Aykut did a terrific job in helping us plan our trip to Turkey. His email promptness is an indication of his professionalism and he delivered tours that exceeded our expectations. He provided everything he said he was going to provide us to make our Turkey experience memorable. Private tours is a great way to travel. Aykut has highly professional associates/guides... More

I was in Istanbul with my husband on november; the first day we arrived very early so in order to kill some time until our room was ready, we decided to book a Bosphorus Cruise with an agency advertised at the hotel where we stayed. It was dissappointing, as the guide spoke very bad English and was very hard to... More

Istanbul Local Guides My husband and I recently traveled to Istanbul and want to enthusiastically and unconditionally recommend Istanbul Local Guides personal guide service. Istanbul was not our primary destination (we went on to a tour of Egyptian tombs and temples with Dr.Zahi Hawass) but rather a point to stop and recover from our journey from Houston. After the wonderful... More

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

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

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 recently returned from Istanbul. We reserved a mini-van for 4 - it was very new and immaculate with room for maybe eight. Our guide, Selcuk, was FABULOUS. He was so helpful and knowledgeable. At the end of our tour, we had to detour to the small rail to get back to our ship because of an unbelievable traffic jam... More
