We had a fabulous time! Cemaliye is the best guide we've ever had! My husband and I have traveled the globe and she is undoubtedly the most knowledgeable, professional and kindest tour guide we've ever had! I'm so happy we chose Tours by Locals.

In Northern Cyprus we spent our free day with Cemalye to visit places our organised tour did not cover. With excellent English, she was knowledgeable, warm, kind and considerate, always giving us options of things to do. It was a great insight into the history, life and people of Northern Cyprus. The whole experience was magical, like a day out with a special friend not just a guide. We were so pleased to have met her and we strongly recommend her as a guide - we are sure you will not be disappointed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Roy,  Primarily , I would like to thank you very much for taking your precious time giving me a perfect rating and for recommending my tours to other travelers. I deeply appreciate your positive feedback about me. I also wanted to say thanx again and let you know that I enjoyed very much for catering to your needs as much as you enjoyed your day with me.  If you’re traveling to Cyprus again or wish to receive any of my assistance , please don’t hesitate to call or whatsapp me. Warm Regards

Cemaliye was somewhat disorganized. Was late for the meet up and failed to let us know passports were required. Weak on suggestions when itinerary was altered. Her English was a little difficult to understand.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Thomas, Primarily, I am so sorry and gutted to hear that you feel  that way.. The only reason I was late , due to the change of Arrival department of the Cruise Port moved a much further away as I explained on that day by showing the original waiting arrival point.Regarding the passport for crossing the border was an optional as a good gesture as nothing to do with the itienary.  Only if you wanted to see the other side. Even though I explained to you that you didn't miss anything by not crossing it.

We went on a tour with Cemaliye. She went above and beyond to be so helpful and give us a wonderful tour of Northern Cyprus. She added in an extra place to my tour so that I could return to a place I hadn't been to for 30 years. She was flexible, knowledgeable, and very informative. She took us to some amazing places. She booked a table at a lovely restaurant in Bellapais for lunch. I really couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. I would highly recommend Cameliye. Thanks for a wonderful day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for taking the time to write a lovely review. I really appreciate your comments. It was so nice meeting you and your lovely family and hoping to see you again if you ever come this way. Have a lovely time for the rest of your holiday. I look forward to meeting you again one day. Warm Regards Cemaliye

Tour: 2 Day Private Tour With Susan / Nicosia & Kyrenia Tour and Famagusta Tour, Nicosia, Cyprus
Date: Jul 8/17

I had an outstanding tour by Cemaliye for two days through the Northern Turkish Side of Cyprus. She was prompt and always willing to go the extra mile, coming to the Greek side to fetch me both mornings instead of starting at the border. She also was kind enough to drive me to my Larnaca hotel at the end which saved me time money and a long taxi ride. Cemalliye is very knowledgeable about the archeology and history, her English is perfect and a very safe driver. I highly recommend her to visitors, 5+!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan,  Thank you very much for your lovely positive review about me and for choosing me as your tour guide. I'm very happy that you enjoyed your 2 days with me as much as I enjoyed your company and I'm looking forward to meetingyou again one day in the future! I wont forget how an amazing person with the most generous person I have ever met in my life xxx

Fantastic insight into history and what Cyprus has to offer. Cemaliye is a very experienced guide, who allows you to wander and take your time to dig a little draper into the enriched Cypriot history. Very careful driver.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Allen. Thank you for your review and for choosing me as your guide. I appreciate your positive feedback about me and very happy that you enjoyed your day. I look forward to having you both again in the future. Take care!

Tour: Amanda / Cyprus Private Sightseeing Tour for 6, Nicosia, Cyprus
Date: Dec 1/16

Overall, we as a family were unhappy with the services provided by Cemaliye. As we are only limited to 510 characters.. In summary, she is not efficient in replying emails/responding to queries; unenthusiastic with any other parts of Cyprus except for the Turkish Cypriot side, lacks time management skills & should NOT be allowed to drive a car she was not familiar with & provide guiding services. We needed a tour guide to guide us and not a Cypriot driver/housewife. She is NOT a competent tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Im so sorry about your disappointment &understand that you are upset as you didn't have a chance to see anything due to non-stop heavy rain with a long drive on that date! Even though I've tried to cancel the tour because of the weather! You were also aware that I am only licensed to guide in the historical sites of North Cyprus not in the South part due to political situation in Cyprus as I warned you before you proceed with the booking!
