The experience with Osman was amazing. It was a great value for money. I learnt so many things and Osman was really passionate when explaining the history behind the ruins, which made the experience even more fun. He was a great story teller. Before the experience, Osman reached out to me to ask which snacks and drinks I would like, as well as bringing along water to the trip. I thought this was a very caring and thoughtful gesture. He also brought along his camera which takes amazing pictures, and offered to take photos of me in the beautiful landscape. He will be sending these out to me. I really appreciated this as the quality was much better than my phone. Social distancing was also in place, and he made sure to adhere to COVID safety measures. I had a great time during this experience and I couldn’t recommend it enough. Osman was a great guide and it was an honour to be his first guest. :)
