We arranged the tour well in advance including requesting a kosher meal as we booked a full day. Our tour guide was Alp who I can not speak highly enough of. His English was exceptional and we were picked up on time which are the least of the compliments I have for him. His knowledge of Judaism was extraordinary which... More

My husband and I enjoy taking this type of tour in each city we visit. I must say that our tour with Alp and his equally engaging driver Hakan was one of the most informative. Alp was very knowledgeable and had a wonderful delivery. On each stop we were all greeted in a warm, welcomed manner...a sign that Alp is... More

Booked upon the recommendation of Trip Advisor - Excellent tour, guide, driver. Comfortable van picked us up promptly as agreed at our hotel. Alp is an extremely knowledgeable, likeable guide. Well spoken. Respectful. Friendly. Although he is not Jewish, he was obviously known and carried himself respectfully in the synagogues and museum. He was truly interested in sharing his knowledge...

A friend and I took the Jewish Heritage Tour yesterday in Istanbul. This was my second time and I really enjoyed the experience and the learning again. Hakan and Alp picked us up right on time and whisked us off to our first stop. Because of the rainy weather and the hills of the city, they drove us as close... More

The tour was excellent. The experience of visiting the Ashkenazi synagogue during morning prayer took the tour from sightseeing to spiritual experience. The guide was flexible enough to meet the needs of the small group. Everything was what was expected and more. Thoroughly recommend this tour.

We took the half day Jewish experience tour with Alp and found him to be extremely knowledgeable, fun to be with and generous with his time. We were able to see and experience more that the four hours would suggest because Alp coordinated drop of and pick ups with Hakan who drove for us. We were very pleased to have... More

Friends of ours had taken this tour a couple of years ago and suggested it when they heard we were going to Istanbul. We booked the tour with ease. The tour had a nice pace with just enough walking and stopped at several interesting spots. We were picked up at our hotel on time. Alf, our guide, and the driver... More

I had a one-day layover in Istanbul and wanted to see the Jewish sights as well as the usual top Istanbul attractions. I was met in the AM by Alp, who was knowledgeable and very personable. We went to two synagogues and two Jewish neighborhoods, as well as some other nearby attractions. I was then handed off to a second... More
