Izmir, IZMIR, Turkey

Hello, my name is Emre and originally from Izmir.

I live with my colleague and wife Nesrin and our little son Tuna. Tour guiding has been our full-time job for last ten years. We both have BA degree on tour guiding and travel management. I usually take private excursions with small groups of Americans from cruise ships. I can pick you up either from the city port or airport by a confortable van and after the tour I can drop you off the harbour.
You'll have real local Turkish food at local restaurants or around villages in my tours. We can go for a wine taste or have our lunch at a nice winery with good selection of dry wines together.
Ephesus area is so rich with history like the other parts of Turkey.
Even if you are not very interested in ancient Roman history, we can still find something interesting to see and spend good time in the area. But I am sure you'll enjoy your time in Ephesus city with my guiding!
PS. Regaring to Turkish laws, all driving tours in Turkey must be given by a registered A class Turkish travel agency. As one of the official Turkish tour guide of TBL, I quarantee that all my tours are being operated through a registered A class travel agency.

Look forward to meeting you.
Best wishes.

A Recent Review of this guide

Emre took us on an Ephesus tour. He is the best! He has grown up in the area so knows the best restaurants and people. Our tour of Ephesus was fascinating and informative. He also followed up with recommendations via texts to make sure we enjoyed the rest of our time in Izmir area.
