Hi, I am the founder of our company with my wife Nesrin. I am a licensed English speaking tour guide with 17 years of experience on tourism field and leading tours for 10 years in all over Turkey. I have BA degree on tourism management and tour guiding. Tourism has been my full-time job now. I usually take private excursions with small groups of Americans from the cruise ships especially. I also run round trips in the west and eastern TURKEY. We decided to establish our family company and co-operated with American and Australian travel agents in the recent years. We are working for designing the most suitable private tours for our guests in Istanbul and Ephesus. Hope to see you in our beautiful country.

Nesrin Özkara
Tour Guide

Hi everybody. I am Nesrin. I am one of the founder of our conpany. I travelled big part of Europe and Middle East. I like travelling for sure. But I more enjoy of sharing my culture and life in Turkey with travellers. It becomes my life style. I have been guiding as a full time job for the last 9  years. I lead daily tours and round trips but more specialized on private and tailor made tours. Now I’ve been busy with our new company and designing tours in different concepts. I like cooking and I am working on sedigining culinary tours now for sharing the Turkish coruses with their recipies with travellers. I believe that guiding suits my personality because I like meeting with new faces from different countries. Also I adore my country, its deep historical background and natural beauties. I feel myself as an ambassador of my country too. I invite you for sharing the life in here with a huge cultural mosaic of Asia Minor.

Hi, everyone. I am Emine, one of the tour guide of Delightful Istanbul Tours. I always wanted to explore unseen parts of life rather than the surface. I travelled all around Turkey for four years and graduated from Gazi University Tourism and Travel Management department.

I love meeting people, learn about the different cultures and also mention about my country with its rich culture and history. Looking forward to meeting you for a cultural exchange in Istanbul.
