We had only one full day in Istanbul and our guide, Selahattin, helped us make the most of it, truly exceeding our expectations. His vast knowledge of the city's history was impressive. I highly recommend Istanbul Custom Tours for anyone planning to visit this historic city!

Necip showed us Istanbul over three full days. His knowledge and manner were excellent - we have no hesitation in recommending him.

I finally got to realise one of my dreams by crossing the river Bosphorus, by the Galata Bridge to set foot in Asia, before returning over the same bridge and back into Europe. In my view if you go to Istanbul this has to be close to the top of your list of things to do whilst there.

I had read the reviews of this tour company and emailed Aykut about a tour. My husband and I had 1 full day in Istanbul before travelling on to Cappadocia. We had been to Istanbul once before and didn't want to repeat certain sites as we knew there was so much more to see. Necip was our guide for the... More

We contacted Aykut as per all the great reviews on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately he was booked at the time we were taking our cruise but recommended Selcuk Eracun. We decided at the last minute to take our friends with us on our private tour and I contacted Aykut by email. He responded immediately and this was no problem. Our friends... More

From the initial enquiry to the final itinerary organised by Aykut, to our 3 day tour with Selahattin our visit to Istanbul was fantastic and worth every penny. This was a first visit for our party of 6 retirees and we were ALL impressed with the city and our guide. Selahattin not only tailored the sightseeing to suit the group... More

Turkiye....My first awesome experience taking a journey outside my home country. Such a helpful and resourceful guide we have for the entire long-beautiful journey, who show us more places than we expected (in itinerary). We went to Istanbul - Canakkale - Kusadasi - Konya - Pamukkale - Cappadocia - Bolu - Istanbul again. Alhamdulillah.. The weather is on our side,... More

Couldn't have asked for a better tour of Istanbul and Capadoccia. Had personal guide in each location. Everything was well looked after and taken into account. Hotels recommended were even better than advertised. the Capadoccia guide, Mehmet, was truly outstanding. Above and beyond the call of duty. Must also comment on the Agros Cave Hotel in Capadoccia. Truly unbelievablely wonderful... More
