Nesime spent an entire day with us touring the Sutanhamet section of Istanbul. She came to our hotel early and had tips on what to bring and what not to bring as this was going to be a walking tour. We visited the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Hippodrome, Topkapi Palace, and Grand Bazaar. We had a lovely lunch at a restaurant that she suggested. She was very attentive to our needs, answered all of our questions, spoke excellent English, and had a voluminous knowledge of the history of the places we visited. It was easy to tell from the very beginning that Nesime is a very kind person and truly cares about your experience in Istanbul. She also was very flexible--giving us extra time at spots that were interesting to us. The tour never seemed hurried although we were in Istanbul at the height of the tourist season. We had several other tour guides for the remainder of our stay in Istanbul and Turkey, but we felt Nesime was by far the best. If you are considering a private tour of Istanbul, we feel you can do no better than Nesime Kaya.
