What a fantastic experience! From start to finish this was just great!

Communication was excellent. I presented the time we had available (two day layover) and our interests and Istanbul Private Guided Tours did the rest. I quickly received an email with a proposal of a private tour with options based on our interests. The proposal included clear pricing. Everything was included in our price, ground transportation, food, snacks etc, even airport pickup and drop off. Fantastic! I also asked for a hotel recommendation and that too was perfect.

My wife and I took a combination of the Europe and Asia Walking Private Tour and the Food Tour. The city was wonderful and our experience with Istanbul Private Guided Tours made it all the better. They took care of all the details and let us focus on enjoying the city, its culture, history, architecture and wonderful foods.

Our guide, Mr. Goktug Ustunkaya spoke perfect English, was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, passionate about his city, knew all the tricks to get to and from locations smoothly, arrived promptly and was well prepared for our day together. The perfect guide, and a perfect gentleman. He also recommended a wonderful restaurant for dinner that my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed.

We would have loved to take additional tours of the surrounding area but our time was limited to one day only. We hope to return to Turkey one day and when we do, we will certainly be using Istanbul Private Guided Tours. We greatly enjoyed our time and can whole hardheartedly recommend this agency and it's guides.

Our guide, Sibel Kilic, was very knowledgeable and very accommodating. She met us at our hotel. We had a great experience visiting the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and the Basilica Cistern with stops for coffee and lunch. The Basilica Cistern was not on our original plan but Sibel was happy to add that to our tour. This sort of private experience is a lot more expensive than the “free walking tours” ( which cost say 20 Euro) but they are longer, ie 6 hours, and much more informative as you can interact with guide. So, highly recommended

I travelled with my 2 teen daughters. Mr Tarik Saylan assisted with itineraries and travel arrangements including booking Gulet boat trips and diving in Kas. At all times considering our interests and concerns. Everything was excellently and appropriately arranged. Depth of experience and connections much appreciated.
In Istanbul we did 3 walking tours, with our excellent guides Ms Melike and Ms Alev. They were so well prepared and informative, guiding and hosting us perfectly to get as much value for our limited 3 days on Istanbul. So much to see and do - definitely worth paying for a private guided tour.

My family of 5 (three teenage children) toured with Tarik over Christmas. He could not have been more knowledgeable or professional. He was accommodating and able to change directions in order to keep us all happy when the weather turned to rain. He knows his city well and is adaptable! He found hamburgers and pizza for my son and took us off the beaten track the following day to show my husband some sights he had not seen before. His stories are engaging his knowledge unparalleled. He is ideal for a first time trip to Istanbul!!

We really enjoyed our day with Cicek walking around historic Istanbul. It was a hot day but we had a good balance of sightseeing and places to visit. A particular highlight for me was walking around Balat and all the pretty painted houses. The only issue I would highlight was the visit to the Carpet shop near the Grand Bazzar. Whilst this was interesting up to a point, we weren’t expecting it and didn’t really want to be put on the spot to buy a carpet - even if in the end the shop proprietor was pleasant, erudite and didn’t really give us a hard sell. It was an hour where could have seen another mosque or palace. To be honest if we had known about the visit before hand we might have thought about if we actually needed a rug or carpet and might have bought something. So i suggest you make it clear in advance to your clients, so they can choose, rather than just taking us there as a fair acompli. But apart from that we had a great day and I recommend others use your company and guides like Cicek.

I thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour today with Mr. Goktug. I saw many fabulous places by walking. We took transit as needed. He accommodated my needs (including helping with cell service issues) and knew the best local places to add a special quality to the tour. He shared a wealth of knowledge and local experience. Loved walking all the back streets to truly experience the city. The tour - certainly a highlight of my trip! Thank you!

This trip was an unforgettable experience for me and my husband.
We saw the Galata tower, Emınonu and Kadıkoy. Galata tower was like a movie set. You will feel like you are on a time journey in history in Istanbul.
