He made provisions for a wonderful and informative day at local sites. We found this agency to be responsive, honest, and truly interested in our impression of Turkey. I recommend this tour group without reservation; they made it... More

I’m a long-time world traveler who usually travels independently, but at times works with travel companies to make hotel and sightseeing suggestions and special arrangements. I have used Encounter Tours on three occasions over a period of the last nine years. Each time my expectations were exceeded and I cannot recommend this company more highly. The owner, Chevy, has gone... More

Organising private tours is not a real business for me rather it's a mere passion since i do love travelling. I've been to Turkey many times and frankly i was able to organise two tours with my friends since last year. I met Yalcin from Kaletour tourism and last December he was with my group as tour guide.

Chevy and his staff at Kaletour organised a wonderful three week trip for myself and two sisters through Turkey. Our trip took in the delightful Ottoman town of Safranbolu on the Black Sea, tours and a balloon ride over Cappacocia and a flight to the coastal towns of Fethiye and Kas. We were then driven in private transport to Pamukkale... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
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.
