This was my third visit to Istanbul but undoubtedly the most memorable one thanks to Tarik's excellent tour. We found them online with no prior reference but from the outset Tarik & Kadir were very prompt in response & coordination to tailor make a program for our requirements. Tarik was with us for 2 private half-day tours & did an excellent job of not only the sightseeing but also making sure we were well looked after - he managed to make the most of a bad situation when we were caught in an unanticipated torrential downpour. He also took us to some amazing local restaurants, a cute cafe with panoramic views of the Galata tower & some of the best carpet stores. With regard to sightseeing, he has excellent knowledge & is able to explain in a detailed yet captivating manner so that one is not bored but actually engrossed in the history. I am still able to remember many of the details & facts which he gave us - often forgotten if it is with a less engaging guide! Highly highly recommend for an amazing experience of Istanbul!

We can’t speak highly enough of Tarik’s tours. Whenever we fly with Turkish Airlines, we always stay over and book tours with Istanbul Guided Private Tours. Not only do we leave with a better understanding of Turkish history, we learn more of our western history. We’ll be back again soon, Tarik!

This was possibly the best guided tour that we have ever had. Anyone looking to experience Istanbul should book this tour as far out in advance as possible. The email interaction was great as there were many questions answered, and based on our inquires, the tour was tailored to what we wanted. Online, Kadir was a pleasure to work with and our guide, Mr. Tarik, was awesome. We were met at our hotel and set out on a walking tour of the City – stops include the Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, Hippodrome, Grand Bazar and more. This is a walking tour, so anyone going on it should plan on walking a lot. But our guide was very informative and eager to share his city with us. Topics covered included Roman, Greek, Ottoman, Turkish and Byzantium history, religion, architecture, language, politics, and more. Our guide took us to off the beat stores and locations based on what we were interested in and at the end of the day, we were tired, but not exhausted. Anyone visiting Istanbul would be well encouraged to reach out and inquire about a tour – you will not be disappointed.
