Ege is amazing. She is very sweet and she will plan everything according to your needs. I had the most remarkable tour with her. Not only everything was perfect, but I felt, in every instance, that she truly cared about me, and did her best to make the day memorable. She took me to all the spots you would want to go from historic places to hidden gems to the local places where you would not go otherwise. She made me taste all the local drinks and food and was incredibly nice and helpful all the time.
There aren't enough great things that I can say about Ege and our tour with her. Having muddled through a couple of days in Istanbul on our own, my wife and I then had our scheduled tour with Ege and it was a whole new world! Ege is amazing! We hit it off with her immediately, and right away we were starting our adventure. Ege took us to the cutest town (Kuzguncuk) on the Asian side and we had the best little Turkish breakfast. She then took us to Kadıköy for a locals-typical day in the market, including shopping and an awesome lunch. Finally, we ferried it back to the European side and made it to the Grand Bazaar for more shopping. We rode ferries, taxis, and even the tramway, covering so much of the Istanbul that we wouldn't have seen on our own. And the best part was that we knew we were in the best hands, not worrying about communicating with the locals, choosing what food to eat, finding the right ferry to ride, buying tickets, knowing where to go -- we worried about none of these, thanks to Ege! LIke I said, I can't say enough about how much our tour with Ege made our entire trip. She's friendly, smart, knowledgeable, funny, personable, and down-to-earth. Needless to say, we recommend using Localie (and requesting Ege) to anyone who's visiting Istanbul. Thank you so much, Ege!
