Fun, educational walk on lessor known streets of Istanbul
Lutfullah provided a very professional tour of the Asian side of Istanbul. He was very knowledgeable on the history and local customs and he was a personable, entertaining guide. We enjoyed the opportunity to ride the metro and ferry boat and enjoyed walking around areas of Istanbul that are not often seen by tourists.

A five star tour with Lutfi
Jul 2021 • Solo
I had just landed a few hours before the tour start and was wondering on cancelling it in favour of some shut eye. Now am so glad that I didn't as I might have missed out on a truly enriching experience in the Asian side of Istanbul.

The tour started with a pickup at my hotel by Mr Lutfi and we took the metro + ferry to Kadikoy. After a wall through the winding streets and Moda neighborhood, we had lunch at a good restaurant in Uskudar. It was good food. After lunch, we went to see the Maiden tower and walked through Uskudar while visiting mosques and museums.

It was a very good your. Mr Lutfi was very knowledgeable and adapts to your requirements easily. He was also very helpful and even assisted with some personal errands as well! I highly recommend this tour and also advise to take a day out of your time in Turkey to visit the Asian side of Istanbul.

Best tour!
We had Cengiz as our guide and thanks to him, we had a great experience. We had the opportunity to explore the Asian side of Istanbul, the food, walk on the street market... everything is going to be a happy memory for us. Istanbul and the hospitality of the people there are a great factor to make our experience unforgettable ❤. Thank you Cengiz. You deserve ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ and we highly recommend this tour.

great tour, but a bit overpriced
Aug 2019
We wanted to go to the asian side, and we did not book any tour in Istanbul. So, we did a tour for the Asian Side, so we can have a bit of history and insights about a fun part of the city.

First, the area. YOU SHOULD GO TO THE ASIAN SIDE. The asian side is great for eating, walking, and people watching. We loved the area and if we return, we would go 2-3 days to asian side.

Second, the tour guide. Our tour guide was great. He was knowledgeable and with lot of insights of the city. He gave us a lot of good recommendations for eating and drinking in the asian and european side. Also, he gave us answers about all our questions about history and culture of Turkey and Istanbul. He was like a local friend that talked about the city, and we enjoyed that.

Third, the tour. The tour has a good route and balance between history and places that cool at this moment. However, the tour is a bit long and overpriced. We paid more for this tour than booking a private boat trip for four hours.

A fascinating and entertaining view of Istanbul's history
Aug 2018
Our tour was simply wonderful. It included all that is advertised. We enjoyed visiting the mosques, mausoleums , and most especially, the side streets, the cafes and sampling what must be the local like. We were so delighted. Our guide, Ilker was most knowledgeable, and his presentations to me were delightful and informative. How we enjoyed visiting the gems of Ukudar, learning about Turkish Islamic archtecture, the architect Sanan, and his work for his queens.

But more that that Ilker truly looked after us, and painstakingly helped us choose gifts (wading through acres of tee-shirts), and was just an all-out great, great, guy! A wonderful host to one of the world's heritage capitals.
