We went to Istanbul, Cappadocia, Konya, Ephesus, Bursa, and back to Cappadocia. Ugur was a knowledgeable, patient, and flexible host who paid great attention to detail and met all of our requests for planning, and also changes in daily plans as needed. He was well versed in history and architecture, and enriched our experience immensely. All of us on the... More

I had read good reviews about this company tours ans decided to book a night photo tour with them, for me and my wife (a non photographer, she just came along not to be left at the hotel). We were met at our hotel (in Beyoglu, 200 meters from Galata Tower) at 7.30pm by our guide Mr, Imre Vardar. Right... More

Hi pinetree9999, I read your mesage about the night photography tour you did with Emre and I am thinking how to change that bad experience and leave Turkey with a smiling face and good memory of my country. I agree that dinner at 10 pm. is pretty late. Most of the tours start from the hotels at Blue Mosque area,... More

Our two week trip to Turkey was outstanding and having Ugur as our driver and guide for the trip made it that way. He is extremely personable, knowledgeable and capable. I highly recommend him and his company. nathaji

İ was in İstanbul with 4 other friends from school and two professors back in March for spring break. We had such an amazing time with Bitinya tours. Both of our guides, Uğur and Claire, were very knowledgeable and pleasant to spend time with. We went to the best places to eat meatballs (thanks to Ugur) and had the best... More

I recently spent a fantastic week in Turkey. My partner and I booked a private tour through Bitinya tours. They organised everything for us from the airport transfers, hotels and day tours to our domestic flights to Izmir and Kusadasi. In Istanbul we had a photography tour with Emre whose knowledge of the city and passion for photography were faultless.... More

Bitinya tours organised my whole tour in Istanbul as well as two days in Ephesus. In Istanbul I was fortunate enough to have Betul for three tours and Emre for my photography tours. I was overwhelmed with their knowledge of the local area, a willingness to ensure every question was answered and an attention to detail. I can not speak... More

With a four hour layover Mr. Ugur gave us a wonderful tour of the city in the evening, including dinner and snacks along the way. On top of the great sights and delights, we left with great photos as well, thanks to Mr. Ugur`s tips. So glad we left the airport!

y wife and I spent a great afternoon/evening with Emre. He was genuinely engaging ad showed us sites and places we would never have found in the time we had in Istanbul. I now have photos of Istanbul that I am very proud to show friend and family. Emre cannot be recommended highly enough.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighborhood Profile
Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighborhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
