An amazing one day tour in Istanbul ! We only had about five hours in Istanbul on a layover but Cem made sure we made the most of it. He took us to the sites we wanted to see - allowing us to skip the ones we did not want to. Had a fabulous lunch… And we brought home some authentic Turkish items. We truly felt immersed in the Turkish culture even though it was such a short time we were there. I highly recommend Cem! Do not hesitate to book. He is kind and knowledgeable. We felt completely safe!

Cem was punctual, personable, and very accommodating to our time frame and what we wanted to do. His English skills are excellent. His knowledge of local history and facts about the sites we visited was excellent. While only several hours with him, we felt like we were with a local friend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ronald, Thank you very much for your kind review about me. It was a big pleasure for me to know you and I am proud of being your local friend in Turkey. Warmest regards, Cem

Cem was a fun, informative guide. Our favorite part was an authentic Ottoman lunch and sampling Turkish Delight at the Grand Bazaar. We appreciated his willingness to speak candidly about the challenges facing his country. We recommend him highly.
