Our tourguide Ceren did a great job of helping us find cool spots in cool neighborhoods that we NEVER would have done on our own. Amazing time.

Great tour of the night life in Istanbul, with street food and best baklava from a place most popular among locals. Alper mixed touring historic sights with hip new places, and made some great suggestions for other attractions to explore. Great tour and excellent guide, thanks Alper!

Alper was amazing!!!! Super kind friendly and accommodating. As 3 female travels we felt at ease abs very well taken care off. He's knowledgeable, fun and very easy going... it was a great way to see Istanbul at night, try out the BEST fish wrap! And the most delicious Baklava in town. Alper definitely knows his stuff! I'm glad we meet him and created more travel memories.

Ceren is a very joyful and social person. We very much enjoyed her company. On the tour she showed us places that we would not have otherwise found by ourselves. She had very nice suggestions for every budget ( we tried them all and were very pleased ) and gave us great tips on where to go, what to visit and where to buy tickets from. We highly recommend her tour and would gladly book her again on our next visit to Istanbul.
