The Best Guide Turkey has to offer!

My friend and I decided to do a walking tour by ourselves and soon gave up when we changed upon a group of travelers that seemed to be paying rapt attention to the words of a man we would soon be introduced to as Erkan. Erkan was our Guardian angle in Turkey. He showed us around the city, gave us the best recommendation for places to visit, restaurants to eat at and hotels to stay at in Turkey. He helped us in any way possible and he did so with a smile. Turkey wouldn't have been the same without him. Book a tour with him. You'll enjoy every minute of it!

Best day in Istanbul with locals

I had a weekend with a special guest in Istanbul and I wanted to arrange something for him.I have to say it was the best experience I could dream of. We had Erkan as our guide and he is literally a walking library! Amazing knowledge of his culture and history also he knows the best off the beaten places to eat or for a coffee break. He has everything that one can expect from a local guide
