Selcuk was an extremely knowledgeable guide.

Selcuk took us to all of the sites that we had said that we wanted to visit. He was an expert in the historical facts of all of those sites and would definitely recommend him to others.

Tour hit all the highlights I wanted to see.

I did the one day tour. I would highly recommend it if you have a short time in Istanbul. My guide tailored the tour to include something extra that was recommended to me by me cutting short my Grand Bazaar visit. Tip - wear your walking shoes.

A great tour to visit all the major attractions

Our guide Caner was very knowledgeable and tailored the tour to our needs and interests. It was fantastic to have a fast pass service to visit the monuments, no need to stay in the long lines to enter. This is worth every penny.

A great day out, entertaining and enlightening!

Volkan was a great guide, very knowledgeable, passionate about the history of Turkey and Istanbul. We enjoyed talking to him about not just the history but the current situations and politics of the day. He was attentive but knew when to give us some time and was great at taking photos! He also added some local insights for us as we specifically asked for a few recommendations and they turned out great.
