We had a fabulous tour with our guide Aykut. Nothing was too much trouble. He was very informative & was patient with all our questions. His English was excellent & was a very personable young man. We would highly recommend him.

I visited Istanbul with my husband, a hard to please person & my mom, 65 yo non English speaking. Aykut made everyone at ease. He passionately & patiently shared the history of Egyptian Obelisk & Aya Sofya, took us to Grand Bazaar, & helped us to find a super delicious meals for lunch (I wish we could buy the pomegranate salad dressing back home!). This trip left a strong positive impression for my mom, as what I intended, mainly because we involved Aykut in, it feels like travelling with a good friend!

Aykut was a fantastic guide. Everything i look for informative, punctual, helpful, entertaining and also a really nice guy. Came prepared to give a great tour and saved us time waiting in lines for attractions by already having purchased the tickets ahead of time. First rate

Aykut is Awesome. We had such a great time. We did the half day tour and he accommodated our late arrival to Istanbul. He gave us the perfect orientation of the Old City along with recommendations on what to do and where to eat for the remainder of our weekend. We wholeheartedly recommend this tour and especially Aykut to others.

We had a wonderful 4-hour tour with Aykut and learned so much about the city and his life in Turkey. Hi guidance helped us skip the annoying lines, allowed us to learn about the people and politics of Istanbul, and was well worth the investment. Highly recommended!

Thank you to Aykut for showing us around Istanbul & helping us arrange our second day there when we would be on our own. We toured the Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, Hippodrome & Grand Bazaar with Aykut; then he set us up for the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace Museum & Bosphorus cruise the following day. Aykut is extremely knowledgeable & very friendly; he is pleased to share all kinds of information about Istanbul. We saw Aykut touring with another couple the next day, we told them they had chosen well!

Thought tour was expensive esp. As we had to pay additional 200 TKL for transport & entry to Hajik Museum. Guide v friendly and prompt. Forgot to tell us Bazaars closed on Sundays. This was annoying because wd have liked to return during protests. Guide had excellent historical knowledge
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Guide was shocked with the comments. I passed along the comments above to him and his support manager. Guide mentioned that customer told them that they had no interested in the Gran Bazaar, so for that reason he did not believe that their hours of operations was relevant information.
Great tour of the key site in Istanbul Very Professional,knowledgeable and enjoyable
Great Tour First rate from pick up at our ship to knowledge of the sites in Istanbul Would recommend to anyone

Aykut gave a terrific tour! He was extremely flexible with the schedule, discussed the options of things to see and we went at my pace. He also easily and graciously accomodated a couple of special requests. He was friendly, considerate and engaging. I would gladly hire him again or recommend him to others. Thanks for a great afternoon!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the compliment.I would be happy to guide again. All the best. Aykut
