It was a wonderful day!
My guide Ismail is intelligent, very professional, helpful and tactful person. We visit only touristic places which I was interested - Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, hippodrome. Beside it he showed me Patriarch residence (it was my personal wish) and even helped me with contacts for my business.
My next visit I will exactly organise the tour for my family with Ismail.

The organization was very professional, I wouldn’t like to thank Ismail and Emrah for the experience that we had in Istanbul. I’d highly recommend Gulliver Tours to Istanbul’s newcomers. See you soon again guys.

Ismail was great, he explained all the monuments prior to us entering them and then allowed me and my wife enough time to explore on our own. He had a lot of knowledge about the city and we were thankful that he was our tour guide.
