We highly recommend Aykut. He is friendly, personable and knowledgeable. We are very glad we chose Aykut as he made our tour of Istanbul very enjoyable! He made sure we saw what we wanted and had suggestions for things we had not thought of doing. He answered our myriad of questions and we had amazing conversations on wide ranging topics. He was the best!

We enjoyed our tour of Istanbul very much. I believe our actual guide was Hussian. He was excellent. Besides getting us to all the places we wanted to see, he gave us great information regarding the sites and local culture. Great guide.

Istanbul is an amazing city and luckily we chose Aykut as our guide. He met the 4 of us at the boat and off we went. His knowledge of the city was extensive. As we only had one day to visit the very crowded city, we appreciated the fact that we were not following 30 other people around. He saved us time by having already purchased tickets to the major events. We were able to visit the major sites as well as have a Turkish lunch. It was a great tour with a great guide. Thank you so much, Aykut.

Aykut was wonderful! He gave our family (kids age 11, 8, and 7) a great tour of the city and all of the sites - Hagia Sofia, Cistern, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace. He was very knowledgeable about the city - he coordinated the driver who picked us up and shuttled from one place to the next. He had our tickets ready so there was no waiting in queues. Finally, he was able to "customize" our tour a bit as the kids were tired by the end of the day. I would HIGHLY recommend him!

Aykut was great. He was very knowledgeable and adapted the itinerary to the needs of the customers. His insights into the Agia Sophia and Blue Mosque were very helpful in understanding these beautiful buildings. He took us to a great, reasonably priced place for lunch and gave the shoppers ample time to visit the bazaar. I would highly recommend him for anyone who would like a local's insights into this fabulous city.

I'd just like to thank Aykut for a wonderful tour of old Istanbul. To see all that we did, in such a relatively short time was amazing. Speaking to folks who took a more traditional 'bus' tour, I realized that our group saw and experienced more than they did - a bonus when time is short. His knowledge of the city is impressive. The result of the tour will be lasting good memories for a long time to come.

Aykut introduced us to the charms of Istanbul - from the riches of the sultan's palace to the depths of the Basilica Cistern. He helped us maneuver a wheelchair in our group through the many attractions of Istanbul and throngs of visitors, and he took us to a restaurant where we enjoyed the best meal of our trip. We were impressed with Aykut's knowledge of Istanbul and its history - and charmed by his refreshing sense of humor. We hope to return to this amazing city someday.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Gary for these kind words.Hope to see you again.Best Regards.Aykut
