The tour was excellent, and we made it to the Wednesday market in Fatih, the Mosques, city walls and one if the cisterns I’d never seen before. Oguzhan was local, provided a huge amount of local social and historical information that assisted in appreciating the various locals we visited. The length of the tour was perfect. Not only my guide, but the transport and value for money were outstanding.

Fabulous way to see a wonderful city and learn all about it. The company were very helpful and responsive with instructions and our guide Tariq was exceptional with his historical knowledge (and some tips for how to negotiate in the Bazaar!). Highly recommended

The guide, Tarik, was awesome. But Istanbul city center is a very crowded area and it’s rather difficult to drive the Segway around. The area covered by Segway trip is smaller than in other European cities.

With 2 boys aged 17/15 this was an great way to experience and explore the city!! Tarik was an extremely good guide and made learning to ride segway really easy and fun!!
