Our third and final day with Emre as a tour guide included a tour of the Dolmahahce Palace and a cruise on the Bosphorous River. Emre made sure that we saw so many interesting mosques, artwork and monuments during our time in Istanbul. He shared with us his extensive knowledge of Istanbul and its many beautiful sights in an extremely informative and entertaining way. Our group, ages 15 to 65, enjoyed tremendously our time in Istanbul with Emre as our tour guide. Diana B., USA

Emre was a wonderful tour guide for us during our time in Istanbul. Our group, ages 15 to 65, were fortunate to have Emre as our guide for the three days we were in Istanbul. He shared with us so much history, knowledge and love of Istanbul. Our walking tour the first day included Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazaar and the Spice Market. Our tour with Emre made a visit to all of these sites so much more memorable. Thank you Emre. Diana B., USA

Emre gave me a wonderful private tour through Istanbul. He was on-time, welcoming, and attentive to my interests. We made our way through everything on my list, including the shopping I wanted to do. After asking for my preference, Emre took me to a fantastic local restaurant for lunch. He was also willing to give advice for my tour on my own the next day. I learned a lot about the history of Istanbul and Turkey, life in Turkey today, and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I would highly recommend Emre!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I also enjoyed of the time with you,Leslie. Hope to see you again with your family nest time. Best wishes. Emre

Emre took my family of four on a 7 hour tour of the Sultanahmet area of Istanbul and did a great job. Emre's english is very good and his knowledge of Istanbul and Turkey are excellent. We toured the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern and Topkapi place. I would highly recommend Emre for any tours you might want to do in Istanbul.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much,Danold. Hope to see you back in Turkey for a longer trip. Best

Emre is an excellent tour guide. Knowledgeable, personal, very witty and open to share and answer our many questions. Spending the day with Emre is the way to go, time and money well spent. Great tour and would recommend him to all our friends and to all those who want to learn about istanbul and what this great city has to offer. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your compliments,Patty.All the best.
We were met at the hotel by Emre and treated to very special day in Istanbul. He knew my husband was a photographer and through the day we experienced so much of the colour , history and sights of this amazing city. We had been here before so had requested a look at Emre's city from his eyes. We got all of that and more. Thank you for a fabulous day Emre.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice words about me.I hope you'll enjoy your time in the blue cruise in Turkey.Best wishes

The tour was great! I would suggest to do some research ahead of time so you have an idea of what you would like to see. We went to a palace (for an extra 25€ each) and it was not to our taste. I would much rather have walked the city and saw the neighborhoods for free instead. Emre was great. He paid for us to use the tram, and knew more about the city than anyone I could imagine. He took us to a local restaurant to get the Turkish feel. He also helped us get some suviners.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your excellent reviews, Scott. Explore the rest of the world now. All the best for you.

What a wonderful day in Istanbul! Emre joined us promptly at 9:00 at our hotel and led us through a thoroughly enjoyable day in the Sultanahmet region of the Old City, taking our leave shortly after 5:30 that afternoon. While he never taxed us beyond our comfort level, he made sure to expose us to a number of the best sights, shared a wonderful lunch with us, and helped us to shop wisely in the Grand Bazaar. Gracious and knowledgeable, Emre was an ideal guide. Thanks so much!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for a great feed back, Daniel. I am so pleased that your son also enjoyed of this tour with me. Especially in Hagia Sophia. Best wishes to all your family.

Emre was an extremely professional and knowledgable guide. He possesses an thorough insight into the history and culture of Istanbul and showed me so many exciting and fascinating aspects of the city that I would not have received otherwise. I would highly recommend Emre to anyone wishing to discover all the charm and character that Istanbul has to offer. His English is perfect and he is very generous with his time and his expertise.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really enjoyed with the interesting tour route that we took together.Take care in the Himalayas and turn back to Canada in safe.Best wishes.
Emre is a very personal individual who provided our group of 4 ladies with interesting information about Istanbul, the people of the past and present. His enthusiasm about Istanbul kept our tour interesting the entire time. He exceeded our expectations & even assisted us with next day plans (on our own), took us to a reputable rug dealer when asked, got us a reservation for a restaurant with a tremendous view and food and didn't hesitate extending his time with us. Hire Emre & you won't be disappointed
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Christy, Thank you so much for the great comment. I really enjoyed of the day spending with you. If you visit Turkey again, I'd be very happy with being your guide. Best wishes for you all. Emre

Emre was superb. I spent the day with him, alone. He was great company and more importantly, he figured out my interests in seeing Istanbul, then we move very quickly through the day, covering lots of ground and seeing many things. The entire time, Emre kept me informed with his considerable store of knowledge. I was amazed by how much I experienced in one day and will always look back to the utilization of Emre as an excellent investment. Thank you!!
