We did 8 hour private tour with Kadri (our speaking local guide excels Italian). In addition to taking us around the city he gave us excellent information at the Blue Mosque, Santa Sophia, basilica Cisterna. The accompaniment to Beyoğlu with a walk from Taksmin square along the entire main shopping street (via Indipendenza) was also very useful. He helped us to get around with the convenient public transport and useful information on the organization of the following days that we did independently! He also advised us to purchase a museum card for 4 days which saved us money and time (skipping the queues at the ticket offices) Thank you thank you thank you

OMG I am not sure where to start our guide Cicek was amazing she was pleasant and very knowledgeable,she made us feel at home and walk us through all the main landmark ,caring she allowed us to customize the tour how we see fit and go with our pace,showed us great hidden jam in one word my friend and I had a great time and we're happy with the tour and Cicek's lovely service! this is definitely a great way to explore Instanbul we did the one day option and enjoyed it!

Dilara got it absolutely right. From the order of presentation to the background information to the quick line advancement to the great personality, I would honestly take this tour again. So, since I will be here again in spring, I will do just that. Bravo. Well-done!!

Fantastic two days. The guide (Kadir) was a wealth of historical knowledge at every stop. Packs a tremendous amount in two days. Highly organized and allows time for insights at every stop. Perfect experience

Very well organized tour with a guide speaking perfect French and very cultured
