“True Blue Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

After much research, my wife and I decided to book True Blue Tours for a private, two and one-half day tour of the city of Istanbul. We were extremely pleased with our choice as the guide and the attractions turned out to be excellent. Our itinerary included all of the major attractions within the city, and our guide was very knowledgeable, spoke excellent English, punctual for managing our tour, and was a very warm, flexible and helpful person. The autos used for transport were very new and comfortable, as well. The lunches included with our touring days were also very good, with restaurants chosen in different locations to give an exposure to different areas of the city. On the last day, the Hamdy Restaurant overlooking the Bosphorus River was our spot and it left us with an everlasting memory of a beautiful city. Our thanks to Ruta Yuksukcuoglu, our booking agent and to Ahmet Laleoglu, our wonderful guide, for making our Istanbul visit so very meaningful and memorable.

Hi DogProf, Thank you for your kind words concerning the experience that you had with True Blue Tour here in Istanbul. Like you, most people research quite a bit before deciding on whom to work with in planning their holiday in Turkey. Thank you for putting your confidence in us. We are well aware that your positive words will serve to help others in their decision making process as well. Ahmet does a super job in guiding and Ruta can't be beaten as a sales agent. We are lucky to have such a committed team here at TBT. We remember that you encountered less than perfect service in Ephesus and we appreciate your having informed us allowing us the opportunity to make amends. Things can and do go wrong occasionally, of course, and we implore our guests to let us know as soon as they feel something is not right so that we can FIX THE PROBLEM. Your feedback helps.
Best wishes for 2013, Eyup

“Excellent tour of Istanbul”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

My fiance and I met Yilmaz early in the morning at our hotel, and we were lucky enough to have him to ourselves as we toured Istanbul. We went up the Pierre Loti funicular, to the Rustem Pasha Mosque, through the Egyptian Spice Market and along the Bosphorus on a tourist boat. Yilmaz's knowledge of the history of Turkey and the specific areas was phenomenal, and he was incredibly personable as well. Booking the tour was easy and reliable, and I strongly recommend anyone book a tour with True Blue Tours when visiting Turkey.

“Excellent Tour organizing Agency”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

I would highly recommend "True Blue Tour" agency to anyone looking for a top grade and efficient agency. I along with my wife really enjoyed the whole day trip conducted by them. They don't take more than 14 people in a group. We were 6 and they organized the trip as enthusiastically as they would have done for a bigger group. The guide was excellent, with a good command over English language and knowledge of history. His commentary and narrations about the monuments and the places made the trip really memorable.

“Highly Recommended Tour Agent when you visit to Turkey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Me n my husband (travelled on Nov 2012) and on behalf of my mom n sister (travelled on Sep 2012) had a very very excellent seven day travelling at Turkey organized by True Blue Tour. A one day city tour @Istanbul with a full-pack of informations about Hagia Sophia, Tokapi Palace, Bazaar etc with a great fluent English energetic tour guide. And yet we also have a wonderful times too with their sub-contract agents at Cappadocia, Izmir, Pamukkale and Antalya with such an impressive hospitality, on time transfers, great systems connecting and service. Very good accommodations arrangements, great luxury minibus and great information. What can we say more? As we have a very great memorable times at Turkey. And will definitely visit Turkey again. Thanks to all your great works and team-works. Keep it up.
