Volkan was a great guide, very knowledgeable, passionate about the history of Turkey and Istanbul. We enjoyed talking to him about not just the history but the current situations and politics of the day. He was attentive but knew when to give us some time and was great at taking photos! He also added some local insights for us as we specifically asked for a few recommendations and they turned out great.
The tour was extremely well organized. The local guide met us as arranged at our hotel and we took it from there. We suggested we didn’t want to use public transport and he was happy with our suggestion. The tour was a bit customized in accordance with our expectations. We were super happy with everything and hope to be using the same company for guided tour next time we are in Istanbul.
Osgur our guide was fantastic. He was very well informed not only on where we visited but on any other advice/ help we needed - on Istanbul! We had our 9 year old son with us, and even he was interested! Osgur really brought the history alive for us. If you’ve not been to Istanbul before and have limited time- this really is the way to do it, much less queuing and no hassles. Thank you!
This was a wonderful tour! Our tour guide Hasan was outstanding and made our day a very special one. His knowledge of all the places we visited (Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar and Hagia Sophia) and the history of the city were very impressive. And Hasan’s Spanish was fantastic! Highly recommended!
The tour guide was great. but unfortunately the weather was pretty bad and the river cruise was cancelled. and because it was booked on a Sunday most things where closed. if I knew that before I would have changed the day. but it was still a great day experiencing Turkey the Palace is absolutely stunning
