Sam was asked to show me round on a recent trip to Istanbul - my first. He proved to be very knowledgeable and was very pleasant company too. We ended firm friends after the 2 days I spent in his company. Another reason to get a guide to accompany you is that you avoid the queues as tour guides have... More

When visiting Istanbul for the first time, I admit to being worried that I would not be able to "see" everything I wanted to see, to know what it is like to live in Istanbul, to sample the best foods and crafts of Turkey, and to negotiate the city.

Our travel agent at home had arranged the day with Sam. He met us at the dock, and spent the day showing us his wonderful city... More

We had the distinct pleasure of having Sam as our guide when we visited Istanbul in May 2013. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 days in his very capable hands and he was more than able to tell us ALL about the history and culture of this magnificent city. Sam made the guide books come alive with his understanding and love... More
