Ayse and her boys were great hosts! Ayse is really experienced so she can anticipate your every need; she is really kind and energetic and always willing to talk, help you plan your travel, etc. Ares and Atlas are two really active boys, always ready to learn something new and play games. I will miss them a lot. The hours are 5 hours a day and the job is to just play with the boys. You guys are such a lovely family, I know that I will be back!

This was my first Worldpackers experience and it would completly amazing! They are so lovely people. They let you feel very comfortable. Ayse cooked the best food and it was lovely to spend time with the children. I helped them by improving their german and they were amazing boys.
I miss this family already so much and I felt like a familymember. I can recommend this place to everybody who loves familys and as well the city. Izmir and this family are just amazing!
All the best to you and big hugs

Ayse, Ahmet and their kids are very welcoming, they make you feel home from the first seconds. The kids are very energetic and keen to learn more, they are also excited to share with you all what they know, you will learn many things from them. They are very open and you will have many tools/options for teaching. Izmir is a heartwarming city and people there are very kind and friendly

I’m so grateful about this experience, about their trust in me and the amazing and beautiful time we spent together :) the kids are great, they are smart and full of fun and creativity, energetic and sweet! They were always willing to learn :) Also I was, and I learned a lot from them. The family made me feel welcomed from the first day. Ayse was a friend to me, and the main door for understanding the culture (and the delicious food).They give you a lot of free time, good for seeing the city. Izmir is clean, organized and friendly. It was a great experience. They touched my heart. ❤️
