We booked a private 8 hours tour in Istanbul with driver and Italian speaking guide for 10 persons.
The organizaron was perfect, very fast response time and flexibility to chose the tour according to our wishes.
The bus was a Mercedes, clean and in good condition.
The guide was very nice, helpful and well prepared.
We really enjoyed the day, except for the weather: it was raining, but of course this was not their fault.
The price is good in our opinion.
I can recommend them for a professional and interesting tour of Istanbul.

Mehmet Şakir Karadibek is the best example for a great and passionate tour guide. He took me and my friends on a private Balat and Byzantine tour. Everything was organized and just perfect. We experienced the culture, the shops, the great food, and of course he was very informative and was explaining all the history behind areas . Şakir always makes me feel I’m in my country with his genuine generous soul.

I don't usually write reviews but it is impossible not to want to acknowledge the very professional and knowledgeable guide that made me and my daughter feel right at home in this beautiful city. Our guide arowsed our imagination and made us relive the history of what we saw through his words. I also have to say that Mehmet Sakir Karadibek went out of his way to make sure we had the best experience ever.

I am a professional photographer/filmmaker and needed a knowledgeable guide to help me with my short time in town.
I was pointed out to IPT, which sent me Ali, the most amazing tour guide I could ask.
Ali was passionate about the city and knew every inch of every corner we would turn. He took me and my producer through the city and told us about the reach history of Turkey and Istanbul.
Being a candy connoisseur (lol) he also helped us, between one cut and another, to choose the best Turkish delight in town!
Btw, thanks for carrying my tripod, Ali (for this service, extra fees might apply :) )

We have traveled extensively worldwide, and Turkiye and Istanbul is our favorite destination. We keep returning to Istanbul thanks to the most qualified and dignified gentleman, Mehmet Sakir Karadibek. He is by far the best professional tour guide we've encountered. He is personable, knowledgeable and takes the time to explain the extensive facts about Istanbul and Turkiye's incredible history and culture. He is not only an excellent ambassador for Turkiye but also Islam. I would highly recommend Sakir and have done so to many of our friends traveling to Turkiye.

Our experience was so much more than we could have ever hoped for. We were in Turkey for such a short time and wanted to maximize what little time we had for exploring. So we crossed our fingers and booked with this tour group. They asked us wanted we wanted to see upon confirmation on our tour, and we gave them a few general ideas but also let them know we preferred more of a local experience instead of a touristy style.
They paired us with Mehmet Şakir Karadibek. He was amazing!!! We truly cannot say enough about him. His English is fantastic, his knowledge of history is impeccable, and he has so many local connections that he was able to tailor our tour exactly as we wanted. We have already begun to plan another trip back with our kids based on this tour alone and will be hiring them again.

Perfect day in Istanbul with the perfect guide, Mehmet sakir KARADİBEK! This was our first day in Istanbul. Sakir gave us a tour of the best sights in Istanbul. He even taught us how to use public transportation and water ferries- a must to bypass Istanbul traffic!

He’s very knowledgeable and personable- we’re booking another day with him!

We had a wonderful day. Our guide Mehmet Salut Met us at our hotel and stared the tour. He gave us a history of the city and we walked to the ferry station. We took the ferry and we’re treated to hot tea on board. We started at the Hippodrom and hagia Sofia and walked over to topkapi palace. We were treated to a wonderful authentic lunch and started walking over to the bazaar. He is a fantastic guide who is proud of his country and heritage. Cannot recommend him more.

Thank you for an excellent tour with Ms. May, she was very experienced, knowledgeable, made sure we saw all the places we wanted to by managing our time and routing so well. We got everything we wanted to see and do with some great food recommendations too. She was an honest guide who was open about which shops she knew and recommended while showing us other options for shopping to ensure we had full choice. She is a local Istanbul resident and gave us a lot of local information including up and coming places. We really appreciate your assigning us Ms. May, thank you very much.
