this tour was heartwarming. I am very grateful to have been able to tour the Black Sea Region with this company and to learn all about the Turkish culture! Please make sure you have the Pokut visit included in your Black Sea Itinerary! This is an absolute MUST SEE! Not only are you going to experience the most amazing landscape (you literally feel like you are on top of the world), you are also going to stay at the cutest hotel with the most welcoming and friendly owners who will bend over backwards to make sure your stay is memorable!
    Please book this tour – fantastic hand picked destinations and the most amazing people you will ever meet!

    Alican, our tour guide, was a gift. He is helpful, kind, attentive, well-organized, and is genuinely interested in making your time there the best it can be. He clearly know, loves, and understands his country, and he wants to share it with you …its people, its architecture and art, culture, delicious food, incredible history, and geography … the cool caves, lush green hillside, walking around the beautiful lake, driving up that mountain to the summer camp to spend time with lovely people … everything he arranges is with purpose. He knows your time there is short, and he wants it to be time well-spent. We even met his family at their home where we were well-fed with delicious food, spent a lovely evening being warmed by their hospitality, and left with a bag of fresh fruit.
    Alican is knowledgeable, well-spoken, and excellent at passing along information … he’s like your favourite teacher in school. He will have a plan of what he wants you to see but will also accommodate your interests and needs. It was not only an excellent trip, it was a great time. You should go. With Alican.
