Metin was assigned as our guide by the best travel agent in Istanbul, my friend Ozden Basak owner of Turkland Travel. Metin met us with a friendly smile on his face... More

Our group of nine adults had a fabulous day with Odzen as our tour guide around the Ancient City of Ephesus. Odzen was very knowledgeable, engaging and accommodating of the groups needs. Enjoyed his storytelling bringing the history alive. We loved the authentic lunch off the tourist track, the food and setting was enchanting. We liked the flexibility of the... More

Amazing day with Ozden. We (a group of nine friends from New Zealand, travelling on a Mediterranean cruise) had just one day in Turkey. Ozden met us in Kusadasi port and took us to Ephesus, House of the Virgin Mary and Basilica of St John, also to a local authentic Turkish restaurant and from there to a Turkish carpet manufacturer....

We had a wonderful trip in Istanbul, because our tour guide, Mr Ozden. He is a professional, friendly, and helpful man, also guide us to valuable shop to buy Lokum (Turkish Delight)... 有责任感及专业的导游真的很重要,尤其在一个陌生的国度。我不能说土耳其很危险,不过城市难免有骗子,专门欺骗游客,若不是之前做功课提防,要不然就是让导游帮你 解决难题。 他还带我们前往买好吃,价钱适中的土耳其软糖;之后自己前往其他地方试吃,味道真是差了十万八千里。

Our guide, Metin, was fantastic. His knowledge was exceptional and with a great personality and sense of humour, my wife and I had a great 8+ hours. I highly recommend the company but specifically Metin if he is available.

We spent a month on a private tour of Turkey which we could not fault. Two wonderful weeks in Istanbul including a long day trip to the Gobekli Tepe site with an excellent guide Yavus. If you are considering a trip to Turkey these are the guy's.

Our guide Yavuz was brilliant and added so much to our experience of the major sites. I was in awe of his depth of knowledge and really enjoyed the tone and pace of his stories. It was our first day in the city and he really helped us understand Istanbul's hugely long and complex history. I know he was worried... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
