This is one of the best walking tours! Our tour with Aykut was interesting and fun. Aykut was very knowledgeable about the sites we visited and shared the information in a very interesting way. His tour was very organized too. We were also able to skip the long lines because of him. Aykut took us to a delicious local restaurant and accommodated all our requests during the tour.

Our first day in Istanbul was such a pleasurable experience, thanks to Aykut, our guide who made us feel like old friends. He loves his city and is so knowledgeable of history and culture, but never overwhelmed us with information. He entertained and educated us, was perceptive of our needs, flexible, never rushed us, accommodated all our sightseeing and shopping requests, and went beyond the call of duty to find me a specific ring in the Grand Bazaar. Aykut is excellent - the best in Istanbul!

This was our first trip to Turkey and spending our first full day with Aykut was a great way to see the major sites of the Old City and to get a great introduction to Turkish food, culture, and history. Aykut was a wonderful guide--enthusiastic, knowledgeable, flexible, and thoughtful. He got tickets ahead of time, which saved us lots of waiting (even in March, the lines are long at the major sites). By the end of our day with Aykut, we had gained not only great experiences and insights but also a friend.

Aykut was fantastic, very passionate about his city. My group were impressed with the tour, enjoyed all the history and information. Aykut was very patient with us and we would book with him again. We arrived in a very busy religious festival and he got us everywhere with an excellent driver. Knew his city extremely well. thank you so much Aykut.

Aykut was a wonderful guide. He arrived at our hotel 10 minutes before we were do to leave and provided us with an informative and interesting walking tour of the city. Everything we asked he answered. During the time we were together, we made it to all the sites we were interested in. He suggested a restaurant for a typical Turkish lunch and it was delicious. Aykut stayed with us for an additional half hour, not rushing us at all. It was a wonderful day. We tipped an additional 10%.
