Really enjoyed our 2-day tour of Istanbul, our guide was provided by Guided Istanbul Tours. Cigdem was super organised and practical. Scheduling the tour with good timing and creative tactics to ensure we avoided the queues and paced the tour to our preferences to ensure we saw what we wanted to see. With great calm, excellent English and a good sense of humour Cigdem made the tour interesting, informative and enjoyable.

We took the private tour for two days and we are very pleased with the program that showed us the most important places in Istanbul. Our guide (Cisem) did an excellent job and speaks Spanish very well. We are very happy with our experience in Istanbul and I definitely recommend taking the private tour with this company (Guided Istambul Tours) and especially with Cisem (our guide).

Saw a great deal of Istanbul in just 3 days with a tour guide who seemed like an old friend and took care of us like family. Selcuk took us to places that tourist and non tourists would visit. We had great dining experiences off the beaten path. We probably did more and saw more than a tourist on a regular group tour.
