          Emre was an amazing guide! He took us all throughout Istanbul and let us personalize the pace of our visit and in which order we wanted to see different places. He also was very knowledgeable about the history of Istanbul, and shared lots of interesting anecdotes. Highly recommend!

          MAKE SURE to ask for Hilal. She takes care of you like family!
          This tour is totally worth it. We truly did not know what to do when we were planning our Istanbul experience, so we took a chance with Istanbul Guided Tours. Landed with an amazing tour guide- Hilal. MAKE SURE to ask for Hilal. She takes care of you like family! She took us through Istanbul both from a tourist and local perspective. Truly value for money.

          Wonderful 2 days in Istanbul!
          I arranged the tour in a very last minute and The agent was very helpful! My guide Öykü contacted me right after the confirmation to arrange the itinerary with me. Öykü is a very energetic and professional. she has great knowledge in history and she is very accommodating. The restaurants that she has chosen for me was so delicious and with stunning views of istanbul! If you only in Istanbul for a short period of time, This is a must go tour!

          Fantastic tour!
          Incredible experience! We could management the tour as our preference. The guide was so profesional and friendly. He spoke Spanish like native and he explained us many things about the history of Istanbul. We asked him about another things like restaurants, mezquitas, museum, etc. and he advised us too. I recommend it 100% (the driver also so profesional)

          Solo in Istanbul
          Kemal was one of the best guides I've had in a long time. He is very knowledgeable about everything we saw today. More importantly he made me feel safe, and that is what I valued the most. He made recommendations to me for other spots I might be interested in and he listened to exactly what I needed. If you have the chance I highly recommend you request him, because he just made it easy. Thank you so much for a great service, after dealing with him I feel like I've gained a lifelong friend.

          Ozan was a fantastic guide
          We did a one day tour with Ozan during the week ..He collected us at our hotel and from the very first meeting with him he was so professional and kind to deal with .. His knowledge was just amazing . he tailors the day to suit you .. I personally am not a big history person but he made the whole day so interesting and relaxing .. Nothing was a problem .. I am so glad I requested Ozan because of previous reviews .. He made our day brilliant

          Fantastic 2 Day Tour
          We had a 2 day tour which was led by the brilliant Kemal. Day 1 was the Dolmabahce Palance, Taksim Square, Bosphorus Cruise and the Spice Bazaar. Day 2 was Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, Grand Bazaar and the Hippodrome. What a 2 days! It was absolutely stunning. We saw genuinely jaw dropping and unique things, explained in fantastic detail by Kemal who was the best tour guide we have had in any city. He took time to get on with us absolutely keyed into the British sense of humour. We found, with Kemal guiding, some great local restaurants for lunch on both days. It is safe to say that good foo was vital as we walked our feet off. Must see highlights were the Cistern, Topkapi Palace (including the Sacred Relics) and Hagia Sophia. We brought thousands of years of achievement to life in the incredible city of Istanbul. Thank you to Kemal and Guided Istanbul Tours!

          Highly recommend taking a personal tour guide as a solo traveler!!
          15/10 personal tour guide with Goktug. I was able to skip the lines with him, experience local restaurants, and experience the Asian side of Istanbul. There is a lot of walking but it is 100% worth it. You get to experience Istanbul much better than if you go around on your own.

          2 day Amazing Istanbul with Ceren
          First time to Instanbul. The amazing Ceren had us organised on a walking tour day 1 and with van on day 2. Ceren's amazing knowledge of Istanbul coupled with the spectacular sights made it unforgettable. Thanks to Ceren we had the right combination of food, coffee stops and chocolate stops along the way. Highly recommend this tour with her amazing knowledge and organisation skills it was a wonderful experience. Ceren was very flexible and highly professional. Thanks Ceren, hope to see you again and Istanbul soon.

        I flew over from Holland to Istanbul. When we arrived at the tour we immediately got a good impression of our tour guide Emre Akdeniz. He knew very much about Istanbul and could answer every question I had. I had a great time learning so much about Istanbul. I cannot wait to come back and get to know more about the city!

        We are so glad we picked this tour! It was hard to decide if we need transportation or not and so happy we decided not go with transportation as it is very easy to get around Istanbul. Our tour guide Goktug was amazing. He took to all the sites and was very knowledgable and easy to understand. Goktug was so kind hearted and was very patient with us as we love to take pictures. He gave us great advice on how to get around Istanbul as we were going to be in the city for few more days. This tour gets you acclimated to the city. Istanbul is such a vibrant and beautiful city.

        Ümran Aslan showed us an amazing time on this tour. She was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and so interesting to talk to. She took us on the local transit system and public ferry which was an experience that we never would have tried on our own. We also went to a great diner for lunch which was delicious and to her favourite place to buy Turkish delight at the spice market.
        We highly recommend this tour and especially the experience we had with Ümran. Thanks so much!

        We did the tour and had a very nice tour guide. He took good care of us and told us a lot about Istanbul. His name is Emre Akdeniz. His English is good and I understood him very well. He gave us a lot of extra information and if you asked him something he immediately knew the answer.

        My husband and I recently traveled from Kuwait to Istanbul for a long weekend. Istanbul has long been on my bucket list and I was not disappointed! We were thrilled with our private tour guide, Alper. His English was excellent and his knowledge of Istanbul was incredible. We spent 2 very full days seeing every major site and learning everything we could. Alper stayed at our pace, making sure we spent as much time as we wanted to at each sight. He took us to some great restaurants and helped us buy some wonderful handmade wares. We had tickets to the Whirling Dervish show the first night and Alper even made sure we had a private ride to and from our hotel because we walked almost 6 miles that day and had a long day planned for the second. We could not have enjoyed our time in Istanbul more and I don't think we could possibly have seen more. I feel like we have a new friend in Turkey and I look forward to seeing Alper again on our next visit. I am a Travel Agent and I would recommend him to anyone visiting wonderful Istanbul!

        A minor glitch of a booking error time difference was quickly resolved with a phone call to Travel Consultant Guided Istanbul Tours. One hour later we were firmly in the thrall of our very knowledgeable, pleasant, and professional tour guide, Arzu. She showed us the cultural side of the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Basilica Cisterns and the Topkapi Palace. She was attentive and fun, and made the day a great experience, ending with a productive trip to the Grand Bazaar. We recommend the tour very highly. Thanks, Arzu!

        I highly recommend this tour, it was fabulous. Our tour guide Asli was fantastic. She was so knowledgeable and nice. She was very personable and it was very obvious that she loved history. We had the two day tour so it was really a whirlwind of the highlights of Istanbul. It was a walking history lesson. She was very flexible so if we spent longer at some places, she easily re-routed the tours to accommodate our wishes. We found Istanbul and it's people to be such a delight and cannot wait to return for more.

        Had a very enjoyable stay at Istanbul last week. we enrolled ourselves for a two day Istanbul city private tour . We were very lucky to have Sercan assigned to us as our tour guide for the two days that we went round the city. He was extremely friendly, very patient and had superb communication skills, don't think without him we would have enjoyed Istanbul so much. He has extremely good knowledge of the monuments and sites that we visited, was very patient with our questions and had the right connects to fast track us through the endless ticketing queues. Wonderful experience , thanks to Sercan we have phenomenal memories of Istanbul
