We were 2 families constituting a total of 8 members. I took a calculated risk of not booking my trip to Cappadocia in advance.I strolled into Mr Metin's office leisurely with the intention of gaining first hand idea of the approximate tour itinerary and costs involved. Mr Metin's depth experience and knowledge must have played its role, on top of... More

So so good. Furkran was such an amazing guide. Kept my mum (age 60) and I (age 27) interested -- and we are not history nerds! Slowed down and picked up the pace as and when we needed to. Skipped all the lines. Had a lovely lunch at the end. Provided informative and detailed historical context. Well worth it.

This tour of 11 people + one tour guide, visited the Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque and included lunch. We were met at our cruise port and returned on time! Because this was during Ramadan, our guide rearranged our itineray so we could visit the Blue Mosque as it opened at 2:30. Without this tour,... More

I was transiting through Istanbul from Asia to Europe and found this tour company. My guide was very knowledgeable and personable. We talked about all manner of things during our time together. He was a big football fan too. We had a lot of fun during the day. An added bonus is that he made all reservations in advance so... More

We used Istanbul Guided Private Tours in June 2015. Had a wonderful day with Furkan as our guide. Setting up the tour I dealt with Metin who was incredibly responsive. Almost to the point where I thought it was to good to be true. Furkan was waiting for us in our lobby 10 minutes early. As a person who thinks... More

Using Trip Advisor I called 3 tour companies the day before my wife and I arrived in Istanbul. Metin immediately responded and answered my phone call. They arranged for a private yacht charter with crew and our guide Sherif for a fantastic voyage up the Bospherous with great commentary by Sherif. Then Sherif joined us on Day 2 for a... More

We used this crew in May 2015 and there were 7 of us in a private van that easily accommodated us all and was well air conditioned. Our guide, Sybel, was fantastic and was waiting for us at the pier even though we were not allowed to disembark for 1 hour after the time I organised for pick up. We... More

We enjoyed our visit to Istanbul and the tours offered by your group. Your guides were well-organized and knowledgeable regarding the history and culture of the city. We were also offered beautiful views from secret locations throughout the city. Thank you for making our visit to Istanbul especially memorable.
