Aykut was a friendly and engaging guide to Istanbul during the two days we engaged him in mid-August 2017. He knew Turkish history inside and out, and knew his city just as well. His English is superb. When we expressed interest in purchasing one sort of souvenir or another, he took us to places where we wouldn't pay 'tourist prices.' I highly recommend him.
Aykut gave four of us an outstanding day in Istanbul. He was friendly, flexible and very knowledgeable and it was a pleasure to spend the day with him. Our tour was tailored to suit the places we wanted to see together with places that were his suggestions - all were very good. A great experience. Aykut is truly excellent and we could not recommend him more highly.

Aykut was phenomenal! Not only did we get to see all the monumental sites of Istanbul, Aykut also took us for a truly unique and decadent experience - the Turkish baths. Wow! We will remember our time in Istanbul forever. I can't send enough praises his way...

We recently had four couples go on a tour of Istanbul with Aykut. We were extremely happy with our choice. He arrived on time with a driver and large A/C van. We had an "open" itinerary and counted on Aykut on hitting the high points of the city. He already had the tickets for us to all the places that required them, allowing us to get right in. He was VERY knowledgeable, professional and most importantly passionate about his great city. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who wants to enjoy this great city.

I was pleased with the flexibility of Aykut to address the sites I wanted to visit as well as wine tasting. His incredible knowledge, paired with his outgoing personality, made the day fly by. It had been 25 years since my last visit to Istanbul. Aykut not only supported my trip down Memory Lane, but provided all the history of the changes to the areas we visited. I will definitely use the group again. I would highly recommend Aykut to anyone visiting Istanbul. He was a real pleasure!

Aykut was a great guide for our group! He picked us up from the Port and quickly got us to the center of Istanbul. We were able to avoid the lines and see everything and also enjoyed an authentic Turkish lunch at a beautiful restaurant. The Grand Market was fun too. Aykut was able to get us back to the ship on time even when traffic was horrible. He is a very professional guide who takes you where you want to go. Thanks from the Hubert's and the Harris's!

We recently did a custom tour with transportation with Aykut. He was fast to answer all questions prior to booking which made me comfortable. Aykut is a highly intelligent young man with great knowledge of Istanbul. He was fun to be with and considerate of our needs. The day of our tour was an extremely busy day with millions of people swarming and a bike race closed the main roads. Aykut got us into the sites fast and adjusted the schedule to take care of us. We were very happy with his service.
I had very limited time to try to see the highlights of Istanbul. There is no other way that I could have seen as much in 4 hours, as I did on the tour with Aykut.
