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

The tour was wonderful! They really squeeze Istanbul highlights into two days! It was perfect! Selcuk Eracun was an excellent, knowledgeable, relaxe, friendly guide. We visited Ayasofya, Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, Cistern, the Hippodrome, etc. It was totally worth having an expert explain details that we would not have otherwise known to look for. He was intuitively responsive to... 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

Although the tour was only half day, we visited the main attractions (Blue Mosque, Palace etc.), learnt a lot of the history of the city (clear and lively explanation of the... More

We recently returned from our holiday in Turkey and have nothing but high praise for Istanbul Custom Tours/Private Day Tours. In addition to our stay in Istanbul, the company also provided a driver & guide for our time in Ephesus as well. We emailed them 6 months prior to our trip and they were quick to reply anytime we contacted... More
