Daily city tours in Istanbul with private guidance. Our tours include the most visited sites in Istanbul such as St. Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace as well we also offer you many types of tour options that are totally different than the other itineraries you have been offered. All of our tours are conducted by dynamic, licensed and expert local guides with many years of experience behind them. They are attentive and keen to share their knowledge about the sights and Turkish culture. Flexible private tours offer many unforeseen benefits - having a personal guide means that a tour itinerary can be easily modified to pursue newly developing interests, spontaneous events, or special requests on the go and at a pace that suits you.

Prior to the tour, I had to make many changes and they were extremely flexible with me. Our guide was knowledgeable, professional, and allowed us to move at our own pace. My college-age daughter can be easily bored, but she was fascinated with the history and all the sights we saw. We did the classical tour and it was excellent.... More

Tour guide took us to some not so interesting but clearly popular places. He did not go with us to most of them. The best part was the Bosphorus cruise and the many interesting buildings seen on the Asian and European sides of Istanbul. Guide did not give much information, nor did he seem interested in customizing the tour. Nothing... More

We had a couple of days touring Istanbul with Furkan en route to the Stans. He took us everywhere we wanted to go and more, was very knowledgeable (including and especially about Turkish food), and beat the cruise ship crowds at every one of the popular attractions. He was considerate of my husband's slow walking, and even helped us retrieve... More

We had a wonderful experience with Istanbul Guided Private Tours. From the very beginning when I emailed them - we received a prompt response and had tours designed for us that were customized to our desires. There was a driver waiting for us at the airport to take us to our hotel and the following day there again at 5:00am... More

Our visit in Istanbul was for 3 days only and we were looking for a way to maximize our time there. Istanbul Guided Tours is the answer! We did 2 tours. The Classical and the Food Tour. During the Classical Tour we did so much...most importantly we did not stand in line ...which is a reason to give on entering... More

We were a group of three people and we had just one day where we wanted to see and do as much as possible. The communication before we arrived was not only prompt, but responded to our questions and gave us great suggestions based on their experience, In our day Furkan made sure we saw and experienced everything that we...

Here's hoping this would be the 240th. My family of 7 folks were looking to tour Istanbul - with 2 seniors, 2 teenagers. We had A LOT of demands - door to door pick up from airport, choices of own hotels, detour to Santorini midway (though no tour included, they only do Istanbul), flight to Cappadocia instead of driving long...

This tour was exactly what I was looking for in going to Istanbul. My tour guide, Sibel, arrived at my hotel at 9am, and we were out until 3p. She was incredibly knowledgable, and was able to fill in all the details for the places that we visited. The tour included the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sofia, the Palace and... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
