The value of this tour is exceptional. The amount of things you get to do and see, all with a private guide, is beyond what we thought we'd get for the money we paid. Our tour guide, Ceren, was fantastic. I truly believe our time was exceptional because of her. We had some very unique circumstances and requests as our plans changed several times during our stay in Turkey due to COVID restrictions and lockdowns. Ceren was able to accommodate us and gave 2 wonderful tours. We even did a few spontaneous things which added such a great experience to our time in Istanbul. The two days with her that we spent were like seeing Istanbul with an old friend. Her english is excellent, as well as her humor and knowledge. When we come back, we will be booking another tour, and will be asking for Ceren! Do yourself a favor and book this tour if you are spending any time in Istanbul. You will not regret it. I wish we had better pictures together but COVID restrictions prevented us from doing so. Thank you Ceren! My wife and I loved our time with you in your city.…

I spent three days with Ozgur in Istanbul. We covered a lot of ground. Even though it was my second time in the city, Ozgur was able to offer many new insights and share his love of the city. His social skills and English are excellent. A three-day itinerary was the right length for me — two days to see the main attractions, one day to see the less touristy neighborhoods, and enough time to ask questions, take some detours, and absorb the street life. I recommend this private tour and Ozgur in particular.…
