We enjoyed visiting Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and Spice Bazaar. Our tour guide Recep was friendly and knowledgeable. We had small group consisting of 3 people. Highly recommend for visiting Istanbul Sultanahmet District essentials in calm pace and friendly service.

The tour is excellent. The overall experience is very good starting by the confirmation process until the drop-off.

It covers the essential Istambul attractions. The guide Recip was very knowledgeable and friendly.
The transportation was comfortable and the driver is very efficient and helpful.

I totally recommend the tour as a great introduction to Istambul`s historical center.

Semih was incredible! He was so accommodating and knowledgeable and was also a great photographer. He knew all the best places to shop and allowed me to decide on what I wanted to prioritize. I appreciate all of his help and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone visiting Istanbul. Thanks Semih!

I had a great tour with Semih. He was incredibly knowledgeable, personable and intelligent. Due to the pandemic and low tourism, I had a private tour essentially. Semih catered the tour to what I wanted to see at my pace and I was able to see what I wanted. He met me at my hotel early which was near the sights and we ended with good food. Highly recommend Semih
