We thoroughly enjoyed the Istanbul culinary tour (despite the fact that we gained some weight.. :) Yilmaz Özlük is the sweetest and funniest man I've met in a very long time and I would highly recommend his tours to anyone visiting Istanbul and Turkey. You will not be disappointed.

Our family's trip to Turkey: Istanbul,Capadoccia and Ephesus was extraordinary. We got to hire an amazing tour guide (whose name was Eyup from True Blue Tours) who went with us to every place we needed to go to. He was very specific but not too specific that we would get bored in the middle of our tour. He was straight to the point and only gave us the important facts about the place. Also he was very patient with our family. Even though we were on a timely schedule he never got angry when we would decide to stop at one point and as he says "take a million pictures". He simply just made us take our time and he adjusted our schedule to what we were doing.

It was as we would say "a chill tour". For a big group like ours, this was a great idea. It got the kids listening because it wasn't that long and it got adults hyped up about the place too. If you're family has a lot of shoppers just like ours, True Blue Tours' tour guides are the perfect selection. As long as you tell them that you would like to see the country and shop too they will stop by the outlets, the carpet factory, the flee market, the mosques, all the important places (ex. Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque) YOU NAME IT! It's like they help you have fun and learn AT THE SAME TIME!

Our tour guide brought us to the airports every time we would switch towns and they went along too. As long as we were in Turkey, our tour guide was there to help us thorough everything. When we got to one place, Eyup would (as our permanent tour guide) would show us around BUT he would also get someone who was also from True Blue Tours but was an expert in that town. For example, when we arrived in Capadoccia, aside from having Eyup to explain to us the place he got another tour guide who was more of an "expert" on that spot. In Capadoccia this tour guides name was Berk. He was kid friendly and was also very interested in the information he was giving us during our tour in Capadoccia.

Eyup and Berk are just one of the many tour guides that we have experienced in Turkey that are truly and remarkably passionate, helpful and friendly during their work. They made our trip not only very enjoyable but they also made it interesting. I highly recommend TRUE BLUE TOURS if you end up going to Turkey because of their efficiency also if you're traveling with a big family... these tour guides will surely make it a trip you and your family whether young or old will never forget.

Thanks a lot, shoppingtraveler101. We know that flexibility is an important part of our job. We do our best to be able to accommodate our clients' spur-of-the-moment wishes. Nice to hear that you had so much fun... it is the point, isn't it? You are here on vacation and so it must be fun... after all, learning is fun, no? We are glad that your experience with us was so satisfactory. Best wishes, Eyup.
