    Great, attentive team. Excellent air conditioned van transfers from hotel. Knowledgeable and friendly guide

    Ahmet was an amazing guide with endless knowledge about Istanbul. He was flexible with our schedule to ensure we saw everything we could while spending the least amount of time waiting in line. I highly recommend this tour especially if you are visiting for the first time and your time is limited. We saw so much during our day.

    We had a great experience during our guided tour. Besides being super flexible and accomodating, he also gave us many valuable inside tips, which made our whole stay in Istanbul even more memorable. Thank you Eran for your patience, understanding and the wonderfully guided tour!

    We had a full and very informative tour with Erkan. He was an excellent guide. We saw everything we wanted to see plus more. Nothing was any problem for Erkan. We would highly recommend.

    Happy that Joseph showed us the highlights on this day. It was extremely hot and we were able to see amazing things on a shorter day than we had planned.

    Orchun Kanti was a great guide. He crafted our tour based on the sites we wanted to see, gave us really helpful voiceover, and was fun to hang out with. He also pointed us to a good place to get tea to bring back as gifts for our family. At the end of the tour, he took us to his favorite kebab spot, which was absolutely delicious. We’d highly recommend Orchun to anyone for a tour in Istanbul.

    Ahmet was knowledgeable and he conveyed quite a lot of information in engaging and easily digestible portions rather than overwhelming us with too much detail at a time. We covered quite a bit of Istanbul territory in our day with him and a strong and multi-faceted picture emerged of the life of the city, particularly the sultan's court. Being new to Istanbul and short of time, getting a guide was such a good idea and we were very happy with Ahmet's work. Highly recommended.

    Our tour guide Orchun was amazing. We started with the Topkapi Palace. Orchun navigated the lines for us and we were in quickly. He was so knowledgeable about the history and gave us so much insight, details and information. We then went to the Grand Bazar where he helped us get oriented and then gave us time to shop. We had a lovely lunch and great conversation before visiting the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Again, the detail and information provided was amazing. We enjoyed every minute. Orchun showed us exactly what we wanted to see and really customized the tour for us. He took our picture and showed great care and attention with everything. I highly recommend! This is a walking tour and anyone who goes should definitely be prepared! People should also be prepared to wait in line at the most popular destinations - we appreciated Orchun timing things to help minimize the wait.
