Our day tour in Istanbul would not have been half as exciting if we did not have a tour guide as experienced and friendly as Mr. Barish Ozkalkan. It is not possible to completely explore Hgia Sophia, Blue Mosque, the Palace, Hippodrome and the Bazar without a helpful tour guide who knows everything about the place and the history behind it. We were very lucky to have someone like him who was so knowledgeable. Please accept our heartfelt gratitude for being such a great tour operator and sending us a wonderful tour guide. You and this trip will be etched out in our memories forever. Thank you again. Krishna

Cem went above and beyond my expectations. Having studied history at the University, he was like a library full of knowledge. He knew all the ins and outs of the city, all the shortcuts, and all the highlights to see. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many things in a full day tour. Jampacked, which was exactly what I asked for. We even had time to add on a Bosphorous river cruise. Amazing lunch at a great restaurant at the spice bazaar that did not feel like a typical tourist “kick-back for the tour guide” lunch spot. Truly exceptional. Highly recommended.

We had the best experience ever with Yasin! He did a phenomenal job showing us all of Istanbul & giving us history lessons on all the areas we went too. We also got to skip the long lines for tickets which saved us so much time! He also took us to a incredible restaurant with authentic Turkish cussine! I highly recommend this for anyone trying to see Istanbul in one day!!

Our guide was great. The first tour i have taken that is private. From the beginning, we immediately felt that we weren't taking a tour. We were spending time with a friend who is knowledgeable and passionate about the history of this beautiful place.

It was a very interesting trip and the guide was very helpful for me to understand more about the culture and history of Istanbul. She speaks English very well and she knows a lot of things.
