Erkan was fabulous. Knowledgeable and insightful, he took us on a wander through the bazaar, pointing out mosques, food, historical places. He taught us how to take the tram using our credit card and showed us two ends of Izmir which would have been too far to walk. I especially appreciate his curiosity about the cultures of myself and the other participant. It made for lively discussions.

Erkin was an amazing guide. He was very knowledgeable. Loud clear voice and speaks good English. He gave very good recommendation for food in kemeralti. We are well travelled n joined many walking tours in America and Europe and this is the BEST! Erkin is very sincere and enthusiastic about sharing his beloved Izmir. What we did not expect was when we said we wanted to go to the Agora, he paid fr his own entrance ticket to bring us in, at his own expense. Free walking tours will never bring u into paid attractions. We appreciated it. During this trip some members of the group asked how much we should tip the guides. According to my research 2023, Euro10-15 per person fr a 2 hour walking tour is a must. Erkin tour was more than 4 hours!!!! Thus for this tour with Erkin, we doubled the min amount.
