I live with my colleague and wife Nesrin and our two sons. Tour guiding has been our full-time job for last fifteen years. After taking my BA degree on tour guiding and travel management I started to give private tours for small groups of Americans especially from the cruise ships. I can pick you up either from the city port or airport by a comfortable van or by our car.
You can taste the real Turkish food at local restaurants or around villages in my tours. If you intetest we can go for a wine taste or have our lunch at a nice winery with good selection of dry wines nearby Ephesus.
Ephesus area is very rich with Roman history like the other parts of Turkey. I can easily share my historical background with you in Ephesus especially about ancient Roman life. We can go for Pamukkale, Hierapolis tour which is very important for Christianity and one of the seven churches of revelation called Laeodikea is just nearby. Or you can discover Izmir city and environs like Pergamon Bergama town in a private tour by car. If you stay in Izmir city, you can enjoy every single day and fulfill with a day trip with me.
Just let me show you around in a local Turkish way. Lots of fun, history, learning and discovery about Turkish culture. It will be a real experience for you with learning so many things about this area.
Let me know about your intended tour plans, places, needs and interests. Any kind of your questions about our area are most welcome. I'll response your questions quickly and easily customize a tour itinerary for you.
Hope to meeting you soon.
A Recent Review of this guide
We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Emre! He was very eager to show us the sights in Ephesus and we had a wonderful luncheon at the winery. We both remarked that we would like to return to Turkey some day and we will be sure to look for Emre to guide us along the way. Obviously. we highly recommend him!
