We had been to Istanbul before but had found the Asian side intriguing and difficult to manage without help. This time, we turned to Zerrin. She gave us an enlightening day. We... read more

It was our first time in Istanbul and Zerrin was a great help to find our way around, to see far more than we would have been able to on our own, and to fully get immersed in the beautiful places to see instead of being occupied with queuing up, reading maps / lonely planet guidebook etc, we could just...

Dear Robbie; It was my pleasure guiding you in Istanbul. Thank you very much for a wonderful review regarding my guidance. After visiting all highlights on the European side, Asian side is very good option to explore the real local life of Istanbul with Cengelkoy, Kuzguncuk, Kadikoy, Uskudar and others. I also spent an amazing day with you. I am... More

My husband and I arranged a few days of sightseeing in Istanbul, as well as a day trip to Ephesus with Zerrin. She tailored our days to what we wanted to see, what she really felt would enrich our experience, and how we were feeling (dealing with jet lag and recovering from colds). Zerrin made herself available for what worked... More

A fantastic experience. Zerrin was able to design a perfect one day tour, taking into account what I had seen, what I wanted to see on my own, and what my personal interests were. She was tireless and always energized to head to the next site. Extremely happy. Very easy to communicate and arrange up via email. Recommended.

If like me you only have one day to see Istanbul, then you can't go wrong hiring Zerrin. A big advantage is you avoid the ticket and entrance line-ups - with her credentials you go straight in. Got full-day value too - started at 8:30 and finished after 5:00 - and she was ready to keep going but I needed... More

We spent 4 days with Zerrin to explore the city. The time was not enough to see more. Istanbul is an amazing historial city and very safe to visit. Especially, while exploring the city with a local who knows the area, people in the historical sights and shopping areas, everything comes easier, safer and faster. It was amazing 4 days... More

We heard lots of nice reviews about Istanbul and were so excited to explore around the city in a limited time. We had only 1 day and too many amazing buildings to see. We hired Zerrin for a day. She did not get bored to explain, show nice places to take pictures and eat as well. She made our day... More

Selected this private tour operator for our 2-day cruise stop in Istanbul and were very, very happy with our choice. In my opinion a better value than the cruise tour. With only 3 of us, along with guide Zerrin, we could easily move about the old city and sites easily. She met us at the cruise terminal and ensured our... More
