    The Istanbul leg of the trip was spot on. Incredibly knowledgeable and fun local tour guide. One guide to a couple ๐Ÿ™‚ Today no following a flag around in a large gaggle. That was very good. All the transfer services to airport and flights went like clockwork for the second half in central Turkey.

    Fantastic day in Istambul… I am sure there are many but we had the chance to have Guzidee as our tour guide for one day during our stay. We visited the most important sites in Istanbul with her and she made our day very special. She is very friendly, professional and the best guide for us. we would really recommend her and her travel company if you want to have a wonderful day in Istambul.

    Our guide Mr. Coskun was a sweetheart! I was traveling with my parents and the guide was very attentive to them, which made it an easy and memorable tour. He also definitely knows a lot about the mythic city and told us a great deal about Istanbul while we were on the boat between Europe & Asia continents. This is a perfect travel company. We recommend that who likes to travel to Istanbul and Turkey. Excellent experience and excellent service!

    Our trip was a perfect combination of time to explore on our own and expert guides. Starting from Europe and continue to Asia was unique experience. The guides in Istanbul deserve special recognition recognition as well. Unfortunately, i don’t have their names. They responded with great knowledge to all of our questions and tailored the Istanbul tour to our interests. I look forward to the weekend and the Bosphorus cruise we will make ๐Ÿ™‚

    This program is one of the best tour in Istanbul if you have short time frame. We have been 3 days in Istanbul. It was very nice to enjoy with boat trip and visit Asia continent. Camlica Hill has a very good view. Beylerbeyi Palace Museum was amazing. I hope to come back to Istanbul again.
