I joined my husband to a conference at istanbul in September and somehow became the person responsible to arrange tour for many of our friends. I booked a 1 1/2 day private tour with Daily Istanbul Tours with Soner for a group of 9 people (4 couples and one single). Because we are so happy with the tour, we extended two more days of private tour for another group of 10 ladies. There are so much to see at istanbul as it was the capital for three great empires and we want to see all the main attractions in 4 days. Soner is the most patient person you could ever encountered, I had changed my itinerary and the number of people in the group many times via e-mails and phone calls. He was always professional and accommodating. He also let me set the itinerary tailored to our needs. Our guide Ebru is very proud of her country and passionate about its history. Therefore, we learned a lot from her and got to understand the people and the culture of Istanbul. We were picked up at the airport on time and they even gave as a detour to pick up a couple from a near by hotel before we headed to the city. While we were checking into the hotel, Ebru was already there waiting for us. She waited for us to finish checking and even show us how to use turkish coffee for fortune telling before we set out to see the city. We get to visit many attractions including Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, Bosphorus boat ride, Topika Palace, Rustem Pasa Mosque, ...etc. more than their standard tour in the one and half day. The 3rd and 4th day we get to see more palaces, museums, Grand Barzzar, to riding cable car to view the city. My friends and I had a wonderful experience at Istanbul. I also arranged a 3 day 2 night tour to Cappadocia and Ephasus for just my husband and myself with Daily Istanbul Tour. We are again totally happy with the service that they provided. I did not have to worry about transit, hotel, schedule and was able to enjoy the two cities. The hotels were very unique and comfortable and the food were great. Thanks to Daily Istanbul Tour, we had a memorable trip. I highly recommend everyone to use their services.
