To Whom It May Concern:
I write this letter in enthusiastic endorsement of Mutlu Deveci’s skills as a professional guide and tour operator. I had the pleasure of traveling through Turkey for two weeks with Mutlu in August 2010. This was my first trip to Turkey, and—largely thanks to Mutlu’s expert guidance—I eagerly look forward to my next visit to that fascinating country.
Right from the start, Mutlu shone for his profound knowledge of Turkish history, culture, and politics, no less for his formidable energy and organizational abilities. We were a diverse group ranging widely in age, profession, and interest, and Mutlu masterfully made us all feel immediately at home in Turkey. He was absolutely professional throughout, as well as unfailingly kind, friendly, patient, and generous with his time and expertise. Whether organizing an array of afternoon expeditions in light of our group’s wide variety of interests, guiding us through the stunning scenery of Cappadocia or Ephesus, thrashing us at backgammon or complex Turkish card games, or welcoming us all into his family summer home, Mutlu quickly became friend as well as guide.
I have traveled widely throughout the world, and Turkey immediately struck me as a place where the short-term, first-time visitor might easily encounter any range of difficulties. Mutlu went out of his way to ensure that we were treated fairly by everyone. If there were any problems with transportation, lodging, or other arrangements, we certainly never learned of them. We were simply free to enjoy thoroughly each and every day, greatly enhanced by Mutlu’s guidance and expertise.
Mutlu Deveci is, in short, an excellent guide and tour operator, and I recommend him to you with enthusiasm.
