My wife and I hired Caner recently for a day-long private tour of some of Istabul’s most important sights, and we were so happy that we did! Caner is one of the best guides we’ve ever had – he is warm and friendly, his English is excellent, and his knowledge of Istabul’s history is incredible! He clearly loves the work that he does, and his enthusiasm is infectious. (He even takes great pictures!) Most of all, we were so appreciative of how he went out of his way to make sure that the day was as comfortable as possible for my wife, who is pregnant. We highly recommend doing this tour with Caner!

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!

My guide Ozgur spoke perfect English and Was very knowledgeable, answered all my questions and concluded the tour in the hours I wanted. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to get to know Istanbul and it’s rich history. Also, Melissa who coordinated with me via email was very professional and prompt. This is a company you can trust.

had the 1 day tour with Pinar who was great. we went to the Hagia Sophia, blue mosque, the palace, the cistern, and the bazaar. She was very knowledgeable and helpful. The bazaar experience was a bit overwhelming (things without pricetag, bartering and what not) is the only complaint, but that's not the tour guide's fault.
