Last year, we decided to go to Turkey for our winter holidays in December. We had 10 days and I booked our flights. Then I began looking into the details. We knew we wanted to go to Istanbul, Cappadocia and Ephesus. How to get around was a big question mark. I explored buses, trains, driving and realised it was too... More

We had the same guide all 3 days which was nice. no complaints though I do think the day to the Asia side was a bit light on stuff. I really like that we did not have to pre pay anything or fill out some long stupidly designed form that some tours places make you do. I think when factoring... More

We had a wonderful full day tour of the Sultanahmet area, including all the major sites. Semih was an excellent guide - he was friendly, flexible, knowledgeable and great with my two teenagers. Akyut replied quickly to all my emails and answered all my questions in advance of our trip. I highly recommend this company.

My wife and I recently visited Istanbul as a layover trip just for a day. Our flight landed after 11:30 Am. We had a very short time to cover all the main sites of Sultanahmet area. I contacted many private tour operators before the trip and Aykut was the only person who said he will be able to show me... More

After reading many positive reviews of Istanbul Custom Tours, I decided to inquire about a three day guide and driver in Istanbul. Akyut was quick to respond to all of my emails and delivered on everything he promised. For our three day private tour, our guide Hasan was excellent. He followed the itinerary loosely, but was quick to adapt to... More

Aykut from Istanbul Local Guides offered excellent personal service in arranging our day tour and ensuring all went well. Unfortunately our plane was delayed so our tour had to be truncated but our guide Semih could not have been more responsive and hospitable in ensuring we made the most of the brief time in this fascinating city. Semih has excellent... More

Akyut always replied amazingly quickly to my emails and arranged a great tour for us with Istanbul local Semih. Semih was friendly and knowledgeable and gave us a full-day tour of the city including all the main sights. We felt privileged to have such a great tour of the town. I would highly recommend this company, which provided a faultless... More

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
