We are both pensioners and my wife was having some difficulty walking. Semi paced our tour perfectly, stopping when necessary and showing us the important places one... More

My husband and I visited Istanbul recently and were met by Sam at our cruiseship. Because my husband has mobility problems we had decided to hire a private guide rather than take an excursion with the ship. What a wonderful guide to have. We would recommend Sam to anyone travelling to Istanbul. Sam appreciated my husband's difficulties and could not... More

I recommend Sam wholeheartedly to anyone who needs a guide in Istanbul. Because I was travelling alone and considering my own hopeless sense of direction and the limited time I had to see the many wonderful sights in Istanbul, I decided a tour guide was what I needed even though my had some concerns at the idea of being lead...

My wife and I were very fortunate to have toured the Old City on a recent trip to Istanbul. We did not know what to expect but Sam made the tour a wonderful experience for us. He was friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the old city's history and a most pleasant person to be with. His experience was very useful... More

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. I should not have worried one bit because we found Sam... More

My mother and I were in Istanbul with a group and had a day free to explore. A guide at Hagia Sophia referred us to Sam who happened to have had a tour cancel. We had a relaxing and informative day with Sam and would recommend him as a guide to anyone visiting Turkey. His English and knowledge of the... More

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
