Emre customized a tour of Istanbul for us, including a lunch at a wonderful Turkish restaurant. He is very knowledgeable, his English is excellent, and he was receptive to our needs in every way. Don't hesitate to plan your visit to this charming city with Emre! Emre is knowledgeable, friendly, and can make adjustments to your plans as the day goes on. He can solve any problem that arises. His choice of restaurants and sights to see was impressive! Emre was a wonderful guide...fluent in the English language and well versed with even the smallest details of each site. We were traveling with two young children and he took care of them at times to let us go and explore the sites a little deeper. Extremely understanding and considerate. Highly recommend him to all!

 1  Françoise Joe Lambert / “enthousiastic professional”
Emre Onal was recommended to me by the Turkish Tourism Board to help me in my project to film Istanbul's palaces on the Bosphorus for the travel TV Liberty TV;His support has proved invaluable and has helped me to achieve in a few days what otherwise might have taken weeks!He is fast, efficient,has a deep understanding of the country and its culture,is able to share it with you,and on top of that,I must say he is a very good company,joyful & communicative.

 2  Linda Iversen / “Emre does a wonderful job.”
I have used Emre's services on two trips to Istanbul, and he made both experiences memorable. Istanbul is a traffic choked, crowded city, and Emre showed us far more than we could have ever seen ourselves. He is very knowledgable about everything he showed us.
The driver was standing by waiting for us wherever we went; Emre bought all the tickets we needed in advance; and he became a host to us, not just a guide.

 3  Diego STOOB / “Sightseeing Tour / VIP Service”
I can recommend Emre to everyone. Very professional sightseeing tours.
Tour guides are very well informed about all hot spots in Istanbul and giving good explanations and tips. Emre takes care of his customers and you can feel that he is doing his job with his heart. I had to plan a VIP Service for some customers from our private jet company and the service was outstanding. I also visited Istanbul privately. Emre took care of me and my friend in a very professional manner. I still remember the great trip to Istanbul.

 4  Marc Levine and Joan Pinkus / Wonderful Experience with Emre
We had a wonderful experience with Emre as our guide in Turkey. He greeted us at the airport, delivered us safely to our hotel and gave us an educational and very informative tour of Istanbul. He then arranged to meet us at Ephesus and provided us with an excellent guided tour there. He made our day! Emre is very personable, engaging and has a comprehensive knowledge of Turkey and its fascinating history.

We were very pleased with the arrangements Emre made for all of our transportation, which was ... view more always comfortable, prompt and safe. We also appreciated his recommendations for restaurants. We look forward to returning to Turkey and having more travels with Emre. He is indeed a wonderful guide and we feel we have made a new friend in Turkey.

 5  James W. McCulla / Istanbul Travel Experience
We were a group of six persons, all of whom have a great deal of travel experience in various parts of the world. We learned that our choice of Emre Onal as our Istanbul guide was an excellent decision. Emre\'s knowledge of Turkish history, the history of and significant aspects of key sites such as the Topkapi Palace and the Blue Mosque, of the Muslim and Christian faiths, of geography, demographics, politics and culture generally is outstanding.

Emre has it all together administratively. The ... view more van always arrived on time piloted by an excellent driver (a necessity in Istanbul). Entry to the principal buildings went quickly despite crowds of tourists. And he could adjust the schedule quickly to our special requests.

The dinner restaurants he recommended were excellent as were the luncheon sites he selected. In the latter case one overlooked the beautiful Bosporus strait and in another the geographically spectacular juncture of the Bosporus and the Black Sea. One more thing: you\'ll be in hands of an easy- going, good-humored individual who obviously enjoys his work a great deal.

 6  Lorie Embleton / Amazing 10-Day Tour through Turkey
Emre, thank you for an amazing 10-day tour through Turkey. I enjoyed your upbeat, positive attitude and sense of humor, it sure makes a difference when a guide is as fun and entertaining as you were, yet still provided us with so much historical and factual information. You ensured everyone got to do the things they wanted to, and even customized the tour when we requested to do some different things.

I also appreciated all the time and effort you took in tracking down my lost luggage. You are on the ... view more top of my \"best ever\" trips, and I am recommending you to everyone who is interested in Turkey.

Thanks again and happy travels!

 7  Kenneth Booth / 2 days in Istanbul and 1 day in Kusadasi/Ephesus
Thank you, Emre, for your wonderful vehicles, drivers, and tour services. You did a wonderful job for our 2 days in Istanbul and our 1 day in Kusadasi/Ephesus. You really helped make our visit to Turkey even more special than we thought it could be. You provide a top notch service, and I will recommend you to anyone I know or hear of that is Turkey bound.

We particularly enjoyed your fabulous selection for our luncheon restaurant in Kusadasi - the food, the wine, the beer, the view, and your company ... view more were all equally magnificent. Kudos to you and your company! Keep up the good work.

Very Best Regards, Kenny Kenneth P Booth

 8  Kimberley Lovato / Long weekend in Istanbul
We just got back from an amazing long weekend in Istanbul. After our short flight from Brussels, we were greeted by Emre and his driver and were guided expertly around Istanbul for the next few days. Our stay was short but it offered us a wonderful taste of this vibrant city.

Emre\'s knowledge of the city and passion for his culture and history are contagious and we really can\'t wait to get back there and see more of Istanbul. He is also a great resource for restaurants and other city ... view more sites. I will definitely recommend Emre to friends and use his services again the next time I come to Istanbul, which I hope is very soon.

 9  Susan Quilliam / Istanbul tour
I had just a few hours free in Istanbul so I wanted to see as much as I could with a guide who knew everything. Happily, I got Emre! In three hours, he took me all over the center of Istanbul, effortlessly floating past problems such as traffic jams and parking hassles. His manner was friendly yet professional and he obviously had all the facts at his fingertips.

I learned so much about Istanbul, far more and far more interestingly, than I would from a guidebook - it was incredibly good value. Emre ... view more even tailored the tour so that we saw everything so that I could be back at my conference in time for my next session. I\'d recommend Cengo Travel and Emre to anyone who wants to see Istanbul from the inside!

 10  Stuart & Penny Dodd / I would have no hesitation to use your services again
I want to thank you for the wonderful tour you gave to my wife Penny, myself (Stuart) and our friend Linda Iverson. With so little time to see all that your wonderful city has to offer you managed to give us a huge advantage by purchasing all the required entry tickets ahead of time.The seamless arrangement of having the driver drop us off and meet us without delay made our visit go very smoothly.

Your comprehension of English and ability to make the history come alive really helped make our visit ... view more more enjoyable.I would have no hesitation to use your services again or recommend you to any of our friends. Please do not hesitate to use our name if you need a reference.
