          Ideal way to see Istanbul
          In one day we saw three times as much as we could have seen on our own or with another tour group. Emre was so knowledgeable about every place we went, very helpful and so friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and highly recommend this tour.

          Wonderful one day Istanbul tour
          Beautiful eight-hour tour to discover the best historical and non-historical places in Istanbul. Thanks to Emre, our precious guide, we were able to experience intense moments immersed in the Ottoman atmosphere. I recommend this agency to everyone and especially Emre, professional, prepared and kind!!!!

          Wonderful
          It was a really nice experience. Emre was fantastic and make my day in Istanbul much more beautiful and easier. I was alone, so it was much better to stay with him. He was really kind, gentle, and helped me a lot, since my departure from Athens to Istanbul. He gave me many tips and he was always messaging me to know if everything was OK. I really appreciate and recommend the tour.

          Emre is the best!
          Emre is the best tour guide I have had of all vacations (and I travel a lot). He is very knowledgeable of Turkish history, very thoughtful of guests and constantly checks on their wellbeing. Emre provided the airport transfers and day tours of Istanbul and Bosphorus. In all aspects it exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Emre.

          Istanbul's must see historical sites
          We had am amazing half day tour with Emre, our tour guide. We learned so much about the history and culture of Türkiye in such a short span of time. Emre is very knowledgeable and has a good command of English, French among others. I highly recommend this tour if you are short on time.

          An amazing experience with Embre!
          Embre was one of the most outstanding guides I have met in the 108 countries I have traveled to. He is amazing. So accommodating for any needs or wants in everything. I cannot imagine there is anything he cannot do. He went out of his way to get us dinner/show reservations at a local restaurant which was such a big ask as the place was sold out. Ember is so knowledgeable and answered everything we ask about. We will be contacting Embre when we return to Turkey. He is nothing short of amazing.!!!!!

          1 day Istanbul Tour with Emre
          We had a one day tour with Emre. His kind personality, good willingness to learn us Turkish history and his great experience, made our day very special. We loved Istanbul, even by spending only one day, and we would definitely choose Emre again. Thank you Emre!!

          Well curated and delightful experience with our Guide in Istanbul
          We had the best time in Istanbul and we credit our experience to our tour guide Emre. Emre was recommended by our dear friends who leave in Turkey and we knew we were going to be pampered. Emre was very knowledgeable and friendly and, above all, adapted to our style. He was very responsive before we arrive, during our trip, and even after we departed to make sure we were ok. I highly recommend Emre’s services. We will be back and continue our journey with him when we return to Istanbul.

          Wonderful tour of Old Istanbul
          Emre took us on a wonderful tour of the Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque (and avoided all of the long lines) and several other locations and then gave us time in the Grand Bazaar. It was our favorite day in Istanbul. Emre spoke very good English and was quite knowledgeable and entertaining. He also suggested an excellent restaurant for dinner and dropped us there as we requested. We would definitely recommend Emre as your guide in Istanbul.

          I has recently the pleasure of exploring the enchanting city of istanbul through the guidance of Emre. While this city is truly mesmerizing, my experience would have not been as extraordinary without the expertise and passion of Emre. He really tailor made the tour for me and my parents and he brought us to some hidden gems we would have not discovered without him. I would highly recommend this private tour for everyone willing to discover istanbul.

          Private Tour with Experienced & Knowledgeable Guide/Driver
          The driver cum guide was truly experienced and certainly knows all the "hidden tresures" not usually found with the usual routes. His knowledge on the historical sites was like a walking encyclopedia. Plus we still took many scenic shots. Highly recommended.

        This tour will give you just the main landmark highlights in Istanbul, but if you have enough time in the city better to do the landmark visits on your own.
        Cost of the tour is 70 euros with lunch included, lunch was not worth 5 euros.
        If you do it by your own maximum you will spend 30 usd with a good lunch
        I won’t recommend to take this tour at all, better you explore the city by yourself and avoid being scammed by this agency. The tour sucks. Nothing against the tourist guide he was nice and very helpful.
