Gulay was the best tour guide we had on our vacation. She was very knowledgeable about the history, culture and architecture of the sites we saw. Her appreciation for her subject matter was infectious. Her assistance with haggling at the bazaar saved us . A must do tour.

We had a wonderful tour guide in Gissam?. She was extremely knowledgeable history major who was enthusiastic and loved the job she was doing which showed. Right from when she picked us up at the cruise terminal, she was giving us historical perspective and details of the sites she took us to. She was very friendly, helpful and cheerful person. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Istanbul.

Hulya was very knowledgeable about her beautiful, exciting city. She knew the best times to arrive at each site to avoid the crowds. She went at our pace without hurrying us. When I expressed an interest in a certain type of souvenir, she took us right to the best shop in town for what I wanted. We really enjoyed our full day with her.
