Recep (Reggie) our tour guide made an amazing tour all the more amazing! He shared his extraordinary knowledge of Turkey's history, both modern and ancient, in a way that was accessible to all participants: well paced, informative and witty. He is a great story teller, bringing to life characters of legend and history and able to place them in the contexts of the landscapes we were passing through and the historic sights we visited.

Reggie is an excellent people manager. He invited us to travel with open minds and open hearts, and when this became a difficulty for some participants, he handled the situation quietly and discreetly. We enjoyed his sense of humour and his professional care for us as 'his' group.

We felt privileged to travel with Reggie and would recommend him as a top tour guide on a top tour. ”

I was fortunate enough to have Reggie Aydin as my tour guide for this trip, and he was simply exceptional. I have never met someone so passionate about their work, their country, and their history. Every day, Reggie brought a professional enthusiasm to sites we know he had seen hundreds of times, and yet he still brought them alive for us.

Reggie’s subject knowledge was simply awe-inspiring too. To have someone so highly educated guiding us around such fascinating sites was an absolute honour. That, coupled with his warm and patient personality truly made the tour something special.

It is a credit to On the Go to have guides that are this outstanding. I have spoken very highly of my experiences since returning home and will continue to do so. ”  

Laura Shevlin • Submitted 21 Jan 2019

We were very impressed with this comprehensive tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and helpful. At Gallipoli he took a group photo and said he would forward it to us but we have not seen it yet. The hotels were great, the shopping opportunities well planned, the scenery was beyond what I had imagined. The bus was comfortable and the driver very competent. Kemal made the history come alive. Thank you for an unforgettable experience.”
