Istanbul was the highlight of our 2 week trip! I contacted Denizhan Peroz at TransBalkan Tours to book a tour to Ephesus from the port of Izmir. When he mentioned that he could help us book a tour for Istanbul I jumped at the opportunity. A private walking tour is the best way to see everything Istanbul has to offer!... More

We had gone on a Wednesday and on this day and every Wednesday the local growers bring all their fresh goods, fruit , vegetables , cheeses, bread... More

Fantastic two day tour of Istanbul and environs including Bosphorus boat tour. Tour guide Dennis (Denhizan) was extremely knowledgeable and candid regarding istanbul/Turket history and current events. It was certainly worth the time we spent with him.

Before arriving via the NCL Jade in January, our group of three adults and one ten year old child booked a walking tour of Istanbul with Denizhan. It was amazing and I highly recommend this method of seeing the city. Denizhan made it so fun, educational and easy. He met us at the pier and we took the light rail... More

Before taking our cruise, we booked a private Ephesus tour from Transbalkan Tours. We ended up having a very well-trained and experienced tour guide. We spent a magical day at Ephesus and were amazed at the scope of excavation of this ancient city. The pacing was easy to allow for cautious footing as well as plenty of picture taking. We... More

Our family of four arranged a private tour of Ephesus through TransBalkan Tours as a alternative to the bus tour offered by our cruise line. What a great decision!! Denizhan already had a tour booked for that day so our tour was led by his associate, Mehmet. Mehmet did an outstanding job of taking us through the site and explaining... More

I just wanted to quickly add a review for Mehmet! Our cruise had a 4 hour stop in Kusadasi, Turkey and we had booked a tour through TransBalkan tours. I booked months earlier through emailing Mr. Pekoz. We were met by Mehmet Cibikci and his driver at port and spent one of our most memorable 4 hours of our entire... More

If you have one day only in Istanbul, an 8-hour tour with TransBalkan can be arranged to take you to the remarkable Blue Mosque, beautiful St. Sophia Basilica and the busy Grand Bazaar in Old Town, Istanbul. Hire the tour guide online ahead of your trip. A friendly, accommodating guide can meet you at your hotel and take you back.... More

We decided on our European cruise a year ago. Found this company here on Tripadvisor. I have been emailing Mr Pekoz for the past six months and he always answered my questions in a timely manner and assured me that we will be taken care of. We have the group tour of Ephesus, Terrace Houses that included a stop at... More

Everyone we traveled with is still raving about this tour. From the first email until we were back at the ship everything was perfect. This tour with Dennis and the ones we took with Art in Istanbul were the highlight of the trip. Guides really went out of their way to adjust to our pace. There was no pressure to... More
