We had very short time in Istanbul, this tour was perfect for us, we were picked up from our hotel on time, our guide Mev was so flexible in scheduling. She helped us see most sights of old Istanbul in half a day, and explained to us all the history around it, also she guided us to some good priced shops :) She also arranged for us transportation back to hotel. Totally recommend especially if you have short time in Istanbul and don’t want to be attached to a bigger group with a fixed schedule.

Very satisfied with the professionalism of Nurten, our guide in Istanbul, who has known in an excellent way to let us know a lot about the culture, history and monuments of that great city. Much more than we expected to achieve in just a few hours. Thank you and we hope to have her on future occasions

It is always rare to stumble on someone as passionate, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful! We were treated like old friends from the very first moment she picked us up(after waiting happily for over an hour for us). She was an encyclopedia of history knowledge and had an interesting fact about anything you could want to know. There is absolutely no better person to spend a day with and we feel like we left with new family that we missed as soon as we left.
