Tour Reviews
  • Hayati

    Top notch personal tour that I ever experienced in my life. Thank you to our tour guide, Mr Ali Can. The Black Sea region offers from greenery view to historical and architectural heritage. Mr Ali Can, indeed is very knowledgeable about history, nice, well organised & prepared & courteous. My friend and I experienced all elements during our stay for this trip, from mountain view in Uzungol, tea plantation in Rize overlooking stunning view and next to river in Rize. We enjoyed all good food and delicacies. Since we’re female traveller, we felt safe and welcomed to this Black Sea Region (Uzungol-Rize-Trabzon). Thank you for allowing us to experience Black Sea Tour and even introduced us to local and your family. Worth every single penny spent and will recommend this personalised tour to everyone. Teşekkür Ederim!
