Just returned from first time in Istanbul after a cruise thru Greek Isles. Met up with Sam at our hotel. Best guide experience we have ever had and have had many in Italy, France, Mexico and many other countries.
Sam patiently showed us thru many gorgeous sights with no entry line waits ( very important due to zillions of people standing in line) , great restaurants,a boat ride on the Bosphorus river.Cant say enough about his service. Will see him again on future Istanbul trips. (Loved the city, too much to see and do in 3 days).

Me and my husband recently have been to Istanbul and We had done little research to find a tour guide on tripadvisor, before we came. Having read some of the reviews, we decided to book Sam for 4 days as a guide. He responded our e-mails promptly and always showed a big patient. Now, We are so glad that we made the right decision. He did a great job. We enjoyed it so much. He certainly showed us all wonderful treasures in such an enjoyable and comfortable way. We definitely recommend him.

We had the distinct pleasure of having Sam as our guide when we visited Istanbul in May 2013. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 days in his very capable hands and he was more than able to tell us ALL about the history and culture of this magnificent city. Sam made the guide books come alive with his understanding and love of all things Turkish. He had all the answers to each and every question and his professionalism (he knew the right people to make each entry 'fast' with minimal queuing) made each visit exciting. Sam was a joy to have met...get ready for our next visit. We thank you so much.

My husband and I booked Sam for a couple of days in Istanbul. He came earl each morning to met us at our hotel and spoke terrific English. He is very knowledgeable and accommodating to our many requests; he was also eager to add a few more stops to the itinerary! First day, We had an informative and very entertaining tour of Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the Basilica Cistern, the Topkapi Palace, the Byzantine Hippodrome and the Grand Bazaar. Second day of our tour, he arranged a day for all the rest fabulous sites within the old city walls, such as the Chora Church, Suleymaniye Mosque, Aqueducts, City Walls and the Spice Market. We so much enjoyed our stay in Istanbul and mainly thank Sam for a wonderful experience of turkish culture. An excellent experience overall and one that I would recommend.

We ( family of 5) recently went on a cruise of the Mediterranean. We had a wonderful day with Sam (our guide) who showed us the many wonders of Istanbul including Hippodrome, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern and Topkapi Palace, (he took us in the museums without having a long line for ticket) he was very fun and knowledgable and kept us all entertained through a long day. It was the best tour of all the places we went, including tours of Rome, Florence, and Barcelona. Sam knew exactly where to take us and all of the answers to our questions. We had the best lunch at his suggestion and it was delicious! He walked us through all of the places, gave such a good description of all the sights we visited. We felt we had a good friend among us throughout the day. I highly recommend Sam - everything was exactly as expected
