Neslihan was an amazing guide, we had a car with a driver who moved the car to where we would be walking. She adapted the tour to be able to see most of the sites in the old city as well as some more photo spots. Her experience and fun ways of explaining things were really nice, and her smile was continuous.

Neslihan is an excellent guide. She combines deep knowledge of the various historic sites and attractions, with a lot of additional insights and perspectives into everyday life in the city / country. Style-wise she constructs an extremely productive day, while also being extremely pleasant, responsive and adaptive to the interests of each family member. We would highly recommend her to any group or individual seeking to experience and understand this great city.

We recently had the good fortune to have Neslihan as our guide for two days last week in Istanbul. She was absolutely excellent - arriving on time, very practical with her advice, full of interesting facts, both historical and about modern day Turkey and we covered a lot of variety and contrasting areas in our two tours. She was fun to be with, a good sense of humour and really had all the facts and figures at her finger tips. We could not recommend her highly enough. Jeremy and Philippa Warren

Neslihan was brilliant. Perfect English, chatty, engaging, intelligent, helpful and informed. She quickly understood what we wanted and tailored the half day round our needs. Very glad we did it at the beginning of our weekend, as we subsequently had an understanding of Istanbul/ Constantinople history and also knew how to use the Metro. Thoroughly recommended.

Spending the day with Neslihan was like spending the day with an old friend. Coordinating with her was very easy, she was very intelligent and well-spoken, charming and has a great sense of humor. She was very flexible with our schedule and we were sad when we had to depart at the end of the day. We would recommend Neslihan to all of our friends and would choose her for another tour when we find ourselves back in Istanbul. Tesekkurler, Neslihan! - Mike & Cristina

We had a private day tour of Istanbul with Neslihan, she happily worked within requests and added many other places we would never have found ourselves. It was like having a friend take us around this vast city and we had an extremely enjoyable day. She chose fantastic places to eat and drink and helped us navigate public transport ,we would never have been brave enough to tackle buses ourselves! Skipping queues at attractions was fantastic and she always knew the right times to visit. Highly recommend.

She met us at the airport and went straight to Sultanahmet, Hagia Sophia, Cistern and Topkapi Palace where she explained the history of each places and included her own personal insights. She even took our pictures so we have souvenirs of the area. Neslihan took us to the Egyptian bazaar as well for souvenirs before heading to the airport. Great tour!!

In our 3 1/2 hours with her (including transport) we managed to see so much of the city plus she even helped me track down a Harry Potter book for my international collection!

It was my last day, and I asked her to plan the day upon my "wishes" to see...things I may have missed on the other tours, but most of all I wanted to see Istanbul through HER EYES. We went like the locals on bus, tram and walking where tourists often were far and few. We bought items along the way and had our breakfast where I was the only tourist!. Neslhan packed in a full day...8 hours....and I feel I got more than my money worth. .

She was most gracious with our indecision. She is a wonderful guide and a beautiful person inside & out. WE eventually decided that it was safer to go to the historic sights with a small group (5) than with the ship and are very glad we did.

We understand a lot more about Istanbul now -- Neslihan's tour of the old city was thorough, informative, and she was an absolutely charming and well-informed guide. She was able to accommodate our (sometimes idiosyncratic) interests, including finding where in the grand bazaar we could buy vintage paperbacks with interesting covers!

Neslihan is such a fun guide. I learned much about Istanbul and Turkey in a very short time. It was enriching to understand the intricacies of Turkish ceramic arts and rug making, observing amazingly beautiful specimens of each in the process. Taking in the architectural jewels of the Old City was also amazing. I left saturated with a better understanding of the culture and some unique souvenirs to include Turkish Delight.

Neslihan is a gem. We had the opportunity to have her a our guide while visiting Istanbul. Her knowledge of history, archeology and her culture were invaluable as she guided us through the city. Neslihan not only took us to visit the highlights, but also to places not commonly seen by visitors and, with a party of five, that was a challenge but she delivered with professionalism, charisma and a smile. If you are visiting the city and need a guide, hire the best and Neslihan is the best!

Her unique touch combined with the beauty of Istanbul left me wanting the tour not to end. Her candid answers to all my questions was refreshing and appreciated... Must book her as your guide if you want the best experience!

Neslihan was wonderful!!!! She is extremely knowledgeable, fun, talkative and great with kids! Perfect and easy to follow English. We had a great day touring the old city with her, she took care of everything and was very open to our requests. Our son of 9 adored her-- Neslihan was able to tell stories in a way that kept him interested and energetic through the whole tour. Absolutely recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to be your guide.It was my first tour from here. I am glad to hear that you had a great time.
