Our Guides

Our founder and many members of our team have been tour guides for many years that give us the strength to know the best guides in Turkey & Greece. It is our privilege to know and to consult with them every detail of our products. And since they are a part of that process, we refine your holiday to be the best experience it can be. They are:

  • Officially licensed.
  • True masters of their craft. They are intelligent, entertaining, personable, organized, fluent in English (most of them are multilingual) and knowledgeable on many aspects of the local lifestyle, Turkish history and culture through its cuisine, art and architecture.
  • An inevitable part of your vacation.
  • Go above and beyond their call of duty.
  • Able to anticipate the needs of our guests. They will do everything within their power to exceed your expectations.
  • Know who’s who in each region through their personal connections so they are able to open doors that wouldn’t be open to visitors.
  • Dedicated to meticulous service and are compatible with the guests’ needs and ages.



We work with carefully chosen hotels. We observe and check quality of each property we work with. We think that where you stay is as important as your destination. Our hotels collection include international luxury chains like Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, Kempinski, Park Hyatt, Raffles, Shangri-La, Mandarin Oriental and St. Regis. Apart from the world’s leading hotel chains, we work with some local boutique properties that reflect Turkey’s & Greece’s contemporary architectural design and hip culture.  

Arrive in Style

We only book the luxury Mercedes Benz mini-vans, buses or sedan cars during your tours and transfers. They are all air-conditioned and stocked with plenty of chilled bottled water. For a stylish arrival, we offer VIP Fast Track Service to avoid passport queues and assistance with luggages before you are met with your private guide who will be waiting you after luggage claims.
