For my family and me the tour was in connection with the appartment we rented. So it was the perfect start into getting to know the neighbourhood. Our guide was fairly knowledgable, super flexible and attending to our wants and needs. So besides having fun on the tour, we learned about the place, felt the vibe, and had a pocket full of ideas to take it from there. All thumbs up, great job!

We did the walking tour with Necla in July, 2012. What a wonderful way to really get to know the Beyoglu district of Istanbul. We were shown so many wonderful little places in the backstreets and feel that we got to see a side of Istanbul that would otherwise have been hidden from us. We loved hearing all the little historical stories. We also enjoyed experiencing all the hidden eateries!

We returned to Istanbul a month later with my parents and had a great time hunting down the places that Necla had shown us again so that we could enjoy them once more. I can highly recommend this outing. We had two kids, aged 10 and 14, with us and they were just as enthralled as we were.

This was our first trip to Instanbul, and we where very fortunate that this walk was suggested to us by the manager of the villa we stayed in. The half day was very informative, it allowed us( later) to comfortable take public transport, order food, set up the rest of our visit with well reccommnded things to do, and in additon we saw parts of Istanbull we probably would not have. We highly reccommend this tour, especially if you are staying outside mainstream accomodation( private villas) etc. Daygu is only too happy to suggest places to eat, what to order, help you shop in a supermarket, find and buy local sim cards for the phone, as wel as a very informative guide.
