Sait was a well informed historian of religions, kind, punctual and respectful. The place could not be found without an experienced local guide. A rare gem to be discovered.

I was researching ancient civilizations and surprised to discover a specialist living in the location where many of them intersected. I wish I had the opportunity to take my students to these places. We should support tour guides who choose to introduce undiscovered gems over popular destinations. Thank you Mehmet Sait. 🏆
