    I booked for a 3-day tour of Istanbul. I had the best tour guide, Miss Ezgi. She just went above and beyond to make my tour of Istanbul a memorable, fun and exciting one! Everyday she came before 0930am to start our walking tour, she knows the history of all the places we have visited and also she makes it engaging.
    Since it was just the two of us doing the tour we finished early seeing all the sites listed on the tour itineraries and she will suggest other places to visit and we did.
    Not to mention she takes good pictures and videos! Kudos to Miss Ezgi for making my tour of Istanbul a truly memorable and to cherish it for a life time! I'm glad she's in your team!

    Awesome day with our guide, Muhsin, on private walking tour taking in the major historic sites in Old Town. Muhsin was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the places we visited and Turkish culture. He pick us up from our hotel, organized lunch and took us home at the end of the day. He also had fast passes so we could skip the long lines at the sites. Great time, would highly recommend this company and Muhsin in particular.

    We highly recommend you make this your first trip when you arrive to the city! We cannot speak highly enough about our tour guide, Selen. She gave us a warmhearted welcome to Istanbul on our first day here. You will eat fantastic food in a truly hospitable environment. Selen shared with such an open heart about life in Istanbul, culture, and how she sees the world; this allowed those of us on the tour to more deeply connect with each other and learn about each other's cultures, too! This tour went beyond our expectations, helping us navigate the public transport system, get an understanding of the city's history, and feel more comfortable figuring out what foods we loved and wanted to try more of, as well as what foods we wanted to try next. You won't regret investing in this experience.

    Great itinerary allowing me to see all of the sights. Great communication, well organized allowed me to not worry about any of the details. The day was sprinkled in with local culture highlights (carpet store, Turkish delight, etc.). Guide, Songül, was fantastic! Very knowledgeable, spoke very good English and designed the day based on my needs. Highly recommend her!

    Ozy was our private tour guide to the Old City in Istanbul. He was one of the best tour guides I’ve ever had. He was professional, friendly, honest and extremely knowledgeable. He took us to the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, the Hippodrome, Topkapi Palace and the Grand Bazaar. He also took us to a local place to eat Doner for lunch. Ozy was very informative and we felt as if he was a friend showing us around. I highly recommend this tour and to request him to be your tour guide if you can. He goes above and beyond his role as tour guide. We really appreciated how he assisted us with instructions how to take the metro and helping us with the taxi. Although our stay in Istanbul was short, I felt that Ozy took us to see many places and educated us with so much history and culture that we were able to gain a true sense of the city. This was a wonderful experience that we will never forget.

    Well organized, good communication, high end experience. The team made it very easy to find the pick up location. Yacht was high end and provided a relaxing experience. Guide on boat delivered a nice balance of education, fun and allowing guests to just enjoy the ride.

    The tour was an amazing and informative experience. We really got to dive deep into the history and conditions of the ANZACs and their fight in Gallipoli. Would highly recommend!

    Gülşen is absolutely fantastic - she is so knowledgeable, patient and kind!!!
    We stayed by Haiga Sofia and she met us at the hotel. As this was our first day in the city, we relied on her completely to show us around and it was the best decision - the day was all about learning the history and we were in lines no more than a total of 5 minutes, as licensed guides get a separate line (something I didn’t know in advance but was very happy about when I saw the long lines). The tour was at our pace - we had an elderly person - but we got to see everything and learned so much! The best money I spent in the city - we got so much out of the day and spent it with the most wonderful person! Gülşen truly made us feel welcome in Istanbul and felt like family by the end of the day. Thank you!!!
