Nur was friendly, kind and very informative. We didn't have to have a guide through the museum, but it was certainly helpful & fun. We talked and walked, and didn't have to READ everything. Nur got to know everyone individually and made the tour sort of special for each person. Great job!

SMITHSONIAN National History Tour!! Our tour guide Nur MADE the tour. The knowledge and the way he made a genuine effort to connect with each participant was truly one of a kind. I felt so grateful to have had the opportunity to explore the museum with someone so well versed. Cool dude, definitely recommend requested him!
