Cancu is a very sweet and professional guide. So lucky to get a private tour with her to know more about her beautiful country! She is clearly passionate about her work and provided us with tons of valuable information and adapted the tour, making this first experience for us a perfect one. ✨ Çok teşekkür ederim ✨

Cancu was such an amazing tour guide. We were just 2 people, but she still was so relaxed and informative about everything. She provided us with so much valuable information and we had the chance to ask a 1000 questions. She adapted to our preferences and made this experience just perfect.
