All the reviews are true. My husband and I hired Ali's company for two days of private touring in Sultanahmet. The first day we got Ali, and the second day we got Sibil (sorry if I misspelled). They were both extremely knowledgable, personable, and friendly. They provided a continuous flow of history and general information. They answered all our questions... More

My family toured Istanbul and the Bosphorus with Ali and Sercan in August over two days and it was wonderful. To hear the insights of locals and the history of the sights is invaluable. There is no way we would have appreciated our visit as much without their guidance. The fact that they were able to skip the very long... More

Ali was recommended to me by a friend, and I feel so lucky I got to tour Sultanahmet with him! Before I arrived in Istanbul I emailed him to reserve the date and he was very easy to communicate with via email and whatsapp. Once we arrived in Istanbul he didn't mind WhatsApp'ing with us to stay in touch and...

Ali and one of his associates Nilay, took great care of my wife and me during 2 days of private tours in Istanbul. It was a fantastic experience which included Museums, Mosques, the Grand Bazar and a Bosphorus boat trip. They also took care of our of our airport transfers which worked out perfect.

We stopped in Istanbul for a day on our cruise and decided to book our own private tours at each destination as we have 2 tweens and their interests and attention spam are very different to us as adults...!!! Ali was busy so he sent another guide, Sibil to take us around and it was perfect....the kids actually liked Istanbul... More

We spent our second day, Aug 3, of our trip on a day tour with Ali and it was the best choice we could have made for the trip. It was a Monday so Hagia Sophia was closed, but Ali made the appropriate adjustments for us and all was great. Ali's knowledge of Istanbul, it's history and the "little secrets"... More

I set-up our tour through Ali, but, he was out of town and arranged for another tour guide, Mamet. Ali sent us a picture of our guide and where we were going to meet-up. Mamet was knowledgeable, spoke English well and kept the tour moving. I feel like we were able to see more in a shorter period of time... More
