Aykut was the perfect guide for our 5-hour-layover in Istanbul. Everything worked out great, from the pick-up at the airport to the authentic dinner place (even our picky eaters were thrilled) and the walking tour around the old town. We can absolutely recommend Aykut's tour!
We had the best time on our Istanbul tour with Aykut! He is a very pleasant person and a knowledgeable guide. He showed us all the important sights, we had a nice break having a meal at a local kebab stand and a tea with baklava in a nice cafe. We crossed the Bosporus as well. The tour gave us a great overview of the city and we feel like we now have a friend in Istanbul! You can't go wrong by booking with him.

Aykut was an amazing tour guide and I am so glad we booked him. He is extremely knowledgeable about the city and made our short time in Istanbul something to remember. He is so nice and welcoming and we are sure to come back and book him again for our next trip.

I had an 8 hour layover in Istanbul and decided to hire a guide to see some of the city. Aykut was an amazing guide. We managed to see the main tourist attractions and the Grand Bazaar. He took me to an amazing leather store where I purchased a fabulous jacket and then to a few other shops as well. He is extremely knowledgeable about the city and he also took me to a carpet cooperative, that I would absolutely go back to if I had more time to look at carpet. Aykut is one of my favorite guides!
