    An excellent night boat cruise with dinner (&alcohol) and entertainment included. Very polite staff, good programme, scheduled comfortable transfer from and to the hotel. Absolutely good value for the money. All arranged by Mr Emre and his agency colleagues, excellent job!

    Emre ist ein sehr guter Reiseführer. Mit seiner freundlichen Art und mit viel Motivation verstand er es, uns die Highlights dieser Tour näher zu bringen. Wir empfehlen ihn gern weiter.

    Bismillah It was our great holiday and tour in Turki with Mr Emre Önal was our tour guide. We went to see beautiful Bursa and it’s beautiful snowy mountain. We cruised the strait of Bosporus up to Buyukada. Staying in Istanbul was also a great chance to visit historic sites of Anatolia, including Blue Mosque, and its surrounding area. We also went to visit a great history site of Abu Ayoub Al Anshari. Spices market, grand market were among other places that were so enjoyable we have visited. Turki keeps a lot of beautiful and historical sites to visit. We also went to Kayseri, Cappadocia and had opportunity to visit our Australian friend living in Nevsheher. In general, Turki is very beautiful, the creativity of it people. The Turkish people were very welcoming by offering us with different democratic choices of tea, black tea, apple tea, etc. Love to come back one day Alhamdulillah

    Emre and his team are awesome. They were professional, flexible and reliable. I booked a group tour for my family and friends as part of my wedding weekend. We had 40 guests and they all had an amazing time. The buses were clean and the tour was exceptional. I would recommend them a 100 times!!! Don’t hesitate, send Emre a message and book the tour!!

    Journée fantastique avec notre guide Mr Emre Önal, riche de connaissances et d’un français parfait. Nous avons découvert le marché égyptien, juste avant de nous embarquer pour une superbe croisière de presque 2h sur le Bosphore, en longeant les 2 rives d’Istanbul. Puis déjeuner un excellent restaurant très colorés, dont j’ai oublié le nom ( restaurant Kybele).Nous sommes allés ensuite du côté asiatique, pour un vue panoramique imprenable sur les 2 continents ! Journée dense et inoubliable avec un guide incomparable ! À faire absolument !!

    Boat ride was great . Lunch was incredible . Other stops were just average . It could have included a major sight like Grand bazaar or the Sofya

    Bosphorus itself a magical place and to have the trip to two continents is an additional charm. You can enjoy the difference of the tow civilization watching the old and old cultures. Asian and Western touch is visible. Traveling under the Bosphorus bridge is interesting and it reminds you Golden Gate Bridge San Francisco
