    Thank you to guide Ugur for sharing Istanbul with us with wonderful narratives, humor, and heart. The guide made our first experience in Istanbul a lasting impression. We haven’t stopped talking about our new friends Erkan and Coskun and have taken away with us a broader view of Turkey, the beautiful people, and the life there in the past and the present. If you do one thing while in Istanbul, don’t hesitate to take a tour plan with these men… It’s the best in Istanbul! Thank you for treating us Californians with such kinship and streamline. That was a spectacular experience that we will recommend to all our friends.

    I have to say with peace of mind that it is the best tour I have attended in Turkey. It was deep history and informative tour. They picked me up from my hotel and dropped me back to my hotel at the end of the tour, which was very comfortable. Everything has been thought for the comfort of foreign guests. Thank you so much.

    This one was a spectacular tour in Istanbul with our big family. We bought a day tour which included shuttle pick-up from our hotel, an English speaking guide (Banu who was amazing!), walking tours of the Egyptian bazaar and summer palace of a Sultans, bus trip throughout the area, lunch at a pleasant local restaurant, and a boat trip of the Bosphorous between Europe and Asia continents. Many thanks.
