Any human being with a sliver of curiosity will appreciate Istanbul, be captivated by it, admire it. But what Hanifi will do is set you on course to loving this magnificent city. Through his passion, knowledge, enthusiasm, patience, humour and good heartedness, he will inspire you, get you in the Istanbul state of mind and help you forge long-lasting memories. One thing to keep in mind though, you will most probably want to come back!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your beautiful words. It is hard to reply sometimes. This time Rumi Came to help me with its lovely philosophy. For me his words are gifts to everyone.

Hanifi is an excellent tour guide. We had an amazing time. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and kind. It was wonderful to see the beautiful sights of Istanbul but more importantly to learn about the culture, customs and faith of the Turkish people. The itinerary was perfect!

Hanifi definitely deserves a 5+ star rating. We took the one day Istanbul highlights walking tour. He is an exceptional guide, very charming and knowledgeable and full of details on the history of the sites. He knows the quickest ways to get into the mosques and museums, saving us lots of time. We thoroughly enjoyed his company (and singing) and would definitely recommend him to others.

Hanifi was an exceptionally great guide. He is cheerful and fun to be around -- the man sings while he works! Hanifi has a true love of Istanbul and is joyful in his descriptions and stories. We had one day and he took us to the Blue Mosque, the Hippodrome, the Basilica Cistern, the Islamic Museum of Art, the Sulemaniye Mosque and Pierlotti hill. The tour flowed and he understood the pace we wanted. He also took us to a great lunch. We will hire him again when we return.

We spent 24 hours in Istanbul and the tour prepared by Hanifi was outstanding. We were a party of 8, with only few hours for the tour. Our plane arrived late so Hanifi was able to arrange a fantastic visit to the main sites of Istambul, including the Haiga Sophia, Blue Mosque, Cisterns, Hipodrome, Bazar and next day a boat tour around the city. The boat and the van arranged by Hanifi were beautiful and above expectations. Hanifi knows the city very well. Great conversation and restaurante recommendation.

Hanifi is a kind and knowledgeable person. He knows Istanbul inside and out and you will be in great hands while you are with him. He took us to all of the traditional tourist spots, but because we had four days with him we were also able to enjoy the local flavor. I don't believe we would have enjoyed Istanbul as much as we did without him. You won't be disappointed if you choose him!

I can't say enough good things about Hanifi and our 3-day tour with him. There was no question that he didn't know the answer to. And he has a wonderful sense of humor, and his English is perfect. Hanifi was also very accommodating with adjusting our tour at the last minute when my mom sprained her ankle and ended up in a wheelchair the night we arrived. He insisted on pushing her wheelchair for us all 3 days and took such good care of her. I travel a lot, and Hanifi is the best tour guide I've ever had.

I am so happy I booked a 2 Day Private Tour with Hanifi Y. He is incredibly personable, knowledgeable and made the tour fun and informative. A great perk of using a pro-tour guide, is that we barely had to wait in any lines. We always were ushered to the front. I was able to spend as much or little time as I wanted at each site. When I was done, we moved on. Hanifi was a great guide made a lot if information, easily digestible. I HIGHLY recommend Hanifi to guide you through Istanbul!!

Hanifi took us to additional places in Istanbul that he had selected, on our second layover tour with him. They were all interesting and worth seeing. He was waiting for us at the airport at the agreed upon meeting place. His English is very good, although he said a few words that we had trouble understanding. He has an interesting personality, more forceful and direct than other guides, but not unpleasant or disagreeable.

Hi Hanifi, a slightly delayed rating from me for the tour last October. You were absolutely excellent. Spoke fluent English which is a real must to start off with. Took us to so many interesting places, extremely knowledgeable about your home city, there wasn't a question you could not answer and it was great talking to you about the cultural aspects of the city too. Eating the plate of big white beans in one of the local cafes will live long in the memory! I would highly recommend Hanifi. Regards Nigel

Hanifi is a super-friendly, kind, accommodating, punctual and well-educated family man. We loved his anecdotes and snippets of eclectic information. He is a literate man who loves to tell a story. He knows Istanbul inside out and loves to show it off to visitors. Our 3 days with Hanifi were comfortable, stress free, fun and we visited many sights that we otherwise would not have had time or energy to see. He also went out of his way to help us with special arrangements. Thank you Hanifi!

Hanifi provided a terrific 2 day tour of Istanbul. Hanifi's timing generally beat the crowds and a perk of having a registered guide is they can buy the tickets without waiting in line, a huge advantage. The cruise was outstanding, just long enough to get a good feel for the Bosporus and its environs. A special treat was the lunch location, 6 floors up with unobstructed views of Hagia Sophia/Blue Mosque. He did a great job of alternating riding in the car and walking. We felt completely safe, at all times

Hanifi does not like to stand with the other guides or hold a sign with the client's name, so instead he gave us what he admits were incorrect instructions to meet him at another place at the airport. After an anxious hour, we finally found him. But for this mixup, I would have given him 5 stars. He speaks very good English, is personable, humorous, and knowledgeable. When we go to Turkey again, I will try to book another of his tours.

The 3 days with Hanifi were great. He is quite knowledgeable of the Turkish history and that of all the sites we visited. He is very talkative and ready to give information. I strongly recommend the 3-day tour. We got to see all the important sites. Do not attempt to drive in Istanbul on your own if you are not a local: It is some times scary, but having a local guy like Hanifi driving you around makes it fun.

He made sure the itinerary was inclusive of culture, fun and history to sums up to Istanbul's vibrant colours.

Wonderful leisurely 4 days tour with Hanifi. The planning of the itinerary was well executed. A lot of the queuing was cut when you have a guide and this could not have been done if exploring on own. If short on time and not planning a shopping spree, the tour could perhaps be cut to 3 from 4 days. RT
