Kadir was a superb tour guide. His knowledge of Turkish history, of the main attractions (we went with him to Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and Basilica Cistern) coupled with his charming demeanour meant we learnt lots and had a great time while doing so. Going with a tour guide lets you skip the queues so that's worth it alone but go with Kadir and you won't be disappointed!

Unal Adin is an English and Greek speaking tour guide in Istanbul. I had a one on one tour with him this month and he was wonderful. Knowledgeable, sweet, kind and a very nice man in general. He truly opened Istanbul up for me!

Dear Merih

We arrived back home in South Africa on Saturday, the 12th of September. We spend another few days in Istanbul after our trip.

I would just like to thank you and congratulate you and your company with an excellent tour itinerary. There is absolutely nothing that we can find fault with. Everything was so well organised and the hotel accommodation was great. The meals that were provided were also great. We were also extremely lucky with the tour guides that we had. They contributed to our enjoyable experiences.

We will definitely recommend your services to everyone we know who visit Turkey.

Thank you once again for you quick, kind and prompt and efficient assistance. I wish I could meet you in person to thank you personally.

Kind regards and keep up the good work.

Great day with Berrin our guide. Her wealth of information was just the thing we needed for our first visit. We saw all the major sights and learned a lot about the history and culture. Can't wait for day two.

Dear Merih Ginay,

We enjoyed our tours in Istanbul very much. We could see everything what was foreseen and of interest to us.

Many thanks to Ayla. She was very pleasant,
competent, professional and explained history and sightseeings understandably and comprehensively.

You have satisfied us. We are happy.

Our very best regards

I had the pleasure of having Betul Basai as my guide through Istanbul. She had her masters in art history and I believe archaeology and was incredibly knowledgeable. I usually hate guided tours because I like to keep my own pace and i don't necessary need to "know" everything and Betul did a great job in adapting to our pace depending on our level of interest as well as "reading" the room and not staying too long in one site.

She also showed us other non "touristy" areas of the city for coffee and pastries which actually ended being my favourite part of Istanbul (Karakoy) and took us to have the BEST BEST BESSSTTTT street meat ever (Cag Kebab!!). My partner was really into history while i'm more into food and she did a great job of bridging the gap.

I can't say enough good things about this tour! She spoke english fluently and there was no gaps in communication.

A million thumbs up!!!

I visited Turkey and Gallipoli a few weeks ago and with assistance of Istanbul Tour Guide they allowed me to customise their tour of Gallipoli & Troy so I could spend a day on my own at Gallipoli to suit my research needs.

They were terrific to deal with - nothing was too much trouble and the met every change I wanted. The transfers in Istanbul and Gallipoli went without a hitch, on time good quality vehicles. The accommodation in Istanbul and Çanakkale was excellent. Their staff and guides were knowledgeable and friendly, they could not do enough for us.
All in all I highly recommend Istanbul Tour Guide for anyone wanting a personalised visit to Turkey.

I was alone in Istanbul and wanted to see a few places on the same day. I came across a review that gave a good review of a personal guide. Sevilay (0535 738 9756) took me on a walking tour around Taksim area. We saw delightful streets, churches and stopped to say hi to local businesses. We ended up in Hague Sophia. It was a nice experience, I had someone with local know how, historical knowledge and most importantly, someone I could trust. Value for money.

Berrin Yavuz created the most magical and beautiful day for me and my husband - she wove together the history and the culture of this unique City in the most perfect way. Her English is superb and her knowledge is second to none - and yet it is her personality and warmth - she is engaging and delightful. I can thoroughly recommend Berrin to you.
