Ayfer did an amazing job. She is very knowledgeable of history. The tour was amazing. We tasted and walked our way through Istanbul from Galata to SultanAhmet. Great job!

Flew into Istanbul very early and hit the ground running with Ayfer, having booked a private all day Istanbul city highlights tour. She was happy to accommodate our needs, walking old city and other asian sectors, with cultural and traditional stops and information. We achieved a comprehensive understanding of past and present day Istanbul, it's people and its evolution. Enjoyable non touristy refreshment and lunch stops. Ayfer had great English comprehension and knowledge on many subjects and was well versed in travel to other countries. Understood Aussie humour and made our day with Ayfer a true local experience. Well worth it so we could explore by public transport company on our own for a few days after !
Thanks Ayfer. Hope to see you in Oz next time you visit down under xxx

Ayfer was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, warm and gave us an amazing introduction to the city. Communication both before and after was brilliant and made things so easy. She also went above and beyond- booked a wonderful hamam for us and gave the most delicious recommendations for places to eat and where to go which made the rest of the trip so enjoyable and easy. She has great taste! We can't thank her enough and would really recommend that you book with her, her warmth, humour and knowledge of the city makes for a really special experience.

Hakan was a very professional guide and highly knowledgeable. We had planned to do a full day tour in the Old City but he made some great suggestions and was flexible to change plans. We saw the highlights of the Old City, trained to the Asia side to try different local restaurants, took a boat/funicular up to Taksim Square then finally returned to our flat in Galata. We checked out several of the recommendations he made during the rest of our time in Istanbul. All were great and we wouldn’t have found them on our own. Above all, Hakan was easy to get along with and a very pleasant guy. We had a great day and experienced so much more of what the city had to offer with his help. (August 2019 travel)

Our tour was done in April 2019. We did a customized tour with Hakan of both the old and new European sides of IstanbuI on our first full day in Turkey. It was a long day full of lots of walking, but it was a great day! We were able to see many popular historical sights, such as Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern and Topkapi Palace. We moved on to Taksim Square and Istiklal Street to see some popular areas. Hakan was patient with our excessive picture taking and caring for the 18 month old we were traveling with. Our trip to Turkey was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken!

We had a lovely morning with Diana, we went to some cute shops in Galata, tried all of Istanbul's transport systems, which was really helpful to us, and visited a really nice bazaar. Diana was really helpful and answered all our questions (we had a lot). We ened our tour by being dropped off at a lovely restaurant where we had lunch. Thank you Diana :-) We visited in March 2019.

This was my first time using Withlocals and I selected Alper in order to explore the nightlife of one of my favorite cities, Istanbul. Apart from showing me the off beat tracks, he also had the somewhat up-hill task of impressing me with Turkish cuisine, both tasks he performed exceptionally well. Being a reader of history, I usually discuss different topics which also was not a problem with Alper, who not only indulged in discussions but was also very keen on learning about different opinions and cultures. Overall, by the time our trip ended I had made a good friend in Istanbul. I can highly recommend Alper for anyone wanting to explore this beautiful city.

We spend the afternoon and the evening yesterday with Alper visiting Istanbul's Asian side, enjoying 2 of his tours back to back, using street art as a driver to our visits. Art is not only about beauty; it also enables anyone to learn about history, politics, geography, culture, architecture, etc. Alper explained what drove visual artists to create their art in the streets of the Eastern side of Istanbul as well as on a small part of the Western side at the foot of the Galata tower. It is really interesting to see the contemporary side of this city. There is much more to it than just the traditional areas on the European side, which is really interesting, but that can also be very touristic. After this tour with Alper, we have a much deeper understanding of Istanbul's very rich culture and dynamic atmosphere. The city's future is very visible on the Eastern side. As a guide, Alper is very organised, knowledgable and was very sensitive to our interests. In addition to visiting the streets and the coast, he took us inside cafes and restaurants to show us what he considers the best place for specific Turkish dishes, and also to make us feel the atmosphere of the city. We spent a very pleasant and rich day.
