Our travel agency organized our entire trip around Turkey and we were so lucky that they chose Emre as our guide in Istanbul. Emre picked us up from the hotel and took us around the city. Not only does he know every detail about everything you will see, he also knows his way around the city, so you won't be wasting time in traffic (and this is GOLD!). He is kind, funny and also a great photographer :) You'll really enjoy the time with him. Emre took us from the European side to the Asian side, a ferry ride, riding the metro, the Bosphorus tour and pretty much every place we wanted to check out, always with a smile on his face. He also took us to a great lunch place and then this little but delicious sweet shop where we got to eat a really delicious Baklava. He also gave us tips for when we were in other places in Turkey, which we really appreciated (try the "Pottery Kebab" in Cappadocia). We are so thankful that Daroute Travel chose Emre for us, he was the perfect fit and the greatest company in our 2 days in Istanbul.

I spent a day with Emre touring the Old City. He is very knowledgeable and personable. It seemed like he knew everything and everyone we met along the way. Emre picked me up at my hotel and dropped me off, and lunch was covered. It was a great day!

Fantastic day with personalized itinerary to meet my interests and needs! Outstanding tour of Istanbul highlighting all of the main tourist sites. My tour guide, Emre was so incredible that I booked 2 more tours that week! Emre speaks several languages fluently so I was able learn the history and details about Istanbul. I highly recommend these tours to solo travelers and travelers that do not have much time!

Emre and his team arranged for our family an all inclusive week - including transfers - and hands-on advice and guidance from Istanbul down to Bodrum. Any issue, any question, Emre was on the end of the phone line sorting it out for us, even at a distance. Best beach in bodrum was at our hotel (and we checked out others during our stay); great food in the hotel also; partner company staff there in direct contact with him sorting out anything we needed. And hotel was at Emre’s recommendation. I thoroughly recommend Emre and his company and look forward to using him again on our next trip to Turkey.... which will be soon!
