      Baris did a great job for our tour.
      Baris did a great job for our tour. Very easy to understand and explained the history clearly. Two thumbs up! I would recommend this tour. Just be aware that it does require the purchase of entry tickets to a couple places.

      Don't go without Baris.
      Baris was amazing and very knowledgeable about all the places we visited today. He was patient and so informative. His sparkling smile lit up the room at Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and the Topkapi palace. He is a sure fire winner and top of his class.

      A beautiful experience
      It was a great Experience for me and my wife, we had a beautiful time on the old city part of Istanbul. Cappadocia was just what I expected and more, there is so much history on these lands that I want to visit again for different locations next year! City of Sultans was also punctual and delivered what it promised, very satisfied with the overall organisation.

    We used Barish for a private day tour of Istanbul that started in the Old City and visited the Topaki Palace, the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, and a lovely lunch that kept us out of the rain and gave us a nice vantage point to see the Bosporus. Barish was knowledgable and didn't rush us. Overall a great experience.
