We hired Soner for our daytrip in Istanbul and he was great host and ambassador of the city.

Soner picked us up at our hotel and he drove us to the Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia and the underground Cistern. At all the hot spots we got to skip the large lines thanks to Soner’s tour guide pass, and he came prepared with our tickets. Avoiding the painfully long lines was alone, worth the cost of this tour.

After lunch at the Pudding Shop (very good) we went to the Topkapi Palace and Grand Bazaar. The Palace presented amazing views of the Istanbul, but the Grand Bazaar was ok. We prefer the spice market.

Soner was warm, friendly and highly knowledgeable about Istanbul. We would highly recommend his tours.

We had left our tour bookings till the last minute and Soner came to the rescue with a private tour for me and my daughter. Bypassing the long queues was a bonus! I could hear other tour guides droning voices - but our lovely guide was full of enthusiasm for his city and had so much knowledge of Istanbul's fascinating history. He was able to answer any questions we had. A couple nearby heard Soner's description and said "where can we get a guide like you"! After our walk around tour, Soner took us for a spin around th streets of Istanbul before dropping us off at our apartment. A wonderful day and we got to see all the sights we wanted to see with no hassle. Well worth the money.

We only had three days in Istanbul, so decided to book a walking tour on the first day as a speedy introduction to the city. We chose this company and tour as it was well reviewed on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. There were only four participants and our guide was thus able to tailor the tour to our individual interests and questions. We felt privileged, compared to other tours with groups of up to 25-30!
Our guide was Ebru. She was warm, friendly and knowledgeable and ensured the day was a success for myself and my partner, a very good introduction to Istanbul. Without Ebru, it would have taken us the whole of our stay to see what we did on the first day. It left us two days to explore the city further. I could not recommend this tour and guide more,

Our party of four, plus another couple, went on the day-long tour of classic Istanbul. Everything you read here about Soner is true: he is so knowledgable, genial, and it was great to skip the long lines and just enter the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, etc. Soner even added an attraction for us--the Basilican cistern, which is just not to be missed. And he took us to a great place for lunch. Really, you could not ask for a better guide than Soner. I expect that, at some point, he will be very difficult to book, so call early.
