We were delighted with Aykut Ayik from Sophora as our guide in Istanbul. He fashioned a very comprehensive day tour of the attractions we wanted to see with some suggestions of his own - it was fabulous ! He is very knowledgeable, flexible and considerate and four of us enjoyed his company immensely. We could not recommend him more highly... More

We contacted Aykut as per all the great reviews on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately he was booked at the time we were taking our cruise but recommended Selcuk Eracun. We decided at the last minute to take our friends with us on our private tour and I contacted Aykut by email. He responded immediately and this was no problem. Our friends... More

We've booked Aykut for only a few hours in the evening after embarkation for a cruise. We did not have much time but wanted to get a feel for the local food around the port area and we were not disappointed. He is kind , friendly,knowledgeable and fun to hang out with, which is what happened. We hanged out in... More

We booked Aykut many months before our arrival in Turkey. He seemed so flexible and willing to accommodate us....almost too good to be true. And he was!!! We actually had him booked for two days with two different groups of people which I was initially a little concerned about in the event he wasn't to our liking. However, he didn't... More

A very good private tour with knowledgable guide. A good way to see Istanbul if time is limited. No line ups at sights as the guide takes you right in!

I had never been to Istanbul before so contacted Sophora Travel to organise guided tours - and it was the best decision I ever made! I travel quite a lot and usually use a guide book accompanied by my own knowledge of the place I'm visiting. Unfortunately, my knowledge of Turkish history and Istanbul isn't really up to scratch so... More

After a disappointing overnight for my husband due to food poisoning I ventured out with Necip on my own. He met me at our hotel and proceeded to head to old town. We covered Hagia Sofia, the Cisterne, the Hippodrome, the Blue Mosque and the Arabat Bazzar. As well as finding me the perfect carpet. He was friendly, easy to... More

We had a guided tour with Necip in the mosque : perfect ! Good rythm, good explanations, not too many, just the right tempo ! If you buy tickets from Necip you don't have to line up ! So you save probably more than 30 mn !

I went with Sophora tour agency to book our Cappadoccia tour. We were three young ladies out in Turkey on a budget. Sophora took care of EVERYTHING for us. Even as it was the end of Ramadan, which meant it was hard to find us a bus, Sophora pulled through with their many contacts and got us the last three... More
