Great guide, great experience!
, Sep 2021
Our guide, Abdullah "Apple", was fantastic. Educated in history, art and architecture, his knowledge base added great depth to our introduction to Istanbul. Though some sites were not available due to restoration, he substituted interesting places to make up for it. He was in no rush, returning us to our hotel some 3 hours later than the originally expected time. He gave great restaurant recommendations (try Sarnic, in a 1,500 yo converted water cistern), and took us to back alley tea spots off the tourist beaten path. My only complaint is that the Harem of the Topaki Palace is not included in the tour, and this was not made very clear. When I figured it out I merely had to mention it to our guide that it was a must see, and he added it happily, but of course I had to purchase the separate admission tickets. I strongly recommend this tour, and ask for Abdullah for sure!
Flexible, helpful , and family friendly.

The tour was amazing. Our guide Emre was very friendly and had extensive knowledge of all the places we visited. I highly recommend him. The Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia are a must see when in Istanbul.

We decided on taking the full day, 8 hour tour and we were very glad that we did. It was a wonderful day filled with so many of the sites in the old Istanbul area. It wouldn't have been nearly as fun and interesting without our tour guide Yunun. He made the experience very special. His wealth of knowledge of the sites as well as the past history and current events of his subject matter were impressive. Even though we covered a lot of ground with few rest stops, our choice, he was patient, interesting, accommodating, genuine and relaxed the entire day. We have family planning a visit to Istanbul as well as a return visit ourselves and will definitely be requesting Yunun for any tours we plan to take. Thank you Yunun, you are a treasure!!!
