Our docent's knowledge and enthusiasm for architecture and history made the tour much mor fun. However, although he was extremely qualified to lead the walk, and very skilled at sharing his knowledge, we feel docents should be professionally licensed, as seems to be required in Turkey, so as to avoid embarrassment for your clients.
The docent was extremely well informed, entertaining, and pleasant. I would definitely be interested in a tour guided by him, or a longer tour with him. Highly recommended!
Everything worked. Group size of 4 was fantastic, Umit was an exceptional teacher and was so well organized to get the absolute maximum out of the 3 hours while keeping a lovely pace that allowed everyone to be fully engaged. His vast knowlege and obvious commitment to the subject allowed him to provide the kind of conceptual framework that remains with you - not just a bunch of facts you forget. He is a great communicator.
