Our guide was knowledgeable and nice, he took us to most of the highlights in Istanbul.
We were picked up in a large minivan just for us two.
The Turkish Rug store our guide took us to was legit.
The place we had lunch at had a nice view but the food wasn't the best.
I would recommend this tour, you can't go wrong.

A wonderful way to see the city and get to know the local customs. A great guide that knew his history but was able to judge when you had had enough. He gave us a lot of useful information that helped enhance the rest of our stay.

Recently visited Istanbul and had most amazing experience. Our tour guide 'Sevilay' was brilliant. Informative and full of knowledge. She made the whole experience memorable. This private tour was perfect for first time visiting the city. We managed to see all important historical sites in just a few hours. Highly recommend this tour for visitors regardless of how many times you have been.

Tour was amazing, guide Sevilah Tokmak was friendly, and expert of Istanbul history. Whole tour was in relaxed atmosphere. Only one recommendation, skip shopping marketing, if not requested so, upfront. Visit of hyper expensive carpet store was not necessary.

Our guide Tibet, was absolutely outstanding. She was extremely knowledgeable about each of the sites and knew so much about the history of Istanbul. She was charming, and by the end of the day we felt we had a new friend. My husband and I highly recommend this tour and our guide. We were picked up right on time at our hotel and had a marvelous day.

Would have given it 5 stars except very angry at the 'cultural' stop at rug sellers where we were aggressively strong armed to buy rugs. Guide basically sat back and let the shake down unfold. Left very bad impression after what would have been a perfect tour.

What a great way to see this fabulous city. You definitely need more than one day. Our tour guide, Omer Boran, from Neon Travel was fabulous. A seasoned guide you adjusted the day to get you ahead of the cruise ship tours. He was very knowledgeable, very articulate, and gave us time to see the artifacts at our own pace. Would definitely recommend this tour and guide.
