I had a wonderful 2-day tour of Istanbul with Songul! I truly enjoyed getting to know the city she is so passionate about. Couldn’t have wished for a better introduction to the city, its history, culture and food ;) Thank you, Songul, for making my trip so memorable!

We had another great experience with Sercan as our Istanbul tour guide. I brought my family to Turkey after visiting it myself in November of 2021 and specifically requested Sercan since we really enjoyed his tour the last time. He is was amazing at providing a lot of information about the history of the city, the Ottoman Empire and the specific sites that we visited. Our guide was very knowledgeable, engaging and ensured that we got the best experience possible. He made sure that the information was also tailored to our kids and that they were interested in the tour. He took us to the cisterns that had a fun laser show, which the kids absolutely loved. Sercan’s attention to detail in describing the historical and social significance of the historical sites was truly impressive. His English was perfect and easy to follow. He took us to a very good restaurant that serves traditional Turkish dishes for lunch and made sure we had time to do some gift shopping as well. We will definitely request Sercan for our future tours in Istanbul and other areas of Turkey.

Our tour with Emre was fantastic. He was a wonderful guide, so knowledgeable, prompt, kind, and willing to adjust our tour to fit the needs of our family. We saw all the amazing sites of Istanbul and the history was presented with great depth. The pace was perfect and adjusted to meet the needs of the group (including my father whose leg was hurting and was less mobile). Emre joined us for lunch and helped us make excellent food selections. It was a perfect tour with a fantastic guide. We couldn't ask for a better experience. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Istanbul. It is a must do experience! Thank you, Emre.

We had one of the best experiences on our 2 day private tour, with our very accommodating tour guide Bulut. He understood our requirements exactly, and our children and us had a very enjoyable time. We covered all the popular landmarks, in the summer heat, with a lot of ease. He was very knowledgeable and interesting, and showed us a lot of hidden gems, which we wouldn’t have been able to do on our own. We would definitely recommend Bulut to any family, visiting Istanbul for the first time.

This was the perfect start to our Istanbul trip. Our guide, Emel, was in one word FANTASTIC. Knowledgeable in all aspect of her country, and Istanbul's, history, charming and wonderful company during our one-day private tour of central Istanbul. I can really recommend this tour for all. Don’t leave Istanbul without it! We would love to come back and do another tour with this excellent ambassador for this great city.
