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

My husband, sister and I arrived in Istanbul via a Greek Island cruise and after one extra night on the ship, added an extra 2 nights to the end of the holiday, flying out at the end of day 3. This meant we had a half day and 3 full days to discover amazing Istanbul. We liaised with Furkan initially... 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!

We got to explore the beauty of Istanbul including the blue mosque, aya Sophia, the grand bazaar and the spice market as well as the amazing... More

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

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.
