21 August 2014 We are a group of 6 adults who used Guided Istanbul Tours for our day ashore while on a Mediterranean cruise. Our guide for the day was Tarik, and we cannot recommend him highly enough! He made sure that our day was all we could have hoped for. Whilst we had booked the standard tour, he was... More

Our personal guide was Latif who met us at our hotel and walked with us to all the important sites telling about each one and the area. His knowledge of the history of Istanbul, Christianity and Muslim belief helped us to understand the art work, and his overall knowledge of the area and sights was excellent. We would recommend him... More

Furkan was an excellent tour guide! I've been on quite a few tours and Furkan was one of the best, if not the best, tour guides I have ever had. He was my tour guide for a 12 day tour of Turkey. During our tour, he was extremely knowledgeable about the places we visited. He gave great advice on places... More

We are just finishing a great two week tour of Turkey organised by Tarik Saylan. It has been a most rewarding trip pitched at the right level of information. In addition Tarik has a wealth of contacts throughout Turkey. One day you are having lunch at a 5 star hotel overlooking the Pigeon Valley in Cappedocia for 20TL then you... More

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

I did a tour with Furkan in August and he was excellent. Every site we visited he knew the history and cool interesting facts that you may not read about. He also gave us great insite into Turkish culture and the views of the young population. Furkan was also friendly, fun and also gave great recommendations on where to go... More
