TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however, they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured. 
 
CLIMATE & AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
Istanbul
Temperatures in May/June and September/October are between 22 and 30°C. January/December has an average temperature of around 15°C.
 
Cappadocia
Cappadocia has a continental climate characterised by dry summers and sometimes snowy winters. Rainfall is sparse and the region is largely semi-arid to arid. There is a sharp difference in the temperature between day and night and it is not uncommon to have cold nights interspersed with hot days.
 
Kusadasi
There are two main seasons in Kusadasi: the cold season and the hot season, which basically correlate with winter and summer in other parts of Europe. The shoulder seasons, autumn and spring, experience weather patterns that are a mix of both the cold and warm seasons.
