My husband and I and my sister and her husband booked three and a half days touring Istanbul through Istanbul Custom Tours. It is amazing how much you can see and do and how much you can learn doing it this way rather than on your own. This was all set up by email and everything was as promised. Our... More

Aykut was quick to respond to my email request for tour information and replied promptly to all of my pre-booking questions. We enjoyed a full day tour of Istanbul with our guide Neysema. She was very knowledgeable and more than willing to share with us the great culture of the city. She also made great recommendations for things we could... More

We arranged airport transfers in addition to two full day tours with Aykut via email. He was very knowledgeable and responded quickly to all of our questions. Our guide, Fahri, was also well-versed and informative. His English was excellent. Everything was exactly as described/promised. We have used many private guides in our travels over the years; this experience was among... More

The tour was wonderful! They really squeeze Istanbul highlights into two days! It was perfect! Selcuk Eracun was an excellent, knowledgeable, relaxe, friendly guide. We visited Ayasofya, Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, Cistern, the Hippodrome, etc. It was totally worth having an expert explain details that we would not have otherwise known to look for. He was intuitively responsive to... More
