          Amazing Turkey
          This was an absolutely amazing trip organized by Ozgur at City of Sultans. Got to see the highlights of Turkey. Awesome! Definitely recommend if you're looking for an itinerary.

          A beautiful experience
          It was a great Experience for me and my wife, we had a beautiful time on the old city part of Istanbul. Cappadocia was just what I expected and more, there is so much history on these lands that I want to visit again for different locations next year! City of Sultans was also punctual and delivered what it promised, very satisfied with the overall organisation.

          A great experience and great service!
          We visited Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and the Grand Bazaar while in Istanbul with my fianceé. The sights were beautiful! Our guide Baris was very experienced and knowledgable, he gave us all the necessary information about the sites and more! The itinerary was very well planned, it did not take longer than necessary and was not cut short either, City of Sultans really found a nice balance here.

          A great picture of Istanbul for a short trip
          I went with my friend to Istanbul for a 2 day trip and this tour showed us the best parts of the Golden Horn in one walk. Our guide, Fatih, was knowledgeable and entertaining. Overall a good choice for tourists visiting Istanbul for a short trip.

          A very memorable 5 day tour of Istanbul and Cappadocia
          I took a 5 day tour to turkey with my family. The tour included a visit to Istanbul and Cappadocia. In Istanbul we visited topkapi palace, st.sophia, blue mosque, and grand Bazar. In capadocia we visited the various valleys, open-air museum, underground city. We also got to see local crafts of pottery and carpet weaving. Accomodation and food were included and we're very good. Tour guides were polite and informative.

          An unforgettable experience
          I've travelled to different parts of the world, but I have never seen such amazing places and above all friendly and nice people. If you are a religious history lover, then look no further. This tour provides you with such deep insights into the roots of the main historical religion developments and historical ruins in the region. The climax was undoubtedly the hot air balloon experience in Cappadocia. The touristic place of Kusadasi offered a wonderful experience to chill out! And what about Pamukalle, a unique scenery moulded over millions of years from mother nature. Complementing our family experience was the appreciation of the making of fine ceramic artefacts through the visits at various Turkish artisan outlets. Ozgur from the City of Sultans Tour was very helpful before and during the visit. All in all, a highly recommendable tour. Indeed a very good value for money.

          Unforgettable experience
          Amazing tour with a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. Lunch was included and it was tasty. The only change was not going to the grand bazaar because it was closed on Sunday. However, our guide pointed us to the Arasti and Spice Bazaar to visit on our own. Pick up and drop off was a huge plus. Just remember if you requested both pick up and drop off to remind them. The driver waited until I was done shopping to take me back to my hotel. Highly recommend this tour.

          Manyam’s best of Istanbul tour
          Merhaba! I just want to express our sincere gratitude for arranging such a wonderful tour. We could not have asked for a better guide than Ali. He was the best of the best. The tour very informative, everything explained in great detail. We got to visit Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, The hippodrome, Topkapi Palace and Grand Bazaar. Ali was exceptionally patient considering that we were a group of people from different nationalities and sometimes got lost… he was there to assist with all our needs. He was not shy to ask if the group had questions and would respond whole heartedly to our questions. Cok tesekkur ederim🙂

          Great Tour and Guide
          Great walking tour! Our guide, Baris, was excellent! He speaks English very well and was easy to understand. He is knowledgeable about all the places visited on this tour and having the background information made each visit more meaningful. I had a short amount of time in Istanbul, so this tour worked out perfectly. I was able to see popular places without wasting time. We had a small group of 8 people. Hotel pick up was helpful, too.
