Eda is one of the remarkable guides I have experienced in global travels -- in that not only does she find you off-the-beaten path restaurants and places to stay in advance of your trip with tremendous patience, she makes the great historic, cultural and art centers come to life. The food she finds, in a city teaming with both outstanding... More

If you have a spare day in Istanbul and want to see the sights, learn a bit about the history, experience Turkish cuisine and meet the locals then Eda's Culinary Tour is a MUST do. For a group of 8 girls with terrible hangovers this turned out to be the perfect way to see the city. Eda was so full... More

Eda took us on a fantastic Culinary tour of Istanbul. She was extremely knowledgeable, answered all of our questions and accommodated 8 hangovers! The amount and quality of food we consumed was incredible. The highlight for me however was visiting the Turkish Carpet stall in the Grand Bazaar, we were treated to a fantastic display of beautiful rugs and their... More

Eda organized our trip to Turkey and did a fantastic job! We are vegetarian, were travelling with young kids and were going to three cities in seven days. Eda booked all our hotels and ensured that we were in a suite so that kids could stay with us. She also booked our hotels, transport and guides in Cappadocia and Ephesus,... More

We spent two lovely days in the company of our tour guide Eda. She was a lovely knowledgeable companion who showed us many must see sites but also took us to out of the way places that we would not have experienced. Eda was very helpful in negotiating the Grand Bazaar and stirred us to reputable stores. We loved all... More

Thanks to Eda and istanbulite, I am satisfied leaving Istanbul with a stronger understanding and admiration for the Istanbul lifestyle than I could have possibly discovered on my own. Eda took us through the historic sites with an abundance of knowledge and passion. We spent the rest of the time touring neighbourhoods, visiting cafes and shops and getting out on... More

Istanbulite organized our company trip to Istanbul, taking away all the hassle involved in arranging such a trip for a group of 16 people. Airport transfers, restaurants, boat tour, guide ….. Eda was very helpful, accommodating and patient! Mr Tolon was our guide for two days in Istanbul. Everybody was very impressed by the vast knowledge he has about the... More

Such a pleasure to have Eda take us around the major sites of Istanbul. My husband and I didn't have the time to learn and understand the history. She carefully explained what we were seeing with an historians accuracy. It was worth the price.

What an amazing trip!!! First a perfectly organized sailing trip through the Aegaen Sea with the best crew you could imagine and then Eda guided us through Istanbul and blew again our mind: from a privately chartered yacht tour with champagne on board, sunset dinners, great clubs, gourmet restaurants, Great Bazar, Blue Mosque... To awesome breakfast places all accompanied with... More

We spent two excellent days with istanbulite tours. Sinan showed us the sights of Istanbul we would never have found on our own, often with no other tourists in sight. Did the round trip from south to north on the European side, then across to Asia for lunch and back to Europe by ferry. On the second day we were... More
