Istanbul: Guided Off-the-Beaten-Path Experience
- Small group
- Duration: 7 hours
Salih, my tour guide, was absolutely fantastic and full of knowledge. He was very understanding with my needing to reschedule and immediately offered an alternate time to accommodate. His English is impeccable and his knowledge and understanding of his city of Istanbul is vast. I'm so grateful I took his tour as we got to be around the wonderful locals and take a break and get out of the touristy, yet history rich neighborhoods of Istanbul. He is full of great tips on what to do to get the most out of the city. I'm very happy I took his tour and would take again.
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.
The tour was very interesting, Istambul is a magic Place. Our guide Mev is a very Kind and prepared person she explained everithing in the best way and trasmitted us a lot of turkey culture and their habit. The lunch was very good. Thank you Mev (our Maria) for the unfogetteble trip. Monica-Tino-Milena-Luca-Maurizio
A fantastic experience, I recommend to anyone interested in places, history, and stories that are in front of your nose but hidden in a way that just insider finds them book a tour. We enjoyed it very much !
I had a 19-hour layover in Istanbul and decided not to spend the time at the airport. I spent the day touring the city, walking approximately 9 miles. Incredible experience.
