ONDER (guide) arrived in good time to meet me. I was the only one on this tour, which meant that I had a private tour. This tour was excellent, both in terms of content and because of Onder - he was highly knowledgeable, generous with his time, highly considerate, and enthusiastic in a low-key way. He showed me everything there was to see, and more, and went out of his way to make this a highly memorable experience in a variety of ways. Nothing was too much trouble for him, and it felt as though I was with a friend. I was particularly delighted about two things: (1) that we were able to enter the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate, and (2) that we had an iconic dish (balik ekmek) that was on my personal wish list, but I had the pleasure of having it with Onder. Excellent tour, excellent compassionate, knowledgeable guide. Special.
The tour was extremely well organized. The local guide met us as arranged at our hotel and we took it from there. We suggested we didn’t want to use public transport and he was happy with our suggestion. The tour was a bit customized in accordance with our expectations. We were super happy with everything and hope to be using the same company for guided tour next time we are in Istanbul.
Osgur our guide was fantastic. He was very well informed not only on where we visited but on any other advice/ help we needed - on Istanbul! We had our 9 year old son with us, and even he was interested! Osgur really brought the history alive for us. If you’ve not been to Istanbul before and have limited time- this really is the way to do it, much less queuing and no hassles. Thank you!
We went around Istanbul with our Guide Emre who we recommend. He was very knowledgeable and answered our questions wherever we went.
Emre was an exceptional guide, we had fascinating conversations on the history of Istanbul.
