This tour was great! Neslihan was an amazing tour guide and took me not only to the major sights, but some out-of-the-way places. Her knowledge of Turkish history is impressive and she was able to answer even the most detailed question. If I find myself back in Istanbul again, I would absolutely take another tour with her. I highly recommend this tour!

What an amazing food tour!!! We tasted authentic Turkish food in non-tourist places combined with historical facts and information about the everyday life in Turkey. The food was delicious! Neslihan is the best guide that we had on our vacation. She is kind, funny, educated, and always by our side to explain to us anything that we want and satisfy our needs. We all loved her! There is no question that if you want the best food tour in Istanbul you should hire Neslihan! Highly recommended!!!

We learned about the history and tradition of this country in the best way that we could! Neslihan is kind, funny, educated, enthusiastic, answered all of our questions and she took care of us. We skipped the line in any monument, we did stops for resting. The tour was so amazing and enjoyable! The fact that she is local was an advantage because she knew anything that we asked from her, like the best shopping and food. If you want to live Instabul and not to be a tourist, there is only one way! Neslihan!

Neslihan is a wonderful and incredibly knowledgable tour guide. She lead my wife Boo and I on a fun and informative tour of the main historical sites and other lesser know gems in Istanbul. We had a great time with her and enjoyed her company and insights very much. This tour was strengthened by Neslihan's personal insights and

Well at first I did not want everyone to know how good she is but then that would not be the right thing to do, Neslihan is a marvelous guide, she is on time, practical, great sense of humor, knowledgeable and personable. We love her! You didn't hear me right?

Neslihan was a wonderful guide. We spent an entire day with her. She showed us all over the city and gave us a great mix of history, insight into culture, a chance to taste local food and drinks, and lots of delightful conversation. We walked, and used taxis, a bus, the funicular and the tram, so we know how all of those work now. She gave us great advice on restaurants and things to do. She's smart, funny and energetic. Her English is great. We'd certainly use her again, and recommend her highly!

It is hard to exceed our high expectations of Tours By Locals. We have had great guides in the past. However, our most recent experience in Istanbul was beyond excellent. Spending three days with Neslihan was like getting reconnected with an old friend. She has a fantastic, fun personality which made her a joy to be around. The only drawback was the three days spent with her went by way too fast. Neslihan, you deserve AT LEAST ten stars!

Neslihan is the best guide we have ever had the pleasure of guiding us! She not only showed the highlights of Istanbul but she also gave us the history, a glimpse of everyday life and the best coffee we've ever had. She is knowledgeable, approachable and fun! We would recommend her tour to anyone visiting Istanbul. It was well worth the time and money! This recommendation is coming from a well travelled couple and Neslihan is truly one of the best!

Neslihan's charisma, in-depth historical knowledge and flexible itinerary, made for an enjoyable tour. She also taught us how to use the Istanbul tram network which opened up the whole city to us. Normally tour guides are rip offs, boring and stick to fixed itineraries but Neslihan is an exception, I would strongly recommend.

Neslihan was a great guide and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The commentary was fun as well as informative. We visited several historic places and bazars and I learned a lot of fun facts about them through Neslihan's descriptive, detailed and at times humorous explanations. We ended up visiting many more places than the original itinerary. We also had a chance to taste local food and pastry which I would have never found on my own. I definitely recommend Neslihan as your tour guide.

Neslihan is a wonderful tour guide who showed us all the major sites of Istanbul. She has a wealth of knowledgeable about the locations and allowed us the right amount of time at each location. She provided interesting facts as we strolled from one area to the next. Recommended sites to see during our remaining time. Wish we could take her with us everyday we are here. She is very personable and I highly recommend her!

We had an amazing experience with Neslihan as she walked us through the wonders of old Istanbul and its endless sights. Highly informative and we had lots of fun too, like we were meeting an old friend. A very warm and kind individual with a great sense of humour. A 5 star tour without question. Will refer to friends and family back home in Ireland and hopefully you will book with her too! ��

From New Zealand we spent 2 days with Neslihan in Istanbul. Very informative & relaxing manner. We felt very safe and Neslihan provided a very knowledgeable, personnel touch. Highly recommended. We organized our trip with Neslihan 2 months before leaving by email. The 2 days with Neslihan was a highlight of our 7 week vacation. Tours by Locals is the way to go easy to book and communicate with, and with guides like Neslihan are the best. Thank you very much Neslihan
