    We booked Tugce Rehber on the 25th Sept 2023 to tour the Golden Horn area of Istanbul - what an experience!!! Tugce, a young vibrant and very knowledgeable guide took us to see the Peirre Loti point and then walk down to visit several beautiful churches - the Bulgarian Iron Church and the Orthodox church in the Fenner area. We also went to the Eyub Sultan mosque with a tomb, sat in the square and enjoyed a local wrap !
    We walked in the small streets passing by the colourful residential buildings ; the most fascinating part of of this day tour was Tugce introduced us to several local foods, a winter drink made from pickled vegetables. We ended our day with her in a nice roof top local restaurant with a wonderful spreed of the local cuisine.
    I would recommend Tugce to anyone looking for a guide in Istanbul. Thank you Tugce

    I hands down recommend Göky for any help planning a trip to Turkiye. He sends detailed info and videos explain g everything you need to know to have a stress free experience.

    I booked Göky to help me shop at the Grand Bazaar. He took care of all the details and arranged my transportation to and from the airport.

    He works hard to personalize the trip according to your wishes and desires and genuinely looks out for you.

    He’s an excellent communicator and sincerely cares about the people that book through him. Göky is amazing and I will only deal with him upon returning to Turkiyë

    5 stars!

    Was supposed to be with another three people but my guide told me they cancelled at last minute so it's only me. My guide is very knowledgeable and seems to know a lot of people in Istanbul. I like the cruise, only wished the weather would be nicer (but this is not something to do with the tour itself). We didn't spend too much time in the bazaar as its not very big and everybody there tries to get you buy something.

    Duygu was the absolute BEST!!! Her English is excellent and her knowledge of Istanbul was amazing. I learned so much about the culture and customs. She made my day absolutely perfect. She guided me through the very confusing Grand Bazaar and has knowledge of the best vendors and even helped negotiate prices for me. she took me to a lovely and yummy local restaurant for a break and a delicious lunch of local and fresh food. I would definitely book with her again and I highly recommend her if youo are looking for a perfect day.

    After using it for airport transfer during our trip to Istanbul, we took a city tour on another day, a very luxurious vehicle came to pick us up and we had an 8-hour trip. We communicated with our driver by sending a message on WhatsApp, he took us to the places we wanted and we determined the waiting time ourselves. We had a great day, we went shopping and visited historical places.

    The excursion was very exciting and insightful at the same time. We very much enjoyed our guide who was extremely interesting and have us a lot of historical background about Turkey and Istanbul. Although we had only one hour tour, we managed to go through so many things apart from Ceramics & Tiles & Pottery (Hagia Sophia, Seven Hills, etc.). Very much recommended !

    A very nice place to be and you will have a wonderful time if you love the sea life. Neatly done and superbly massive. Don't miss the mall in Florya as well.

    You can easily take the Marmarai line from Sirkeçi and travel via the magnificent rail line. You can use your istanbulkart (the red card for Istanbul public transportation).

    We booked a four hour accompanied private shopping trip with City of Sultans and it was wonderful. It was one of the highlights of our holiday and was reasonably priced. Our guide Burish was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We were picked up by taxi at our hotel and firstly went to the Spice Market. Our guide helped with price conversion and negotiated with shop owners if needed. We then went on to the Grand Bazaar, the Blue Mosque, the Hippodrome and the cisterns. The trip included far more than we had expected and we were taken by taxi to all the places of interest and then picked up nearby. We really enjoyed this tour and we would definitely recommend this excellent firm.

    It was a great experience touring Grand Bazaar and other stores in the area. Engin - my tour guide, is very knowledgeable and told me a lot about history and politics of the state while touring the shops. He’s given me advice on different products and I bought great souvenirs! Engin was also kind to guide me to the ferry to get to the hotel faster after the shopping. I would be lost in the grand Bazaar without my tour guide, thank you so much!

    Derya’s private tour in Istanbul was an unforgettable experience! We booked her for three days and feel like we have really made the most of our time here.

    Her remarkable knowledge of the Grand Bazaar meant we could quickly find the items on our 'hit list'. She also guided us to the best spots for authentic Turkish cuisine and epic breakfasts (tip: don't have breakfast at your hotel if you go on a food tour).

    Exploring Istanbul’s main sights, including the very instagram-worthy cisterns, was made even more special with the luxury of a custom Maybach vehicle - we felt like celebrities, but it wasn't expensive.

    She was more than happy to tailor our trip to our interests, and it felt like we were exploring the city with a close friend. She also seems to know everyone!

    We highly recommend Derya as a private tour guide in Istanbul. Her extensive knowledge of the Grand Bazaar, expertise in Turkish cuisine, impeccable service, and luxury transport option surpassed all expectations. Thank you, Derya, for creating such a memorable visit to Istanbul.
