We just did the full day private tour of Istanbul with Furkan. It was excellent. We highly recommend it. Furkan is very knowledgeable and he made the 7 hours we spent together very entertaining. We had lunch at a very nice restaurant nearby (lunch cost not included). Furkan is helped in his tour by the beautiful Blue Mosque and Aya... More

We booked a days tour with Tarik directly after reading the reviews on TA. As planned Tarik met us at our hotel on time and our first impression was very positive and we knew we had made a good choice. We are a family with 3 boys aged 10, 14 and 16 so not easy to keep their interest up... More

His insight on history and current affairs in Turkey made us love Turkey more :) . He is very spot on with the timings of the tour too! Eg duration of a drive etc :) . In the future if... More

Our group of 26 had an exceptional experience with Tarik. He arranged and guided a phenomenal tour for us in Istanbul and made every accommodation possible -- not an easy thing to do given that our group had 15 children between 6 and 14 years old and 11 adults. He also arranged for a guide and driver in Kusadasi/Ephesus a... More

Furkhan took our group of 12 around Istanbul and the countryside for 8 days. He was very aware of what we all wanted to experience and I could highly recommend him to anybody. He made our trip one of the best holidays I could possibly have had.

Furkan took my friend and I on an extensive tour around the Istanbul sites. He was very knowledgable with a great sense of humour. A very pleasurable and insightful tour I would highly recommend, thank you for the wonderful memories.

Touring Istanbul with Furkan was like seeing the city with a really knowledgeable, nice, humorous friend. He met us at the airport, arranged a Turkish bath after a long flight, and spent the next two days not only guiding us around sites such as the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and Hajia Sophia, but giving us insight as to the politics...

We took a 1 day tour of Istanbul with Furkan in June prior to embarking on our cruise. I "found" him through Tripadvisor and he proved to be just as excellent a tour guide as the reviews had said. He responded promptly to our enquiry and also to any other questions we had prior to our departure. Furkan also organised... More

We took a day and a half tour with Tarik when our cruise ship docked on June 24 2014. We began with a tram to the grand bazaar, followed by a ferry to the Asian side and a walk around the streets tasting local delicacies. As a change from ship food we had asked If they could recommend a local... More

Visiting Turkey for the first time, we wanted to experience the sites and the real Turkey and not waste our time creating itineries on the run. On recommendation we engaged Furkan and we're not disappointed. He provided a fabulous programme and kept us interested and informed ( we would have missed so much without him). Furkan was kind and considerate... More
