I was planning a tour with a guide and ended the day with a friend. Erkan is not only a very knowledgeable and great guide, but more than that a very open minded, warm hearted and fun person to explore the city with. Can not recommend him enough.

Erkan was an amazing guide. After being dropped off by a taxi at an incorrect address that cost us 45 minutes of additional walking, Erkan changed our somber mood. His knowledge and passion is great. He went out of his way to look after our needs. Highly recommended

Erkan was very friendly and knowledgable. He showed us some lesser-known sites of Izmir, such as the view from the Asansör Elevator, and took us to the bazaar, where we tried some local specialities. Erkan will tailor the tour to your interests. Would definitely recommend!

Erkan is an excellent guide who is very personable, hospitable and professional and has spectacular knowledge of the Turkish culture and history. We didn’t know what to do when we arrived in Izmir and I was fortunate enough to connect with Erkan through Guru walk on the same day. Erkan took us on walking tour and gave us a really nice overview of the city. He was also very flexible and able to accommodate us when I asked for a late afternoon/evening tour. I strongly recommend Erkan to anyone who wants a personal and very knowledgeable guide to show them around Izmir city.

Erkan was a nice guide. He took his time to make a personal guide just for me. He told me the history of izmir and we had a great and open cultural discussion. Highly recommended
