My wife and daughter had a 24 hour layover and we consulted with and hired Istanbul Custom Tours. Aykut was excellent in helping identify options before the trip. He arranged for transfer from and to the airport. During their stay, their guide, Semih, provided remarkable knowledge and skill as a guide and they had a wonderful yet brief stay in... More

We realized that, unless we hired a guide, it would be impossible to see all we wanted in three days. We contacted Aykut's agency, explained our somewhat specialized interests, and he put us in touch with Selcuk E., who turned out to be the main highlight of our visit. He was warm, welcoming, completely attuned to our interests, and knowledgable... More

Our Guide, Mehmet met us in front of the Kusadasi Port Passenger Terminal. We boarded our own luxury air-conditioned vehicle and drove to Ephesus. Mehmet explained everything we were seeing and gave it substance. After leaving the ancient city of Ephesus, we had a wonderful traditional BBQ lunch. We then had the opportunity to see how the famous rugs are... More

We were very happy with the service provided by our guide Ugur when we visited in late October 2014. He led us to all of the incredible places cited in the tour description at a pace that was comfortable and enjoyable. He knew how to effectively limit the waiting times at these sites by adjusting visit sequences and using his... More

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
