Zeynep was a wonderful guide for our tour of Ephesus. We used ToursByLocals when our cruise ship docked in Turkey. Zeynep was punctual, friendly, and knowledgeable. She speaks excellent English and showed us a great time. I highly recommend her services. Zeynep will tailor your itinerary to your wishes, and you will love it. There were six of us on the tour; the van was large, safe, and comfortable. We all rated her five stars.

Zeynep was very well informed and educated. Friendly and respectful, if I have any complaint, her driver spoke very little English which made the hours of driving without her demanding.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ray, Thank you very much for your nice comments.I am very glad to meet you. I am so sorry about that but I may not find english speaking driver.

Our Ephesus explorations were among the most enjoyable of our trip and Zeynap was an excellent guide. Her enthusiasm and depth of knowledge helped us to absorb the incredible history and sophistication of the cultures that lived in this region. We had a wonderful lunch, learned about silk production for rugs, and did some retail therapy at a leather store. She was accommodating to our interests and mobility, which made our explorations truly pleasurable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kate Thank you so much for your kind reviews ,It was my pleasure being your tour guide I am very glad to meeting you all. Hoping to see you again Warm Regards Zeynep

This tour is really worth seeing. Through a change in our personal schedule, we had fewer time to spend on this tour, it was very worth while. Zeynep is a very knowledgeable guide, and also adapted to our needs, without any problem. We really enjoyed her tour and her company.

Date: Aug 18/19

Zeynep was a knowledgeable, and flexible guide. She picked us up at the airport in Izmir and took us through Ephesus, Sirence, Kusadasi. We were surprised when lunch turned out to be at a bit of a tourist trap, designed to bring in tourists to learn about rug making by local women. However the food was amazing and we enjoyed the demonstration of the rug making techniques. Even after the tour was over, Zeynep continued to be helpful in finding us a guide later in the week in Izmir.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind review . I was very glad to meeting you.I also enjoyed with you .Hope to see you again. All the best Zeynep

Zeynep was not only one of the most informed guides we've ever used, she was engaging with both adults and the children. She was genuinely passionate about what she does and for that reason we would not only use her again should we be in Turkey, but we would recommend her to anyone wanting to enjoy Ephesus and the surrounding areas.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Roger, Thank you so much for your great feedback and messages.

We spent 2 full days touring with Zeynep. She was very friendly and knowledgeable about the history and culture of the areas that we visited. We had a private tour and she was very flexible and accommodating so that we could see the things that were most important to us. We had some spontaneous changes to our original plan, and as a result, Zeynep found us a fabulous, authentic restaurant in a village of Sirince. I would highly recommend Zeynep. She is very kind and a lot of fun!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dani, Thank you so much for your great review about me and Your kind feedback about Toursbylocals guiding service.It was such a pleasure to meet you all and I really loved to share some time with you and I am so glad you enjoyed the days.I hope you have pleasant memory of your trip..

Zeynep was very informative and detail oriented. We were impressed and learned a lot on the tour. The tomb of Mevlana (Rumi) was an educational experience, enlightening and enjoyable. Zeynep provided insights of Sufism and explained the cultural and musical significance of Konya. Konya is a clean city with beautiful gardens and well planned roads. The best time to visit Konya would be in summer. The ethnicity and cultural aspects of Konya are a wonderful experience. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Murali, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. It was a beautiful day that we spent together.We really had an amazing time together. I will never forget our tour You are very welcome!! Can wait to see you again!!.

I have gone on many guided tours before, and honestly Zeynep is the best Tory guide I have ever had. What sets her apart is she will go beyond what is expected to make your stay stress free and enjoyable. She will show you sites you will not find online, and she tailors the tour to your needs and interests. She takes great pride in her work and in sharing her heritage. I would very strongly recommend Zeynep!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mohammad , Thank you for your kind review. I enjoyed being your tour guide and I glad you enjoyed the tour. I hope you all come back and visit us soon. Thanks again and I hope you have some great travel.Zeynep

Zeynep is an excellent tour guide and we are very happy that we chose her. Zeynep is very knowledgable and was always on hand to answer any questions we had. Zeynep took us to excellent places with the assistance of her charming and friendly father who transported us everywhere. The food places Zeynep picked were delicious allowing us to sample authentic local food. If you wish to visit the historic city of Konya I would definitely recommend Zeynep! Zeynep and her father have become our lifelong friends x

Zeynep is fantastic. Out of seven private tours we took in Greece and Turkey, this was the highlight of our trip. We were a bit apprehensive about going to Turkey and we are so glad we did. Zeynep is a wealth of knowledge and very passionate about what she does. She is a very kind soul. I would give more than five stars if I could. Needless to say I highly recommend this tour with Zeynep.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Joann. It was my pleasure to guide you around these places .It was lovely to meet you both,I had a fantastic day with you guys.Hope to see you again. Best Wishes Zeynep

We are very particular. In this context, Zeyneb was the best. She is wonderfully polite, extremely knowledgeable, a sheer delight to be with, and could find out of the way and unusual places to visit that are simply enchanting and memorable. She speaks perfect English as well. By the end of the tour she becomes part of the family.

Zeynep's brilliant! My interests: Sufism, heritage, mystical sites. She has significant qualifications in theology history geography anthropology + flawless English. Her demeanor is warm & flexible per client needs. I had a life changing experience resultant of lessons she shared. I acquired knowledge of Sufism & benefited from sites exuding positive energy. Itinerary included gastronomic meals. With her kind heart I've made a friend for life. I appreciated some traditional gifts which she humbly gave me.

We had a fantastic day with Zeynep. We were collected in an excellent van and managed to see plenty of sites including an extensive tour of Ephesus. She was really informative and having a private tour meant we could go at our own pace (we have three children) and focus on what we wanted to. It was much better than being part of a bigger group. I would definitely recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much.I am very happy to meet you all.It was such a wonderful day with your family .Enjoy your holiday and have a great life with your family. Hope to see you soon

My family and I recently used Zeynep for our short stay in Kusadasi. Everything that was promised in our communications was delivered. She was punctual, pleasant and knowledgeable about Ephesus and the surrounding areas. Last minute we changed our plans and she was flexible by creating a new schedule for us. She made 2 authentic Turkish meals possible for us in very pleasant places. The car we used was clean and comfortable. She met us in Izmir, and provided transport back. Her English was excellent.
