Everything I didn't know I wanted. My guide is one of the most knowledgeable, thoughtful, efficient, flexible, accommodating people I have ever met & helped grow my love for not only the city, but its incredibly rich history.

It was a fantastic time. Our guide was super knowledgeable, both with the history of the area and with the best shops to get high quality items and the best food. Well worth the price; I’d definitely recommend this tour. 10/10

Emre was our tour guide and now our friend forever. Like a brother in a way, his compassion and embodiment of the Turkish charm and good nature were evident and true… We actually had him for two tours. He was knowledgeable and of course precise in his skill, he works to remain informed and fun. The tour itself was a “hodge podge” of places and things and some tastes. We took in the off the beaten path places for sure. Best tour of my experience perhaps and charming. I am grateful!

I had such a great time on this tour. Our host was fantastic - he was so warm and welcoming to us and beyond that he was knowledgeable and engaging. This tour really made for a more meaningful time in Istanbul, as he really took time to make the culture and history come alive. We also shared meals together and saw some less touristy (but still culturally significant) locations. Definitely a very worthwhile experience if you are ever in Istanbul. While the tour is long, it is never boring and there was plenty of opportunity for us to take some time to eat and drink which is nice if you want to get off your feet for a few minutes. I’d recommend this to anyone, but especially those who want to learn more about Istanbul’s rich history and culture.
