Dilek is fabulous. We went on a walking tour with her and she was a pleasure to be with. She showed us everything and was extremely knowledgeable about all the sites. She is also a really nice, fun person. She made our day really special. I totally recommend taking a tour with her.

To start, Dilek is a nice person period, and she was knowledgeable, informative with easy personality. She was able to adjust daily walks to meet our taste. We felt comfortable with Dilek that we had dinner with her husband ( very nice man) and her two adorable children, we had a Turkish experience that was priceless. My family hugged Dilek goodbye which was first time ever when they say goodbye to a guide, they felt she was a friend. Thank you for making our week in Istanbul a memorable one.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for all. I am very happy to hear you had all good experience about my country and enjoyed the tour.

Dilek gives you a fresh and delightful taste of the life of those who call Istanbul their home. We loved her insights regarding their culture, the walks, the food and the pace of the tour. We just had a layover and felt that Dilek found a way to maximize the time without making us feel in a rush. Perfect balance!. Her English is wonderful and her peaceful and kind presence a great asset. Thank you Dilek! You're awesome! A+

My wife and I spend around 6 hours with Dilek in Istanbul . Dilek was a pleasure to deal with both in the booking phase and throughout the short day we went with her. She is knowledgable and dealt with our special interest and changes to the tour during the tour. Her English is perfect and we can only recommend her.

Dilek was a true delight to be with. She was engaging and extremely intelligent. Her casual and calm demeanor made the tour feel more like a fun walk on the beach than a demanding hike through a busy city. Also, Dilek was open to discussing any issue and was amazingly responsive to what interested me vs. what didn't. I think she was reading my mind! We visited all the key sites without any problems and it was one of my best tour experiences ever. Dilek is fantastic.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kristen, it makes me more motivated if our guests leave happy. Thank you very much it really gives me lots of motivation to try my best to make your time perfect in Istanbul

We felt we made a friend and would ask for Delik again if we are ever close to her area. A perfect example of a great guide.

Dilek is very knowledgeable as well as being friendly and personable. She was very prepared since we did not have enough Turkish lira with us as we had misread the amounts needed for the museums, etc. She paid for our tickets and then we reimbursed her when we got back to our hotel. We highly recommend Dilek and tours by locals.

Dilek was very easy to get on with, was responsive to what we wanted to do and flexible as our needs changed during the day. We would not hesitate to recommend her to others. The only advice that we would offer independent travellers is to check the opening hours of the sites before booking your tour. We booked Dilek for a Tuesday and we only found out when we arrived that the Topkapi Palace closes on Tuesdays - which was a pity since it formed a large part of the advertised itinerary.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Huw, thank you very much for your nice comments. It was very nice to meet you, am very sorry thatTopkapi Palace was closed. Now I will add my tour explanation in which day which museums are closed. Thanks for that.

This was 1 of 4 tours with Dilek all of which were wonderful. Dilek went way beyond the tour book synopsis for the historical sites. We four adults gained so much from her anecdotes and insights we felt like we really got to experience the insider view of Istanbul. The ladies quickly bonded and were smiling through the busy days.

We were extremely pleased with the personalized tour of old Istanbul given to us by Ms Dilek. She is very knowledgeable of the geography and history but at the same time very careful not to be overwhelming. She was willing to modify the itinerary to accommodate our interests. Dilek is very charming and quickly made us feel like we had known each other for a long time. At the end of the day her enthusiasm was undiminished in spite of seven plus hours of walking. Please keep people like her in your roster.

Dilek was a fantastic tour guide. She was very communicative prior to our arrival in Istanbul and made my wife and I feel right at home on our honeymoon before we landed at Ataturk. She was very punctual and even switched around some of the itinerary last minute based upon our shopping requests. Incredibly knowledgable about the history of Turkey and very informed on current events, she gave us an excellent introduction into the forces that have shaped Istanbul throughout history. I give her a 9.5/10!

Very pleasant, but needed prompting for information. Could have been more forthcoming with information, that she really had to offer. Enjoyed being with her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Roger. I looked at our mails. There are 26 emails in 6 months. Booking the tour directly from the tour guide instead of a travel agent deals email in office sometimes can make the emailing process slower as I spent my 11/12 hours outdoor in tours. After I come home I reply emails. But i am glad you enjoyed your time. It was a pleasure to guide you too. I will try better about promote informing

Our original guide, Emre, passed us to Dilek. Dilek never contacted us. She did reply to my email, noting she'd meet us late, just after 5p, due to a prior tour. She did not meet us until well after 6p, citing traffic. We arrived in town as everything was closing. Throughout the evening, she walked well ahead of us and mostly provided information only when we caught up to her and asked. While she seemed pleasant, overall we were disappointed and ended the tour early. Prior tour w/diff guide was better.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So sorry that you didnt satisfied with the tour.Your tour was cancelled by another tour guide and i only wanted to help, was already booked by someone else in the same day. You were also very tired didnt want to walk at all wanted to leave the tour in the first bit without seeing almost nothing. As you left with lots of thank you, smiles, cuddles, with a tip obviously i am shocked about what you have written.It was booked as night tour everything was getting close in anycase

Dilek went above and beyond, never rushing, even going past the end time by over half an hour to give me more time for pictures. 9/13 was my birthday and planned a special dinner location that she went early in the day to make sure the view was spectacular. She went out of her way to make my wife comfortable on her first international trip. I can honestly say that we met as customers and parted as friends.
