“Great tours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

I traveled to Istanbul on holiday with my husband, sister, and three single friends all from Indiana, USA. We took three separate private day tours with Nesime Kaya. We had a wonderful time, she was a lot of fun and a good listener. She is also very knowledgeable and a good planner. I highly recommend. Istanbul is amazing and you'll want a highly educated, native expert with good English by your side!

“Nesime Kaya Made Our Visit to Instanbul!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

My husband and I and another couple spent 10 days in Turkey in June, 2011. We designed our itinerary and worked with Medhills travel to book our accommodations, guides, etc.
We originally requested a guide in Istanbul for one day, but enjoyed Nesime so much, that we hired her for a second day.
Not only is Nesime an excellent and knowledgeable guide, she is a lovely person. Our friend was celebrating her birthday on our trip. Her husband asked Nesime to arrange for a small celebration for us in a restaurant. Nesime went above and beyond.
With Nesime, we felt like we had a friend in Istanbul.

“Istanbul Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

We are a family of 4 and had recently completed a 4 day tour of Istanbul from Dubai which took us around 3.45 hrs by flight. Our 4 days was not sufficient to cover Turkey as this is a very important historical place and we advise at least 8 to 10 days if one must see all history.

And its always advisable to read literature on the places you are going to visit otherwise the trip would be meaningless. NESIME our tour guide was selected for the 4 days and I've never imagined this place contained so much of history. Nesime was thorough in her subject and the 4 days went very very fast.

She remained with us till late evening as she got immersed in the subject. She forgave our lack of knowledge on many occasions. She planned our 4 day tour extremely well and even arranged for Transport like metro, trams, cab etc. when required.

We are very eager to visit the other parts of Turkey and will be returning soon. The trip would not have been worthwhile without Nesime and we look forward to seeing her soon.

“Nesima Kaya, great guide and friend!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

we have first known nesima in her capacity as a touristic guide for our tour in turkey. Not only she was an excellent guide who never wasted an effort to give us all interesting information on all the places and monuments we have visited, but she also cared much for our comfort, entertainment and joy to get back with an unforgetable experience! she has a great voice and spirit! my entire group loved her company! I would definitely recommend her services to all those who care to have an exceptional experience in Turkey!We love you Nesima!

“Wonderful tour of Istanbul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

We were referred to Nesime through a friend who had visited Istanbul earlier in the year who highly recommended her. Nesime was extremely flexible with our crazy schedule and was accommodating when I had to change the dates on her multiple times due to last minute schedule changes.

Nesime met us at our hotel in the morning and then led us on a very relaxed and flexible tour of Istanbul. She took us to a fantastic restaurant in the middle of the tour which we went back to later in our trip. She was very kind, spoke excellent English and there was no pressure to go to any "cultural experiences" (aka: high pressure arts/crafts shops)- which was a really nice change from all the group tours in Turkey.

I highly recommend a tour of Istanbul with Nesime as she is very knowledgable about each site's history, she is flexible with the schedule and the tour and will take you to some great hidden spots. Thanks for the great tour, Nesime!!
