Emine was a delight as our guide! She explained the historical significance of all monuments in Istanbul and spoke excellent English. She recommended nice restaurants which was helpful for us as we are vegetarians!

Emine is perfect in English and is extremely knowledgeable from politics to religion, and tourism in turkey of course! She was our guide for 5 days actually. She is very flexible and arranged everything for us. Lunch, dinner, tickets, etc and scheduled everything for us according to our preferences. She is polite and diligent! She will get everything done as requested in a convenient and efficient way. You will not be disappointed!

I was referred to Emine by a mutual friend. I don't speak Turkish, but she speaks excellent English :) We chatted by phone and email about the things I wished to do and the sights I wished to see. When we met in the morning of the tour, she had all the necessary tickets ready for us. I'm an amateur photographer and she took me to places where I could get good shots. She also ran interference so I wasn't bothered by street vendors, especially going through the Grand Bazaar. That is worth a lot! In addition to being a wonderful tour guide, she was also a friendly and informative companion who could answer my questions about the social situation in Turkey. I will be returning to Istanbul in mid-April and hope that I will be able to engage Emine's services again :)

I took a day group tour with Emine where she made my first visit to Istanbul a memorable one, leaving me wanting to visit this magical city again! She greeted us with a smile and enthusiasm that set the tone for the day ahead. We visited all main tourist attractions, where she did a great job sharing her extensive knowledge of local history, answering all of our questions for each attraction visited. Emine also took us to some hidden gems best known to locals for us to experience the real Istanbul and taste some delicious Turkish dishes and delicacies. Very professional with good time management skills, whilst still being flexible and thoughtful, she went beyond her duties putting personal effort to accommodate individual group members’ requests for souvenir shopping and helped arrange evening activities for the group. I found this tour to be an excellent historical and cultural introduction to this amazing city, with Emine being a five star choice and best tour guide you would wish for; being good fun and with her easy going personality it felt more like spending the day with a friend.
