Our tour guide is very experienced, great knowledge of the history of the city. Flexible and easy going. We were a large group and she was always looking out for us, and always on time. We visited every place that was expected and then some local cuisine restaurants to let us have a deep experience of their culture. She was fluent in Spanish,

Just Superb! Our family spent 3 days in Istanbul with our guide Hakan. He was amazing! Not only was his knowledge excellent, but he shared so much of his culture too. He took us to off the beaten path restaurants and experiences. His English is excellent and by the second day he felt like family. We always had a plan for each day, but he would also customize it based on our interests. We highly recommend this agency. Hakan truly made our experience in Istanbul the trip of a lifetime.
