We were on a Mediterranean cruise and booked a tour in July 2015 for a group of 12. Aykut was great in coordinating our tour details by email and we met up with him during the tour also! We had a nice air-conditioned mini-coach and they provided plenty of water for us. Semih gave us a great tour of the... More

Selahattin was stupendous! What a phenomenal guide! We had one day in Istanbul to see and do as much as possible as we were on a cruise. As a family of 6 including 3 teenage girls and my 80 year old mother this was no easy feat. Enter Selahattin! He expertly guided us through the Sultan's Palace on the Bosphorous,... More

I and my wife just came back from an 8 days trip to Turkey. Istanbul Custom Tours arranged everything so nicely that we enjoyed every minute of our staying there. We have already planed to visit Turkey again in next spring. Great thanks to our contact Aykut and all his guides to help us having a wonderful time!

Ephesus was great! Mehmet was very friendly, easy to understand and informative. We had a really wonderful time and learned a ton. Lunch on our excursion was the best meal of our trip! Turkey was a beautiful country and we look forward to returning one day. Aykut made planning our excursion easy. Thanks again!

We were a family of five (My wife, my son, my sister, my Mom and me) from 14 years old to my Mom 85 years. We arrive early in the morning in the Celebrity Reflection cruise. From the very beginning our tour guide Selahattin was so kind and gently and we went to everywhere in Istanbul at our own pace!!!... More

Semih was a very knowledgeable guide and a pleasing companion. His knowledge of how to schedule the visits ahead of the large cruise ships and the ability to skip the lines at the various venues made it possible for us to see all of the highlights of Istanbul during the very short time frame we were there. We also learned... More

From first email Aykut ensured our tour was what we wanted. We chose to do our own tour from our cruise ship so we could see what we wanted and go at our pace. Our guide Yasin was outstanding. His knowledge and understanding of each site meant we not only got the facts but also the answers to our many... More

Our group of 10 people toured Istanbul in July 2015 and we were all very thrilled with our guide, Aykut Ayik. Not only was he prompt, pleasant, and dependable- but highly knowledgeable about the history and sights of Istanbul. He was able to take us to the most interesting sights in the few days we spent in his country and... More

We were between cruise ship and airport, so Aykut organized a bigger vehicle so we could fit all our luggage and also drop us off at the airport at the end of our tour. Umut was a wonderful guide on our short stop over in Istanbul. He was very knowledgeable about all the sites we visited but more importantly knew... More

Our group of 10 people toured Istanbul with Aykut Ayik and it was fabulous. He was so informative...we learned so much about the culture of the Muslim community. Also the history of Turkey was fascinating, from the Mosques to the Palace to the Grand Bazaar. I highly recommend Aykut to enjoy so much of Istanbul. We would love to go... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
