Ozden and his travel company team are simply the best! It was our first visit to Turkey, and we were taken care of with such care and attention from the minute we were met at the airport. His knowledge and passion for his city made Istanbul come alive for us in his presence. He has a fun but informative approach and is well-connected, having lived there for over 30 years. Those connections served us well as we visited several other parts of the country and used his recommendations. Can't say enough about how much he added to our experience! We look forward to visiting our new friend again 😀

Ozden was an amazing tour guide. He catered to the experiences we wanted to have and had in-depth history recaps for each site we visited, with plenty of humor along the way. He made sure we were safe throughout the entirety of the tour, and he also allowed us to have a few moments of free time in some of the historical sites to explore. He went out of his way to make sure we were enjoying the tour, and took some great pictures of my mom and I (without even having to ask)!

If you want to explore Istanbul with one of the most personable guides around, definitely book with Ozden. You won't regret it!

We had Özden as our guide in Istanbul June 2022. His English is very good, he is very knowledgeable about Turkish history & culture and he is a very nice and fun person. He is always checking on you when he suggests a restaurant (follow his excellent suggestions) , if you are having fun, if you arrived at the hotel, etc. We felt safe and taken care of with him, despite our lack of Turkish language. For me, he goes above and beyond the duties of a regular guide.

I was in Istanbul on business from the United States, and had an opportunity to escape work for a few hours for a private guided tour of Istanbul with my team. Ozden was our guide, and I cannot speak highly enough about how well our tour went. Ozden was extremely engaging, spoke professionally, and genuinely loves what he does....teaching people about his country and its history. I had so many questions, and he patiently answered them all, taking the time to explain many of the customs and practices of Islam. So many of our world's problems could be fixed it we took the time to learn and understand other cultures. Ozden took us through the Haigia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, a FABULOUS lunch spot, and to the Grand Bazaar. Finally, we capped off the tour with an interactive exhibit at a rug business where we saw how Turkish rugs were made. We were given a no-pressure opporutnity to purchase as well. Truly a fantastic experience and made my time in Istanbul that much more enjoyable and comfortable. You won't be disappointed!!

Ozden was an amazing guide. Ever since the first time I contacted him to be our tour guide in Istanbul, he replied my messages within a few minutes and was always very kind and helping us make our stay the best possible.
He took us to Topkapi Palace (in which he is an expert) , Haguia Sophia (from outside), the hippodrome, the Grand Bazar and Spice bazar, one of the cisterms (the Basilica cistern was closed) , organized a private boat tour of the Bosphorus for us (which was great!) and dinner at a wonderful rooftop restaurant overlooking the Bosphorus.
I forgot o mention the delicious lunch we had at the Pudding shop restaurant. They serve local specialties. This was a meeting point for the hippies in the 60 s that were traveling to Asia.
Thank you so much Ozden!!

Özden was a wonderful tour guide, making our trip to Istanbul the absolute highlight of our travels (where we visited multiple countries). Every tourist has different plans and expectations - we had a small child so didn't want to pack too much into each day. Özden was very receptive and flexible to help us structure each day so the entire family (including our son) would get the most out of our days visiting Istanbul. We ended the trip having made a friend with Özden, which says it all.

I cannot recommend Ibrahim, Goktor, Engin and their team highly enough. Attentive and extremely diligent, they made our three week trip one of our safest and most enjoyable journeys so far. Using extensive local knowledge and contacts, they were able to help us navigate one of the world’s most sophisticated cultures with comfort and ease. We will definitely use their services again when we return!

Having a prívate guide was the best decision we made. Özden our tour guide was fantastic.
He took us to all the places we wanted to go, introduced us to great, very friendly people and explain with much detail everything about all the places we went to. History, important events etc
Unfortunately we only had 1 day in Istanbul and there is so much to see and learn that now I want to go back with plenty of time to be able to do it all and of course Özden is who I will call again.

We enjoyed our stay in Istanbul so much. Stayed at the Amira hotel where the staff and location was great. Just few minutes walk from Agia Sofia and the Blue Mosque. Among others, we visited the Grand and Spice Bazar, Ortakoy, Galata Tower, did a boat tour through Bosphorous and other places. Our private tour guide, Mr Ozden Basak, was outstanding. He took us to the best locations, explained the history of different places, made dinner reservations at amazing places with awesome food. He helped us with transfers from hotel to airport and was always checking that we made it safe to our destination. I would definitely take my family with him again.
