Truthfull, honest and objective , Salih is born to teach or to guide, which is the same in outcomes. His narrative is calming yet exciting, responding to comments and questions, engaging each and every guest in an almost real life experience. In 60 minutes you get the panoramic view, the sounds, the taste, the smell and the past of the place! Hospitality, respect for all people and kindness, all in a man's voice and smile. Wish Turkey had more people like Salih.
