We feel in love with Istanbul at first sight. Especially The Bosphorus Tour, guided by Ugur, was amazing. Besides the beautiful boat ride, we saw the authentic Istanbul from our bus ride up into the mountains, where we ate local lunch. We visited the Bar 360, where we had "before dinner cocktails" with stunning views of the city. Thank you Bitinya and Ugur for a wonderful day.

Hi Sanne, Thank you for your great comment for our Bosphorus Cruise Tour. We designed the tour to allow to see the beauty of the Bosphorus; but also to see the Black Sea and the different parts of the city, in one day. We are very glad that you enjoyed the day. Yes, you are so right: the late afternoon drink at 360 with that spectacular view of Istanbul was a wonderful finishing...Thank you very much and hope to meet you in Istanbul again.

My husband and I took two (2) private tours with Bitinya - Highlights of Istanbul 1, and Off the Beaten Path. These tours gave us a wonderful overview of Turkey's history, food, culture - past and present. We visited the wonderful landmarks of Istanbul, amazing markets, and sampled many of the local food and deliciacies. I am now addicted to Turkish tea and coffee!!

We went to Istanbul, Cappadocia and back to Istanbul. Our 2 nights stay in Cappadocia was definitely hard to forget! Basri and Ibrahim our guides was a knowledgeable, patient and interesting host who was well versed in history and architecture of Cappadocia. We had great fun and priceless experience in Cappadocia. Once we were back in Istanbul, Betul was our guide for 'Off the beaten track' tour where she walk us through the road less taken by tourist for us to experience the local culture. We started of from our hotel, off to Sultanahmet where we briefly stop at Hippodrome, Blue mosque and Hagia Sophia. We continued our journey walking in a quiet yet quaint street which lead to Grand Bazaar, local market and spice market. Betul treat us traditional apple tea with delicious simit in one of the local cafe. We then took a ferry to the Asian side and had Turkish coffee before we off to Ortakoy. We had the delicious Kumpir (potato mixed with olives, mushrooms, cheese etc) by the Bosphorus straits. We took the tram back to Sultanahmet where we bid goodbye to Betul. It was truly an memorable experience and will definitely recommend Bitinya highly!!

I booked the Highlights 1 tour and had Serdar as my guide. I agree with the fact that you can tour Istanbul on your own, but having someone to organize your day and guide you through the attractions saves a lot of time and in one day I could go to most attractions in one day, on foot, avoiding cues. The Night Photography tour with Ugur and Emre was also fun. I am a beginner in photography and Emre gave me useful tips. We walked through parts of Istanbul I wouldn't do by myself alone, and the place they took me for dinner was so interesting and the food was delicious. I also booked airport transfers with them, from Ataturk to my hotel and from my hotel to Sabiha Gocken Airport when I left, at good prices and good service.

We went to Istanbul, Cappadocia, Konya, Ephesus, Bursa, and back to Cappadocia. Ugur was a knowledgeable, patient, and flexible host who paid great attention to detail and met all of our requests for planning, and also changes in daily plans as needed. He was well versed in history and architecture, and enriched our experience immensely. All of us on the tour would recommend Bitinya and Ugur highly.
