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

Our extended family of 8 (3 seniors, 3 other adults, and 2 girls ages 12 and 9) had 4 fabulous tours with Aykut Ayik's Istanbul Local Guides from Ugur and Sela. We highly recommend using their services! We learned an incredible amount about Muslim culture, Turkey, Istanbul, the Ottoman Empire, the Byzantine Empire, and Christianity. Our 1st afternoon we toured... More

Our first time in Istanbul & lucky to have Kaan as our tour guide. He was very good, patient, & knowledgeable in leading our tour. At the end of day, he spent time taking us to a quality place to sample Turkish delight, baklava, coffee & tea. He's very considerate & mindful of our needs. I would highly recommend Aykut's...

My wife and I and a befriended couple were lucky enough to book an entire day tour with your guide Fahri. None of us had been to Istanbul before, but the whole day was like a trip back into our history classes back in school. Our guide Fahri turned out to be very knowledgeable not only in historic facts about... More

We arrived in Istanbul on July 2 for an overnight stay before our cruise. I had contacted Aykut, and he promptly replied every time I emailed him with all the answers I was looking for. We were met at the airport by a driver that took us to our hotel where Aykut was waiting with our guide Hassan. After we... 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.
