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

Zeynep was a wonderful guide! Extremely knowledgeable about all things Turkey. Also very friendly and warming. After our tour with Zeynep, I think we are all more than ready to head back to Turkey to see more of what the country has to offer (unfortunately, only had a couple days). If you are looking for a knowledgeable and friendly guide, Zeynep is your person!

Zeynep was fantastic. Made us feel welcome and comfortable. Very knowledgeable and informative but also able to skip ahead when some in our party were ready to move on. Took us to a great lunch and an unexpectedly excellent Turkish Rug demonstration and experience. Highly recommend to everyone. Thank you for a great day.

Zeynep's trip to the Galata rug-making coop was a very nice addition to our tour. While they certainly would like you to buy some carpets, the staff were not pushy in any way, and patiently answered all our questions while showing us their processes and their beautiful carpets. The various Ephesus ruins are not to be missed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much .Hope to see you soon again. All the Best Zeynep

We enjoyed our tour with Zeynep very much. Everything went very smoothly. Zeynep met us outside the port terminal as promised with a comfortable car for the ride to Ephesus. At Ephesus, Zeynep guided us around the large and impressive site and had good knowledge about everything we asked questions about. She customized the tour to our requests. She was friendly and helpful with anything we needed. I would wholeheartedly recommend Zeynep for a tour of Ephesus.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your nice comment. I really enjoyed with you as well . Hope to see you here again All the Best Zeynep

We had used Zeynep on a previous tour as she was excellent. Unfortunately, this trip she had a last minute emergency and couldn't meet us at the port. Even though there was four cruise ships in port, and no doubt every guide in town taken, she found us a competent guide at the last minute who met us on time, with driver at the port. I was shocked after the tour was complete, that she met us at the drop off site, bought us souvenirs and was apologetic in not being able to provide us the tour. Excellent!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: James! I am lost for words. You and your family are apsolutely perfect and polite family.I hope to see you again.And thank you very much for your kind understanding. All the Best Zeynep

Zeynep was one of the best guides we have ever had. We toured the ruins of Ephasis, the Blessed Mother's final home, St. John's Basilica, a place where they hand-make gorgeous oriental rugs, and had an authentic Turkish meal alfresco in a wonderful setting. We toured in a Mercedes air conditioned van. Zeynep speaks flawless English, is very knowledgeable, and best of all is just a warm, sweet person. We joked at the end that we would adopt her as our daughter. This is the travel bargain of all time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joseph, Thank you very much for your warmest review.it was a real pleasure spending this days with you. I felt like your daughter and were taking my family around here.Thanks for your visit and chose me Hopefully see you in Turkey again. All the Best Zeynep

Zeynep was amazing. We could not believe all the knowledge she had for us. We will recommend her to everyone we know coming to Turkey.. Her friendliness and perfect English was just a added bonus. By the end of the tour we considered her Family! We LOVE HER! Patti Compton and Family (now plus one with Zeynep)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your nice comments.It is honor for me to be seen as a member of your family.I appreciated since I was chosen by you.ıt was such a great day for me as well. Hope to meet you here in Turkey again or in USA:)) All the best Zeynep
I don't know what the turkish word for "sweet" is, but it describes Zeynep. She is very knowledgeable of her Turkish history, and extremely friendly and personable. She accommodated us on-the-fly as our itinerary changed a bit, and showed genuine concern for our family to have a great tour. She'll even follow up with you AFTER your tour to see how the rest of your vacation went. This is the best way to do your tours--no crowds!Excellent communicator. Highly-recommended as a tour guide..we miss you Zeynep!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mike,I really dont know how to thank you for this.Turkish word for sweet is ''TATLI''I am very touched for this comment.It was my pleasure to be with you and meet such a nice family. Hope to meet you here again .I miss you too I wish you every success in your life Warm Regards Zeynep

Our four couples recently came back from our tour of Ephesus, guided by Zeynep. She waited for an hour for our ship to clear and was still in great spirits to see us and show us this ancient city. She had a driver and large A/C van awaiting us. She was very professional, interactive, and knowledgeable and I would recommend her to anyone who wishes to see this great city. She met us as a tour guide and left us as a friend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks James It was a perfect day for me as well. I am still using your word that you have teached me .You and your great friends are always welcome to my country.Hope to meet you again.

Zeynep E. made our day in Turkey a great success. She was pleasant, polite and courteous and spoke very good English. Her knowledge of the ancient site of Ephesus was excellent and everything was explained to us clearly. She was very willing to tailor the tour to our request including a visit to the steam engine museum at Camlik which was well worth a visit. We cannot recommend Zeynep highly enough as a very friendly, competent and knowledgeable guide and would certainly seek her out again in the future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind compliment.I appreciate your thoughtful manner. It was a great day for me and enjoyed a lot during the day with you. Wishing both of you all the best .
