If you only have a weekend in Istanbul…
Nov. 2021 • Friends
…this tour is a must. This was such a great tour, it really covered all the main sights Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi palace, bazaars and a sunset cruise. Everything was well planned and guests are very well looked after throughout with lunch and snacks on the boat. Our guide, Yunus, was amazing, very professional and knowledgeable with lots of good anecdotes to make the tour interesting. Strongly recommend!

Amazing trip
Perfect tour. Our tour guide Yunus was very knowledgeable, very kind and went out of his way to make it a memorable tour for us. The Bosphorus yacht ride was simply amazing. We had so much fun.

Perfect first day in Istanbul!
Nov. 2021
Excellent experience! We were first-time visitors in Istanbul looking for a full-day orientation to the city and got much more. Our guide, Yunus, provided a structured and educational tour with insights and folklore that only a local could provide. We were asked about our interests -- I'm into history, my wife is into present-day food+culture -- and Yunus made sure to interweave these topics whenever they intersected. Istanbul can be a bit overwhelming, so having a great lunch option, curated Grand Bazaar visit, and informative Bosphorus cruise included streamlined a packed itinerary where we were trying to hit all the most famous historic sites in one day. We did a fair amount of research online for our stay in Turkey, and starting off with this tour was our best decision. Highly recommended!

Perfect experience of Istanbul in one day!
The tour was about 10 hours including the visit of the mosques, palace, Grand bazar and lunch on a roof top of the restaurant viewing the sea and the mosque. Yunus, our tour guide, was warm energetic awesome guy who was very knowledgeable about the history of the different eras, the emperors, the wars, the mosques and so on.
In the end, the Bosphorus cruise was a luxury one. Beverages, nuts, fruits, Turkish tea (black tea) which was served in a Turkish style cups and the Baklava, the Turkish delight.
Yunus was guiding us in the cruise, once we were passing the palaces, bridges, mosques and monuments.
Over all the experience was a five star one! I recommend this tour to friends and family.

Lots of things to see and do!
We (me and my wife) were lucky enough to have Yunus only for ourself the whole day. It was like a private tour. Everything was planned carefully and even if it is a long day out, we enjoyed every minute of it! Yunus has very good knowledge of history, and he explains everything very nice. Food was very good, and the view from the restaurant is outstanding. On the boat trip they serve you with sweets, fruits, water, tea and everything you need. The whole journey you have lots of things to see!
Thank you for a great day out!

Yunus was our tour guide for the walking part! He is very passionate about history and really did a great job showing us around! We learned so much and had an awesome experience and would not have been able to have the same experience without Yunus!!! Then we went on the boat tour on the Bosporus strait and that too was awesome! Plenty of snacks! We loved the sunset! Had a great time!

Great experience
Yunis was an amazing tour guide. He was very knowledge of the beautiful city of Istanbul. He effortlessly passed this knowledge to us as we walked the city streets to admire all that it had to offer us. Thank you for making this trip a little bit more special.

I learned a true appreciation for Istanbul
Nov. 2021
I went from being simply curious to developing a genuine admiration and appreciation for Istanbul and its history. Yunis was an excellent and extremely knowledgable guide who took care of us until the very end. He even helped us get on the ferry to avoid traffic in order to get us back to our hotel on the Asian side.
