Hi! It's Gözde from İzmir. I've studied Tourism Guidance for four years. I have a strong desire to travel, meet new people and learn about different cultures. So far i've visited 10 nations and 30 cities around Europe. It's still counting :) I will continue to learn and pass on what I have learnt till my dying breath. That, I suppose, is my mission on this small planet:)

Tour description

First of all, welcome to Turkey's dazzling Aegean Coast, and the port city of  Izmir!  

As an official licensed tourist guide born here in the city of İzmir, I'm willing to show you my beautiful city's culture, history, local life, and all the stories that are to discover. I want to help you understand how it feels to be a Turkish person!

Places we'll visit:

  • Clock Tower (Landmark of İzmir City)
  • Konak (Yalı) Mosque (Very unique must-see mosque)
  • Historical Lift (Panoramic old elevator located in the old Jewish neighborhood)
  • Kemeraltı (Historical Bazaar)
  • In Historical Bazaar we'll have a break so you can taste some turkish coffee, tea, local foods etc.
  • Ancient Smyrna Agora (Archeological site from Roman Period)

Tour will start in front of the Clock Tower

Additional information:

I am flexible so we can rearrange tour hour or route together.

Ancient Smyrna Agora Entrance Fee: 50 TL

Gözde gave a fantastic tour of Izmir, she is very informative and added lots of little stories that made the tour feel very special. A highlight for me was stopped in the bazar to try some traditional Turkish desserts. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting.

I recently had the opportunity to take a tour of Izmir and the tour guide made the experience truly special. Gözde was friendly and answered all of our questions, showed us interesting places, explained the history of the city very well, and gave us tips for eating, shopping and getting around on public transportation. Overall, if you're looking for a knowledgeable and friendly tour guide who can show you the best of a city, I would definitely recommend her. It was a wonderful experience!

With professional training on mythology, history and a genuine penchant for art, Gözde gave an exceptionally knowledgeable and informative tour. The insightful connections between arts and history, together with timely, quick-witted humour really makes the exploration of Izmir with Gözde stands out from other experience. If you want to take something away from this beautiful Aegean coastal town, you should definitely set aside the time and book her limited time slots whenever you can.
