    RECOMMEND 100%!!!
    Onur and his team were just amazing. My family and I had an AMAZING experience since the moment we met, until the last second with him. They know absolutely everything and will hook you up to experience the best and local secrets in Istanbul. I cannot wait to contact them again for my next visit. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

    Best guide and tour In Istanbul
    I recently had the pleasure of experiencing a guided tour with Ismail Efe, and I must say it was an exceptional experience for me and my family. Ismail was an incredible guide whose insightful knowledge truly enriched our visit. The service provided from start to finish was enjoyable, ensuring a smooth and memorable trip. I highly recommend this service to anyone looking to explore the city; you won’t be disappointed!

    Best tours in Istanbul
    We are currently holidaying in Istanbul and Ibrahim has organised our airport transfers and guides for our trip. The arrival at the airport and transfer to our hotel was simple and seamless with constant communication and clear instructions. Ibrahim met us in person at our hotel and went through our plans and made us feel so comfortable and relaxed especially when it’s our first time in Istanbul and it’s such a busy and crowded city. We had a full day tour with Onur who was an incredible guide. His historical knowledge is remarkable and was very flexible in what we wanted to get out of our day. We would highly recommend the food tour we went to places we would never find on our own and had delicious Turkish cuisine, where the locals dine and the markets where they shop. Onur helped us plan the rest of our time in Istanbul and showed us how to use the public transport system. We cannot recommend Ibrahim and Onur’s services highly enough they have shown us true Turkish hospitality and we have fallen completely in love with this spectacular city.

    Day trip
    A long day but well worth it. Sinan was a very knowledgeable guide and taught us a lot. It would have been difficult to get a real feel for what happened without a guide. The company was great to deal with and the communication was top notch.

    Enriching, enjoyable and a real Turkish Delight!
    Our visit to Istanbul was our first, a brief dip so to speak, and we couldn’t have been more impressed. From early planning of an itinerary and all logistics, right through to the end of our trip we are very well looked after by Ibrahim and his team of experienced team of professionals. The communications prior to arrival about where to meet at the airport to the end of the trip were terrific. Ibrahim was always in touch and very clear with his information, pick up and drops offs all perfectly executed and timely. The hotels well located and comfortable. Lots of charm and character, breakfasts delicious. Our guides were so knowledgable on history, culture, and the local how to’s and where to’s, we were able to make the most of our time on the ground. No question remained unanswered! Thank you so much Onur and Apo, we so enjoyed your company and your stories. We’ve learned and seen so much thanks to you both. We will certainly be back to Instanbul and will use Turkland services again. Highly recommend their services to anyone who would like to get the most of their visit to this wonderful part of the world, there is so much to see and enjoy here. Let them help you to make the most of your trip, they sure did for ours.

    Dream tour of Istanbul
    We have just had the most amazing 3 days in Istanbul. Thank you so much. Our guide Onur was the best. He quickly worked out what suited our tastes and adjusted the tour to fit. He took us to all the little out of the way places of interest that only a true local would know of. From the very outset this company conducted themselves very professionally. Communications were great, thank you Ibrahim and Onur, and the tours were of a standard that others struggle to attain. Thank you again everyone for an incredible holiday experience

    Hire this man!
    Ibrahim and Turkland Travel gave us a super trip. Everything was planned to a 'T'. He and his ground crew were always on time, provided great commentary, and were knowledgeable and accommodating. Our hotels, drivers, guides, and side trips made our trip one to remember. I've traveled through many countries and always without a guide. Turkey is a challenge, but Ibrahim paved the way and we never had the least bit of trouble. I can't recommend Ibrahim more. Hire him! You won't regret it.

    A Day to Remember
    This was our second trip to Istanbul. We wanted to explore beyond the main attractions. Onur (our marvellous guide) listened to what we wanted and delivered a wonderful walking / culinary tour of both the Asia and Europe sides. In one day we used the ferry, funicular rail and metro to enhance our exploring experience. I day locked into our memories.

    Unforgettable Family Trip to Türkiye
    Booking this trip with Turkland Travel Agency was one of the best decisions we have ever made! From the moment I reached out to Ibrahim he listened to what we wanted to get out of the trip and then created the perfect itinerary just for us! Communication was impeccable before, during, and after the trip which is a level of service I have never experienced before. Our guide, Sinan, who was with us for 8 days was an absolute delight! Incredibly knowledgeable, kind, flexible, and considerate of the fact we were traveling with kids. I cannot imagine experiencing Türkiye any other way and excited to come back someday! Thank you for the memories!!

    Turkland- best tour agent in Turkey
    We booked our tour with Turkland and spent a week in Turkey. It turned out to be a private tour and everything was well organised by Ibrahim. He welcome us on our arrival and checked on us almost daily via whatsapp to ensure that we were happy with everything. We had a few different guides throughout our tour and they were all fantastic. All hotels and meals provided were above our expectations and we highly recommend Turkland Tours. We would give 6 stars if we could!

    Best tour we have ever done
    We had such a lovely time with Ulas and our driver. Absolute perfection! Ulas is a historian and gave us insights to the evolution of the rock formations and the people of the area ! We had an amazing meal recommended by him. Ibrahim our travel coordinator was brilliant. We told him what we wanted and he absolutely delivered! I highly recommend this tour company and I hope you get Ulas. He’s the best!

    EXCELLENT TRAVEL EXPERIENCE, PROFESSIONAL KNOOWLEDGEABLE AND TRUSTWORTHY
    My husband and I planned to spend our vacations in Istambul. It was our first time in Turkey, and we were very excited to explore the city. We contacted Ibrahim and asked him to organize a three-day plan for us with a private guide in Spanish/Italian. From the beginning Ibrahim was very helpful and we received his proposal which included the most important locations to be visited: the Beylerbeyi and Topkapi Palaces; Hippodrome Square, German Fountain; the most famous mosques - Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophie Mosque, Suleymanye Mosque. We also visited the amazing Basilica Cistern; the Spice Market and the Grand Bazaar; we walked around the historic areas of Istambul, Fener and Balat Districts, St. Stephen Church (Iron Church). Our guide, Tuna, was excellent!! He was very professional and explained every detail of each of the locations we visited. He made as avoid very long lines because he knew when and at what timer to visit each place. We also visited the Asian side of Istambul which offers a unique perspective on the city and its history. We also booked a night yacht cruise at the Bosphorus which included a delicious dinner and a great show! I highly recommend Ibrahim and Tuna for your trip to Istambul. They both did their best to make this trip memorable! Thank you. Patricia

I would give 6 stars if I could. Onur was an incredible tour guide, and our group could not have dreamt up a better day. We only had 1 full day in Istanbul, and we were so lucky to spend it with Onur touring Istanbul. It was both magical and tiring. We were able to see most of the major historical sites in old town, while meeting some of his friends in town along the way and eating incredible food. We made a new life friend today with Onur, and I recommend this to absolutely anyone.

Mr Ozden Basak is a superior guide! He is both very knowledgeable and very friendly. We had very limited time and he made the most of it. We learned more from him then we ever could have on our own. When in Istanbul you simply must hire Ozden.

Being in Istanbul for only day meant we had to spend it pretty wisely and we were not let down to say the least. Onur showed us around to his favorite parts of Istanbul and we left with what I could say was a (super tired) magical feeling. And the only reason we felt tired was because we probably walked 10 miles. But seriously, I don’t usually write reviews but this was one was worth it. The tour felt personal, thoughtful, and special. The only thing more I can say is take a tour with Turkland!!
