We chose to sign up with "My Local Guide" tours for 3 consecutive days of private tours starting with the food tour, "Taste of Turkey... More

Thank you Latif Eseler for your excellent guided walking tour of Istanbul on the 6th August. I recommend to travellers if your time is short as you get to speak with a local about what to see, you learn a lot about the culture and can ask a million questions which were all answered patiently, honestly and interestingly. Great introduction... More

We booked the Heritage and Secrets Tours with My Local Guide Istanbul, which provided an excellent introduction to the city in a small group environment (our tours had no more than 6 people on them). Our guides, Salih for Heritage and Latif for Secrets, were very friendly and knowledgable, patient with questions, and flexible whenever something came up and the... More

We took one tour and were so happy with the company and the way they handle the tour that we took 2 more tours with them. All of 3 tours were different, very special and... More

This was a great way to see the city in a short amount of time. Our guide was super friendly and knowledgable about the sights and was fun to chat with as we walked around the city. You get to see so much in such a short amount of time, so it's a great thing perhaps to do on one... More

Our guide, Latif, spoke very good English and was willing to answer lots of questions about the city. It was a really good use of a morning and we saw many sights that we probably would... More
