OZ the tour guide, is simply great! He doesn't offer cookie-cutter tours like the others which is wonderful, and instead, tries his very best to customize it to your likes and desires.

This was my second time visiting Istanbul in one year. I was so enchanted and captivated by the city the first time around that I had to come back as soon as possible. Our day with Semih was excellent. He was intelligent and engaging in addition to providing us with interesting perspective per the current situation in the country.

This is a fake review written by one of our competitors. The mentioned tour guide in the review didn't conduct any tour in last july for our company. And the user wrote this review was asked to provide us details about the tour he attended but he couldn't. We informed tripadvisor about this issue and hopefully this fake review will be removed.

Oz was knowledgeable, engaging and with him we saw far more than we could have hoped to do independently. Just the right balance of fact, history, politics and food. Highly recommended

We absolutely enjoyed our time with Ozzy He was professional and knowledgeable.He knew of off the beaten path places that made our time so more fun and interesting.
Oz is fun and engaging and we started out as tourist/guide and ended up as friends.

I was in Istanbul as part of the Honors Program in my school. We had the pleasure of having Semih as our guide. Semih is very knowledgeable of the history and the places to visist. You won't be dissapointed!
