Safiye is an amazing tour guide!! She made me comfortable and her English was great! She has a great knowledge of the history of Istanbul! I learned so much from her-not only about the beautiful country of Turkey but also the life of a person who lives there. Safiye was very accommodating on adjusting our schedule to include some extra fun things to see and do during my visit! Not only was she a great tour guide, she became a great friend to me! I look forward to visiting Turkey and Safiye again someday!

Safiye was an excellent and exceptional guide, she was very easy to understand and had good knowledge of all things local . We left Istanbul after two most enjoyable days and would love to visit again, thanks to Safiye and her friendly and pleasant ways. We would recommend her as the best.

I really enjoyed my walking tour of Istanbul. My guide was knowledgeable about the city and the places we visited, was really helpful about shopping and finding an excellent baklava café! Most of all they were great company and helped me see and appreciate their city.
This was our first experience with tourbylocals and indeed a wonderful one! Safiye is an absolute delight. She was like our traveling companion for the two days in Istanbul. Very passionate about her city, its culture and its ways of life, it was a pleasure to see Istanbul through her eyes. She is very friendly - my 12 yr old daughter just loved her. Though the weather was a spoiler, but Safiye made it a memorable trip. Glad we booked our tour with her! Definitely visiting Istanbul again, hopefully soon

Split the two days between the two continents by a day of rest. She was very accommodating to do this and it worked out well. It gave us time to appreciate the city of Istanbul and all it's highlights. If we come back again we would hire her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear William, Thank you very much for your nice comment. It was my pleasure to be your guide. You are always welcome to my beautiful country.
