Istanbul Tour
Sep 2019
My daughter and I really enjoyed our Private Tour with Ozlem Aydin. She did an excellent job of giving us the history and stories behind all of the sites we visited. Ozlem even sent us a note to make sure we were ok after the earthquake that occurred just after we left her! We had booked another tour to Cappadocia and Ephesus with Daily Istanbul Tours, and were extremely satisfied. All of the tours and travel arrangements went like clockwork. Thank you again!

Excellent Private Tour in Istambul
Sep 2019 • Family
We have visited Spice Bazaar, Beylerbeyi Palace, Çamlıca Tepesi and had the Bósforo Cruise with guide Ozlem Aydin, who has deep knowledge in Turkey history, told us a lot of interesting stories and was really caring with my elderly parents. Highly recommended!

We spent a very nice day with Ozlem touring the “highlights” of Istanbul. Istanbul is a beautiful city and Ozlem made it come to life. There is a great deal of history and Ozlem highlighted fascinating points of interest. Wonderful also that this is a small group tour (we were 6) so it feels more personal. Lunch was delicious in Sura. I would highly recommend this tour to get a “feel” of the city. Thank you, Ozlem, for sharing Istanbul with us.

Two Tours, Two Amazing Guides---Don't miss this opportunity
Aug 2019
My son and I only spent two days in Istanbul and I selected this tour company. And they were incredible. The first day, with Ayse, was a group tour (although there was only one other small family with us so it felt like a private tour). She took us to the main highlights in Istanbul not to be missed and she was quite knowledgeable, funny and a joy to be around. The second day, with our private tour guide Ozlem, who picked us up at the hotel, we did the Off the Beaten Trail too and that was even more awesome. My son is a huge history buff so she geared the tour to his needs and we walked in neighborhoods not traveled by many tourists and saw the real Istanbul beyond the highlights (which are a must as well). She gave us incredible insight and she was just a delight. We had a private driver all day who picked us up after we walked the neighborhoods and she really gave us a flavor of being a native in town. I highly recommend Ozlem for a private tour and specifically her Off the Beaten track tour. I'm so happy I choose this company. Well worth the money! Don't miss out.

Istanbul + Ozlem = unforgettable tour
Sep 2019 • Family
Istanbul was amazing by itself but what made it unforgettable and fun was our tour guide Ozlem! Not only was she knowledgeable and insightful but she was attentive to our different needs (group of 10 with seniors and a child). I would definitely come back to Istanbul, and most certainly insist on having Ozlem tour us again!!!

What a great day in Istmabul
Jun 2019 • Solo
Thanks to Ayse I had a great day in Istambul. I was not only able to see the highlights of the city with very interesting stories behind but also enjoyed great conversations and time together. I could try the local food an cofee with sweets. I also got some tips what to see and where to go after our trip. Thank you!

We had such a wonderful day tour with our very knowledgeable and informative tour guide Ozlem. She had so much insight and took us to the places where everyday Turkish people shop, visit and go about their daily routines. We went to many neighborhoods including Kadikoy and Moda. We saw so much including going to the Egyptian Spice Bazaar. My sister was looking for a specific item and Ozlem knew just where to get it. We enjoyed a beautiful lunch in Kadikoy where the locals eat and had the best food where some items are only made in one city in Turkey which made it very special! There was a special shop we asked her about that makes this out of the world ice cream sundae and she took us there to have it. Beautiful picture taking everywhere and on the boat over the Bosphorus. There is a lot of walking but you get to see everything and Ozlem is a wonderful guide and only takes you to the best of the best places!
