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 provided an informative, perfectly-paced and entertaining tour for us, giving an excellent introduction to the city of Istanbul and the hospitality of its people. Our party of four - two older adults and two young adults - spent an enjoyable day in Hanifi's company and would highly recommend him to anyone wanting a personalised, and personality-filled, tour of the beautiful historic heart of Istanbul.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Thank you for your lovely comments. It was pleasure to be with you. I am looking forward to read your Book Macbeth. Best wishes from istanbul.
Hanifi was wonderful, patient with four ladies, knowledgeable and engaging. He made the different sites come to life with his commentaries. You can tell that he loves his city and what he does.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments Maria. You and all ladies was awesome.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Hanifi (13 June 2015) - he was highly professional, very knowledgable and made the whole experience memorable. We had asked to incorporate a couple of sites which Hanifi did ensuring we saw a range of historic attractions in the day. Would recommend unreservedly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your great words. You are always welcome.

Hanifi did an amazing job of making an 8 hour walking tour fly by! He took us to all of the desired spots in Istanbul and was gracious enough to give us personal time to see all of the various exhibits. My favorite activity was going to the ceramic store and being able to throw a pot on the wheel! Even our teenagers had a fabulous time, highly recommend this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello THank you for your great words. :)

It is impossible to overstate how good Hanifi is. His English is great. He has a real knowledge of the history and culture of Turkey and he knows how to explain it in a very understandable way. He also has this humorous twinkle in his eye that makes him fun to be with. I hired guides in many countries and he is the best. Stan Miller, Little Rock, Arkansas USA

Hanifi was incredibly personable and knowledgeable. Do not see Istanbul without him! Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: :) Thank you Andee. It was good to be with you.
This tour made my trip to Istanbul one of the best trips I have ever had. Hanifi was incredible! He knew everything about the city and the history of the places we visited and the city itself. We had interesting conversations about languages, Islam, politics, and culture. He did not rush us and catered to our interests and answered all of our questions. My friend and I both loved this tour and would highly recommend Hanifi to anyone going to Istanbul, the best guide I have ever had.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: :) Thanks for your lovely words. We shared our knowledge.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks.
