We booked three tours with Walks InIstanbul and our online contact was the owner Arzu, who communicated in a timely and clear fashion. We requested a female guide and were assigned to Guzin, who was an absolutely terrific guide- friendly, charming, knowledgeable, opinionated (when we asked!!) and passionate. Our initial tour was of the original Jewish and Greek neighborhoods that are now in the midst of a pretty aggressive gentrification campaign. We then did a short Bosphorus cruise at dusk, with the highlights being the different sultans' palaces that were scattered along the straits. The following day, we covered the expansive Topkapi Palace that really had a thorough set of billboards to read about everyday life in the palace kitchen. The humongous Hagia Saphia and the equally sprawling Grand Bazaar rounded out that busy day as well. Istanbul is bursting with a colorful and complicated history, and we were grateful that Guzin really provided an unadulterated perspective of the Ottoman interaction with its minorities. We appreciated her candor. Its important to have a solid guide to provide context and and expertise and we were thrilled with Guzin as our choice.

Sabih is a very experienced, pleasant and competent guide. It is a good idea to give ‚free time‘ to the group to look around by themselves. Unfortunately, blue mosque is under restauration for +ca. 3years, not much to see there.

With guide like Guzin everything can be possible! We walked several hours throught Byzantine Istanbul, and never have I ever seen that Guzin was out of words to explain or describe the surroundings! I would definitely recommend her, as she is really social and full of knowledge!

Exceptionally detailed knowledge and friendly guide in Guzim. Asked questions to custom tailor comments and insights. Included tour of the Harem, which was the best part other than the 4th courtyard. Recommend highly!
