It has been an incredible experience in a vibrant city. We loved the historical and vibe, and all the insightful comments. special thanks for the fantastic atmosphere created during the tour. Thank you Metin for all

It was totally different tour compare with tours i joined before. It is going out of the way and they take you off the beaten paths of Istanbul. It is totally different than classic Istanbul tour. Hidden beauties of Istanbul and street foods amazed us. We had 4 different tastings and Turkish breakfast, lunch, dinner. And afterwards, Turkish bath (hamam) was the most interesting part of the tour. Scrubbing and foam massage was really amazing. Especially after long walk. Tour guide Metin was a star, he was fun, accomodating and informative

Wow! This tour was amazing! I can’t recommend it enough! It’s 12 hours long and every minute is made the most of! I would actually do it all over again if I had the chance. You are taken away from the main tourist spots, so you have a chance to experience the REAL Istanbul, which is incredible! If you are looking to get some good photos, there’s lots of scenic and unique spots on this tour. The tour guide Metin is friendly, charismatic, and fun. He gave useful insights into the history, culture and religion of every area we visited. Great for foodies, all three meals are included plus tasty little snacks along the way. All the food is delicious and gives you a real taste of Turkey. I’ve had hammam before but only in hotels and spas, this one was such an authentic experience in a 500 year old Turkish bath house! I did the circle tour on my 5th day in Istanbul, the tour guide gave me so many hints and tips on where to eat and what to do, I wish I had done it on my 2nd day here. Some tips - - Wear comfortable shoes for walking - Bring a bikini or bathing shorts for the hammam (I was so grateful that I had also taken a hairbrush!) - Don’t bother eating before you start the tour, there’s SO much to eat throughout the day! - Fully charge your phone/camera maybe even take a power bank, it’s 12 hours and you want to be able to take pictures the whole time!

Amazing. I wouldn't go back to Istanbul without calling Metin Yulmaz. We had an incredible time. Metin is a pro and loves what he does. You could tell the way that 100 people throughout the day greeted him that he cares about this city and the people here. Felt right at home and safe the entire time. Happy to call him a friend and someone I will see again in the future.

Circle Istanbul Tour was one of the best daily walking tour i've joined so far. We got to see hidden gems of Istanbul as much as major tourist spots. Highly reccomended
