The guide on this trip was an enthusiast regarding the ancient sites and very knowledgeable. I think this greatly added to the trip and even those less interested in the history appreciated his humour and knowledge of the area. He was obviously very popular with the people we met on route so I think we were very lucky. I was impressed by the way Diane went out of her way to be helpful both as assistant to the guide Maurice in some more mundane tasks and to members of the group. We have had some excellent leaders in the past but Maurice must rank with the best. He also gave us useful information on things to do in Antalya after the KE package was over.
I really enjoyed the trip with the historical sites really adding to the trek experience. Trek graded correctly and within capability of all in group. I would like to say that Diane from KE really contributed with her enthusiasm and willingness to help. I am sure we all enjoyed having her along.

It's always been a smooth experience registering for trips with KE. information is clear and everyone is very helpful.
Hotels were pensions in villages and they were better than I expected. Very comfortable and had all the amenties we needed, beds and private showers and toilets. Some were set in beautiful areas. This is where the excellent rating applies.
Ismet is obviously well respected in the villages and at the places where we spent the night. She was very attentive to the group needs and was very professional with the local villagers. The trip went off without a hitch. She had a wealth of information about Turkey and the different Empires, we learned a lot about modern day Turkey as well. Her English is impeccable and her sense of humour delightful.
