I am a licenced tour guide based in Istanbul but can organize tours throughout Turkey. I have been guiding tours since 2009. I graduated from Gazi University Travel Guidance and Tourism Management Programme in 2004. I worked as a travel agent and organized tours in Turkey for American, Australian and Canadian guests before I start working as a guide. I am happier working outside of the office as I am a free spirit. I like sharing our rich history, delicious cuisine, unique architecture with travellers. Turkey is a great pot where many cultures melted in. Throughout centuries different cultures like Greeks, Armenians, Turks, Jewish lived in same land and their cultures became part of this land, their spirits still live in Turkey. That's the reason we have such a great cuisine, rich history and culture. Turkey has a lot to offer and I have a lot to share with my guests. Please welcome.
l can guide you in Cappadocia and in lzmir -where Ephesus is- if you cover my transportation fee.
Our family had a private day tour of Bursa with Emine. Communication with her prior to the tour was pretty good. Emine showed up on time on the day of tour. We found her to be quite friendly, knowledgeable, and warm. Her English and communication skills were awesome. We had decided places of interest in advance. Emine let us took us our time and was on pace with us throughout the day. She was quite knowledgeable about each place and demonstrated historical facts in details. Best part, she took us to shopping which was a high on our list! Overall, Emine was fabulous.
