This guide not only profficient at talking about stuff, that he was supposed to say, but also about related interesting details even about nature or whatever.. And there wasnt signle question that he couldnt answer, no matter how challenging or stupid it was.

Oguzhan sent us a message with all the relevant information the day before. That was a very good preparation and on the day of the city tour it was very cool with him. The young man knows a lot about the history of Istanbul. He lives the history and the city. He is always friendly, even when the questions are numerous, and with his relaxed manner he manages to unite the group at eye level. We were only 10 people which was super convenient and it felt very private. Thank you, Oguzhan, for the cistern and co. :-)

I came across Oguzhan’s details on Tripadvisor where he has great reviews. I contacted him and booked him because his reviews were great and he personally was going to be our guide. It proved to be a great choice. He was easy to deal with pre arrival in terms of the arrangements and our day long tour of Istanbul with him was fantastic and we saw parts of the city that without him we simply would not have seen. He was great company, easy going and very knowledgeable. It was just a really great day, and my only regret is not staying longer in Istanbul and not booking him for more than 1 day!

If you’re looking for a one day tour of Istanbul, then this tour, on a scale of 5, is a 6! At $65, the tour is also a great deal. Oguzhan Ceylon is a professional tour guide. He speaks English so there is no language barrier to be concerned about. He is very knowledgeable about each of the stops on the tour. Lunch is part of the tour and is pleasant surprise. Our tour started at 9 AM and stayed with us through 6:30. When we encountered delays at some locations, he made adjustments so that we didn’t miss anything he committed to for the tour. Another highlight was when we visited the Roman cistern and the Oriental rug shop above it where we saw a weaver making a rug. Then the owner treated us to refreshments and educated us on the various rugs he offered. All in all, well worth your time and money. Bostonman7

If you are short in time, this tour is fantastic! Ozzie (our guide) was super knowledgeable, friendly and very organised. The sites we went to were all stunning and the included lunch was delicious.
