My husband and I were given a superb tour of the one site we did not want to miss during our short stay in Istanbul...Topkapi Palace. Our guide, Abdurrahman Ozkan Bicer (www.constantinopleguide.com) promptly picked us up at our ship for the 3-4 hrs we had available. He walked us through the Hippodrome and past Aya Sofya providing a history of... More

No words can describe how great of a guide Adbil is. Me,my sister and parents decided that we wanted to have a private tour of Istanbul instead of joining one of the tours that the cruise ship we were on was offering. Best decision ever! First Abdil helped us find the hotel near the port where we were docked so... More

We booked a tour to Ephesus through Baltac Tours, Istanbul (Baltac Tours in Istanbul contracted Tayf Tours in Izmir,Turkey.) from Istanbul by air early in the morning returning that same night. There were many aspects of these complicated arrangements that could have gone wrong but it ran like clockwork. Every driver and guide was on the spot at the appointed... More

Our tour guide was Cigdem Goktas whose knowledge and grace in sharing it made our trip to Ephesus the highlight of a wonderful three day tour of Cappadocia and Ephesus. She ensured that our small group was catered for in terms of knowledge sharing and her depth of understanding of the history of the site was exceptional. Her lively personality... More

Gate 1 provided an excellent tour of the country. Our Turkish guide, Erdal, was wonderful with expert knowledge of the country, culture and history. Gate 1 did a great job of not only providing the best guide, but also selecting the hotels, comfortable bus transportation, itinerary and ease of getting to and from the airport. Every contingency was well thought... More
