We spent a day tour with Oskan and we enjoyed a lot! Besides his knowledge of ancient history of Turkey , we got to know the modern history and current politicial situation. Oskan is very open mind and discuss politics and religion. We can say that our visit in Istanbul would not have been the same without his guidance. Dont' miss it!

We took a private half-day walking tour with our group and we were very happy with our guide. Appealing stories in good English; well-mannered. All our tickets were bought in advance, which meant, to our surprise, that we could skip the waiting lines for Hagia Sophia.
At the end of the tour he took us, as requested, to a nice restaurant where we could enjoy lunch. I would certainly recommend this organization. Too bad we only had time for the half day tour!

We had a wonderful day with Ram, the highlight of which was poking around in antique stores in a hidden neighborhood in Istanbul. He was so knowledgeable! I recommend him highly and am looking forward to our next trip to Turkey when we hope to adventure into the Eastern part of the country with Ram.

My wife and I were delighted with our personal guide, Abdil while in Istanbul. He was very outgoing, pleasant and extremely informative. The private tour was well worth the US dollar no matter how low it is! This tour also enabled us to go right in the event and not wait on any lines. Our four hour tour could not have been better. I was looking forward for our next day planned four hour tour, but my wife was too sick to continue. Which could be a good thing because it will be a good excuse to go back. Look no further than Turkey Tours by Local Guides.

As we were on a cruise we only had one evening and the following day until 4:30pm to see the city. Abdil was a qualified guide who guided us around the city making sure we covered everything we hoped to do while in this amazing city. We particularly liked the Hagia Sophia and the Topkapia Palace. Abdil's english was really good and he never got flustered despite all the traffic jams. The Bosphoros cruise is a must and having a meal overlooking the Bosphorus was really memorable as well as the great food.
