Touring with Hanifi was like visiting an old friend who knew everything about his surroundings. In addition to learning so much about the incredible sites in Istanbul, we shared philosophy on everything from politics and religion (normally dangerous territory) to family life. And we shared lots of laughs. I highly recommend Hanifi to anyone who wants to take their tour to a different level.

We experienced the 2 day Istanbul tour with Hanifi. It was me and my 2 daughters and all I can say is that Hanifi, made this tour , so enjoyable. My daughters enjoyed listening to Hanifi speak about the deep rooted history of Istanbul about the Ottomen empire. Now my daughters normally could care less. But Hanifi is masterful in teaching. He mixed the right blend of knowledge, humor and keeping it in the now. He took his time , and we experinced so much in the day and half. Amazing tour , amazing Guide

Hanifi is a great tour guide. Istanbul is an incredible city and Hanifi makes the city come alive. We had a typical Turkish lunch, which we loved and mingled with the local people. The Grand Bazaar and Spice Market were really amazing to see and Hanifi was able to guide us through these markets quite easily. I look forward to returning to Istanbul one day, with Hanifi as our guide. Ricki and Friends
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: :) thanks Ricki, for your great words.

Hanifi is absolutely the best guide ever! We spent 1 1/2 days together and he showed us the very best part of Istanbul. We had a group of 6 and moved through the long lines quickly with his contacts and directness. He not only showed us through the Blue Mosque but explained all about the Islamic religion. His sparkling eyes and loving disposition made us want to tour all of Turkey with him. We are going to pass his name on to everyone that travels to Istanbul! Thank you...Hanifi
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comment. Here is some lovely words for you from a poet. “Forget safety. Live where you fear to live. Destroy your reputation. Be notorious.” ― Rumi

Incredible three days. Hanifi was exceptional. He did everything we asked and more. He was on time, arranged great weather, and we visited all the great sites in Istanbul. I would recommend him for anyone who wants a great time in Istanbul.
