Nesime Tanis is a local private tour guide in Turkey

Hi, I am Nesime. I have been working as a licensed tourist guide since 2008. I provide private daily tours and package tours. Upon request, I can plan your entire trip (especially Istanbul - Cappadocia - Konya - Pamukkale - Ephesus angle). I like my job very much. It is my work and my life. "Istanbul, Gallipoli, Troy, Pergamon, Ephesus, Pamukkale, Konya-Mevlana (Rumi), Antalya, Cappadocia, Mardin, Sanliurfa, Mesopotamia, Adiyaman and Ankara" is the most often tour rotation I do in Turkey. My motherland is in the eastern part of Turkey. I am willing to guide you in Mesopotamia as well. Greetings from Turkey :))

If I had to rate Nesime Tanis on a scale from 1-10 I would give her a 15. She helped us with our trip to Turkey not only in Istanbul but also in Ephesus and Cappadocia. Perfect in every way. I selected Nessie because her reviews said she was not only knowledgeable but also kind and caring. She delivered on both counts. We feel we not only had a great experience in this country but we also have a friend here now.
Nessie gave us a three day private tour around Istanbul. She took us to all the important places and recommended good restaurants. Two special spots for us were the Jewish quarter (her favorite place and now a favorite for us as well), and she also arranged a meal with a family in a private home. What a special treat.
Nessie then hooked us up with a half day tour in Ephesus and our guide was wonderful
Then she arranged a three day tour in Cappadocia using the services of Paphlagonia Tours and Ahmet—We did a Turkish show, a Balloon ride, and the Red and Green tour. Ahmet was wonderful in every way—very knowledgeable and flexible so he could tailor our experience to exactly what worked for us.
Don’t hesitate to contact Nesime Tanis for all your needs in Turkey. She is just the best

One of the best tour experiences ever.

We recently visited Turkey and wanted to share our wonderful experience with you. We went as a big group of 15 people (a mix of adults and kids) and so we originally had decided to visit Turkey through self planning and booking. All was set with our hotel bookings and internal flights but just as our dates approached near I pinged one of my cousins who was visiting Turkey approximately 2-3 weeks before us to get some tips and know about his experience. Talking to him I realized that local sightseeing and transport will become a challenge due to language barrier and with such a big family we may end up spending a lot of time in logistics so I felt that we may need to go with a travel agent. The problem was how to find an agent on such short notice that will be willing to work with us to accommodate our needs and plan according to our hotel bookings and cities. Basically giving us a ground package that is economical to ensure we stayed close to our planned budget which seemed a little challenging given the last minute changes. 
I reached out to several agents to ask for quotes based on our plan and after evaluating all of them I felt good about going with Nesime. From the first inquiry she had been very organized ensuring she understood our requirements before sending out a proposal. Nesimie continued to provide regular updates on the progress and booking and assured that we will have the driver, tour guide and a comfortable car in each of our cities. She also agreed to flexible payment terms and was very helpful for last minute requests when we landed in Turkey. To give you a sample of odd requests we made during our visit, I had a few extra luggage that I could not carry in all cities due to internal flight luggage restrictions so I had to find a place to leave them until the day I return back to Istanbul, The hotel I had booked denied our request to keep the luggage, I reached out to Nesime to see if she can help and within 15-minutes she found a place for us to drop our luggage. Later my mom ended up needing a wheelchair and again on a last minute request she was able to arrange a rental wheelchair to accommodate our needs. In each city the driver and tour guide all arrived on time and were always very respectful and accommodative. She also took time to get our honest feedback on the guides and drivers that were sent in each city to ensure our experience was great.
I want to thank Nesime and her team for being so patient with us and helping at every step during our trip. I would recommend her services to anyone planning to visit Turkey, whether you have made partial bookings or have no plans she is the person that will work with you to make your trip memorable.

Nesime is simply great . I had little knowledge about Turkish culture and history, and she is simply amazing. She is so detailed about everything it made my heart light up. She is very personal. She arranged everything for us met us at our hotel. I felt not one moment she would disappoint us. She is a true friend. We definitely will hire Nesime again for our second trip to Turkey and it’s a wonderful country. The people are so nice and friendly I felt always welcomed and the food and wine is very delicious. Nesime thank you again for making this trip so wonderful for us and easy without you , we could not have done this trip .
