The private tour exceeded our expectations. Thank you Furkan for meeting us at our hotel and escorting us to the old city. The walking tour included the major sights in the Sultanahmet district. Furkan was extremely knowledgeable and professional. We were guided efficiently through the many crowds with time taken to answer our many questions. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to learn more about Istanbul's history, Turkish culture and insights into living in Turkey from a local guide which is difficult to experience in a larger group! Tours can be personalized to meet your wants and needs. Thank you Furkan!
