Canan (Pronounced as Janan) was a great guide, showed us all main tourist spot near Sultanhamet and then showed us the Grand Bazar. We think we couldn't have asked for anything better than this. A big thumbs up for you guys to arrange such a tour.

Our guide Selcyk was very knowledgeable. The whole tour was enjoyable. There was lot of walking involved but Selcyk made sure everyone had frequent rest and breaks. We went along with kids and loved every minute of the tour. Majestic buildings, beautiful architecture and to top it all - our guide.
Thank you!

The tour was outstanding we visited most of the historic sites in one day when we were short of time.Oyr guide was very knowledgeable.
Lunch was excellent. Traditional Turkish in a good restaurant.
My only note of caution would be that it is a long day with a lot of walking so you need a reasonable level of fitness. However a wonderful day.

The tour was good and Atilla the tour guide was informative as well as descriptive throughout the tour without missing any informations. It allows me to fully understand the history of the museums and Istabul as a whole. The team was also providing a fast response with regards to hotel pickups and more. Totally worth the time and will recommend this to my other friends/families.
