We booked this company for our tour of Istanbul June 2014 (yes my review is a tad late!). We were met promptly when we got off of our ship by our tour guide, Bill as we called him! We had a fabulous informative tour of Istanbul. Saw everything we were promised and more. Bill, our guide, even helped us negotiate... More

Our family of four took a 2-day private tour of Istanbul with Abdil from Turkey Tours. I cannot say enough about what a great time we had. Abdil showed us all the major sites, helped us shop, took us to a restaurant with "the best lentil soup in Istanbul", and went the extra mile in everything he did. His knowledge... More

My family and I travel a lot. We use guides when we are short on time or just need the historical background on a place. Abdil was awesome! He was great with my pre-teen kids, as well as my 67 year old mother. His son had a medical issue during our tour, and he still remained calm and focused on... More

We have just returned from a fam trip to Turkey and I must say that our trip was amazing due to the knowledgeable and professionalism of our guide, Hasan Oral. Not forgetting our very skilled and safe driver Mr Kadir Senyigit. They have been most accommodating and their professionalism and communication skills are highly commendable. Hope to visit Turkey again... More

On a recent visit to Istanbul I booked a trip to Gallipoli with Turkey Tours. I had looked at the bus trips available but felt I wanted more flexibility in the day. I travelled with a friend, we are both in our 60s, and didn’t want to spend over 12 hours in a bus. It was easy to make the... More

After reading Trip Advisor, I emailed Ozkan. He set up a great itinerary for four of us. The choice of hotels were great. The guides were wonderful. We had Hasan on the first day and Abdil the second in Istanbul. So knowledgeable about everything we inquired about. We have just finished our third day after flying to Cappadoccia--all arranged by... More

Sometimes it is quite difficult to write a review when everything is perfect and this is certainly one of those times. The dynamic duo tag team of brothers Ozkan and Abdil, were a pleasure. Their knowledge and enthusiasm added to the charm of this wonderful country. We made all the arrangements via email with Ozkan, and they delivered what was... More

Our 2 day tour of Istanbul turned out to be an absolute success because of our guide Abdil. He was very personable, knowledgeable and took the time necessary at every stop to make sure all of our questions were answered. We can't imagine how we could have truly experienced Istanbul and the Historical sites without his expertise!

We(2 couples) scheduled a 1 day personal tour in Istanbul with Abdil as our guide and would highly recommend him. His English and knowledge were excellent. Over a 21 day cruise we had various levels of excursions, but Abdil was the best guide. We had an excellent lunch at a local restaurant coupled with the opportunity to see the major... More
