What people are saying about Istanbul

A perfect introduction to an amazing city, Istanbul

This was my first time in Istanbul, so having two days with a guide was essential for understanding this amazing city and its history. On my own I could not have found my way to so many places, or learned so much. Saban Sezer was an excellent guide; I always have questions to ask that many visitors would not, as I am interested in Islamic architecture and as I live in Egypt and am interested in how in the past Turkish traditions have transferred to Egypt, Saban was patient with my questions and with me wanting to spend longer in some places that interested me. He gave information even about places you don't have time to visit in your first two days, places we just passed on the cruise, and that makes me want to return for more exploring of Istanbul.

Dream tour aka amazing night out in Kadikoy

I can't even explain how much I enjoyed this "tour". Lucky for me I was the only one booked, so it was just me and my amazing guide, Cetin. It was my first night in Istanbul and this tour was the perfect introduction to the food, culture and history of the city. The food I tried was INCREDIBLE and the number of restaurants we visited was extremely generous. I would recommend this tour for anyone visiting Istanbul. I'll be back to do it again. Thanks again Cetin. This experience felt more like a night out with a friend!

Delicious & fantastic way to view the cit with a great guide

We had a highly enjoyable and delicious tour of the Asian side of Istanbul, with our fantastic guide Cetin (an ex-chef!). The food we sampled was both local and full of flavors, and we really appreciated the range of flavors and tastes we were able to sample. Not only did we learn about the food we did try, but also a bit about other foods in other parts of the city that we should go back to try, and we got a nice list of great restaurants to try. I would definitely return for this again!

Kadir is a patience and knowledgeable guide.

Kadir Kucekeren was absolutely fantastic. He is very knowledgeable and we saved lots of time enjoying Istanbul with him. He knows all the secrets to truly enjoy the city in a safe and efficient manner. He personalized our trip to fit our cultural interests - like Süleymaniye Mosque. He is very caring of his guests; he helped my mother up and down the old city steps. He is a true gentleman and I will always be grateful to him for his patience and understanding.

Ideal tour on your first night in Istanbul

We booked this tour on our first night in Istanbul. It was the best decision I made. Ayhan, our tour guide brought us to places where the local people go. The food samplers tasted delocious and it gave us a good impression of Turkish cuisine. Ayhan was also informative and helpful. He spoke English quite well. I highly recommend this tour and tour guide.
