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!

Our day trip with Ayla was an experience. Very good German tour guide with in-depth knowledge of history and safe local knowledge. Ayla responded to our requests, even if it exceeded the time limit, and also gave us a good insight into the everyday life of Istanbul. If we had had more time, we would have liked to spend another interesting day with her. Thanks Ayla

A very nice travel companion with humor and good contacts! Because of the closure at the mosque on Tuesday we did an additional Bosphorus tour! Because she had contacts we could even sit in the cab! In the end we invited them to dinner because of their great tour! If you take German ask for an Ayla !!!

Excellent Tour Guide

Excellent tour guide-Onder Cankurt. He is familiar with history. The wonderful and detailed explanations let us experience the situation. He also shared the excellent location of the photo. We are very satisfied with this trip and the tour guide.

Very interesting tour and with Ayla we had an excellent guide who managed to guide us through the long waiting line. That was great and saved us hours of waiting. Ayla inspired us with her knowledge of the sights of Istanbul!
