One of the most interesting things of my trip to Istanbul in 2011 was getting to knw miss Nesime because we really enjoyed her good company and her excellent way of guiding and touristic mentoring. The most important thing is that i have won a good and lovely friend.

I am remiss in not commenting sooner, we toured with Nesime on November 10th. Neisme responded to my emails promptly and we scheduled a tour to the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi, Blue Mosque and Hippodrome for 5 people. The Grand Bazaar is closed on Sundays, so we included the Haram (a must see).

Neisme was a great guide. She suggested that we take the tram from the Blue Mosque to the Topkapi Palace because I had injured my knee a few days ago. She was extremely informative and delightful guide.

I strongly recommend her and look forward to returning and going on an extended trip throughout Turkey with Neisme.

Nesime was a wonderful guide. She met us at our hotel in old Istanbul and arranged our tour to maximize the sites we could see. She has an enthusiastic knowledge of her country's history and a winning personality. She was both flexible and let us add The Harem as a site -- not to be missed, in our view. Thank you, Nesime for a memorable day.

There was a lot we wanted to see in Istanbul in our short time there. Other tour companies simply said it couldn’t be done. Nesime was the only one who put an effort into making our tour possible. We were so impressed with her organization and attentiveness that we decided to book a tour with her. When we arrived in Istanbul, we were expecting to have Nesime as our guide, but we found out she was stuck out of town and unable to be back in time for our tour. Although we were very disappointed, she made certain that her colleague Murat would take care of all our needs. She even called a couple times during our tour to make sure everything was okay. Murat did a great job. He was informative, kind, and timely, and made sure we got to see everything we wanted. We were able to see the Topkapi Palace, the Spice Market, go on a Bosphorus Strait Cruise, and enjoy a delicious dinner all in our first afternoon/evening in Istanbul. The next day, we went to the Asian side of Istanbul, Camlica Hill, the old city walls, the Hippodrome, the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the Basilica Cistern, a Turkish carpet shop, and the Grand Bazaar. We accomplished so much in 1 day and never felt rushed. We even had time to stop at a great kebab restaurant for lunch! Murat kept our tour well-paced and fun. Even if you don’t get Nesime as your guide, this is still the best way to go!

I can't begin to say how very much we enjoyed our day with nesime, it was our first time in turkey and she made our trip everything we had hoped it would be and more. nesime is very knowledgeable and a delightful companion. the high point of the day was when she took us to a roadside taverna; we will remember our trip always and have told friends to check with us when they plan a trip to turkey because we know the perfect guide. thanks again nesime for a wonderful experience and we loved turkey.
