Ibrahim was always quick to answer queries by phone and whatsapp which gave me peace of mind. I booked this tour for 5 people and from the beginning to the end it was a well organised tour. The pick up and drop off were reliable. The guide met us and greeted us at antalya airport he spoke German and English. He assisted with swift airport security and checkin which helps when you have a long day ahead and when airport staff don't speak fluent English. Guide gave us detailed info on the attractions. There were about 20 of us on the tour in total and he waited and was aware of each one of us. Very assertive and friendly. Had an informative day so much to see an learn in Istanbul a beautiful and vibrant city with great history. Only downfall i would say is that after 4pm tour dragged we were taken to a hotel where we could pay for a buffet. I felt this was a waste of 3 hours as once tour finished would like to have caught flight back to antalya. We got back to our resort at 12am had we caught an earlier flight and skipped buffet could have had dinner at airport or resort and could have arrived back at resort for 8pm. Other than that i felt this was a well planned tour very professional and feel very confident with booking through tours in alanya.
