Atakan planned a lovely day full of history and local color. He was very knowledgeable about all the sites he took us to see and provided a thoroughly enjoyable day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your nice words Susan. It was a great pleasure for me to guide you and your lovely family in Istanbul. Hope to see you again..
Atakan was an awesome guide for our family. He was so knowledgable about all the sites we visited in Instanbul. He also helped us pack in as much as we could in our one day in Instanbul and made great recommendation on what to see during our visit. The cistern was a family favorite! He also took us to a great shop to pick up some authentic turkish delight, which is so delicious. Thanks for a wonderful day Atakan, our family really appreciated it!!! We would hgihly recommend Atakan as a guide in Instanbul!

Despite the unbelievable crowds during the first weekend in May, Atakan made sure we saw the main highlights during our visit to Istanbul. We enjoyed meeting him and found his commentary to be useful and interesting.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your nice comments Linda, I really enjoyed my time with you. Yes it was very busy in those days but we did good and I couldn't do that without your help. Thank you for everything and hope to see you again..

Atakan was a wonderful guide for our group of eight people. We loved every suggestion he had for us. We got a taste of the local food and the whole feeling of Istanbul. He knew the history of the places he took us very well, and it was so interesting to find out about Turkey as a country. If you're looking for a guide for Istanbul, I recommend Atakan, he was great!

Atakan was prompt, courteous, flexible and shared a lot of knowledge with us. We enjoyed his company, and his willlingness to adjust the schedule for the ship, working from 1:00 PM until dropping us off at 7:30PM, (instead 9 to 5). In addition, he coordinated for us (Garretts only) a van ride to the airport, as he was concerned about taxi service and scams. He met us personally at the terminal at our scheduled time and waited for the driver to come. Beyond the call-of-duty. We recommend him highly!
