My husband and I, along with two of our good friends, visited Istanbul in September 2014 and hired Tarik as our guide. Tarik was a wealth of information and proved to be a great guide and we enjoyed spending the day with him. We do not hesitate to give him a very high recommendation.

We were getting off the cruise ship at the terminal and decided to find an english speaking cab driver. He charged us $100 for the day for 4 of us. Nice vehicle and he took us over a bridge to the Asia side of Istanbul. The drive is so pretty seeing all the gardens, decorations in bloom along the way... More

Furkan was our tour guide during our trip to Turkey in August. We couldn't have been in better hands. Not only is Furkan incredibly knowledgeable about the history and culture of all the amazing sites around Istanbul and Turkey, he provided a local context that you can't get by traveling around and site-seeing on your own. He has an incredibly... More

We spent two days with Furkan Gokcel in August 2013. He was the perfect guide for us, with classic tourism skills and an intimate knowledge of local events and politics. At the time, I was mobility challenged, due to back issues. Furkan modified our tours to accommodate me by adding vehicular transportation, as appropriate. Ask him take you to the... More

We only had a few hours in Istanbul and wanted to see as much as we could. Our guide was incredibly - he took us to all the known sighs and a few of his own. He made us feel very welcome and at ease. I can't wait to go back!

Furkan is professional, knowledgeable and reliable. He put our needs first and looked at accommodating requests to the best of his ability. He knows the ins and outs of Istanbul and exceeded our expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed Istanbul and managed to see everything we wanted to. We highly recommend his fantastic service!
