Our guide Hikmet Köksal was just great. Not only that he can serve as an instructor for every history teacher, he is also super friendly, speaks perfect German and takes you to places in Istanbul that you would otherwise not see. The restaurants we went to together were also extremely good. If we should make it to Istanbul again, it would always be with Hikmet. So here you really do everything right when you let Hikmet show you the city.

Baris was an awesome guide to have while touring Istanbul. His knowledge of the city and its history went well beyond surface level, and we were able to have many interesting conversations where he answered all of our questions. He was also a very accommodating guide, curating the tour to our interests and questions. I recommended his guidance highly.
