My husband and I had a 8 hour stop over in Istanbul and decided to book a walking tour. Soner was our guide and he was awesome. He was friendly and so knowledgeable, answered all of our questions and told us so many great stories of the history of Istanbul. We loved the sights we saw, Blue Mosque, Sophia Hagia, etc, it was great to have him as our guide as we learned so much. He is also so passionate about what he does which made such a difference. We did a bit of everything in 8 hours and even visited the Turkish bazaar, he helped us navigate the bazaar and took us to some cool shops. We highly recommend this tour company and our tour guide!

Your excellent reviews prompted me to try this company in preference to the shore excursions operated by the cruise ship. THis proved to be one of my better decisions! We were met by Ali and the mini bus driver at the pier, loaded our luggage and were joined by another couple from the ship and then collected two other couples along the way. Ali was an excellent tour leader: very knowledgeable, understanding, patient, informative, personable and a good communicator. Ali went out of his way to please, fitting in an unsheduled visit to the cisterns on the recommendation of a member of the party. Following the visits and an inclusive lunch over several hours we were each delivered to our hotels. A wonderful tour and great value for money!

Soner was excellent at answering emails promptly prior to our arrival in Istanbul. Two of us had a private tour with Burcu. She was perfect for us! She is very knowledgeable and was able to answer every question we had and she is clearly passionate about her country and it's history. She was extremely flexible and also has a great sense of humor. We really appreciated the fact that Burcu also noticed that we liked to see local haunts and took us to to very interesting Medressa/cafe for a Turkish coffee. Burcu also took the time to make a list of restaurants for us to visit during our stay. When we return to Turkey, we will request her as our guide again.

We were so lucky to have Ozlem to ourselves for the day. She was punctual informative a fountain of useful information and gave us a great insight to istanbul and ottoman history. Ozlem took us on our walking city tour which is the best way to see the sights. We had a delightful lunch with her with traditional turkish food and then onward to other hidden treasures that we would not have found without her. Highly recommend this company.

The excellent reviews were true! We had an amazing day with our guide Uzlam and our small group (9 in total including Uzlam). We met Uzlam, at the exit of the pier. She first took us to the Topkapi palace, knowing that it will be much more crowded later. We had a chance to enjoy the palace with only few other people there. When we were leaving, the place was packed! The small group allowed us to be flexible and "easier" to move around. Uzlam was simply wonderful : knowledgable, friendly, and funny. This tour is definitely a highlight of our trip. Oh and plus, she took us to an EXCELLENT restaurant with typical Turkish meals (and rated by Trip advisor as well).. very delicious. One last point, which was a great bonus, is that she did not take us to an "optional" carpet/jewellery store, as many other shore excursion tours will do. This is definitely a great way to see Istanbul if you are here for only a short time (for us: 1 1/2 day only). Thank you very much Uzlam!!
