* A traveler said: "Extremely knowledgeable guide, full of detailed information you will hear nowhere else, especially as relates to the more modern history of Istanbul. I hadn’t read about any of the sites we were shown in any of the tourist guides, and would have completely missed this entire side of the city. I now leave the city feeling I have gotten a fairly comprehensive view of it considering the brevity of my stay. I never do guided tours, but I am extremely glad I did this one - worth every penny. Thank you so much for everything, especially your kindness, in sharing yourself and your experiences, n answering all our questions, and making sure we were taken care of throughout the tour."

Derya met us at our Airbnb and then started from Karakoy (new town) area with a nice Turkish breakfast, then we snacked along our way in the area while checking out a lot of secret places that only locals know. We took ferry to the Asian side to check out the markets and had a great lunch before heading back to our place. We also had them arrange our trip to Pamukkale. Very happy with everything 🤩👍"

* A traveler said: "Our guide, Abdullah "Apple", was fantastic. Educated in history, art and architecture, his knowledge base added great depth to our introduction to Istanbul. Though some sites were not available due to restoration, he substituted interesting places to make up for it. He was in no rush, returning us to our hotel some 3 hours later than the originally expected time. He gave great restaurant recommendations (try Sarnic, in a 1,500 yo converted water cistern), and took us to back alley tea spots off the tourist beaten path. My only complaint is that the Harem of the Topaki Palace is not included in the tour, and this was not made very clear. When I figured it out I merely had to mention it to our guide that it was a must see, and he added it happily, but of course I had to purchase the separate admission tickets. I strongly recommend this tour, and ask for Abdullah for sure!"
