My son and I took this tour July 17th but only completed one half the tour. The tour included lunch. The restaurant we ate initially served me food that had a hair in it so sent the plate back. When they served the main dish which was chicken, I did not notice until I had eaten the half the chicken... More

I highly recommend Byzas Tours as they made our Cappadoccia trip hassle-free. From the hotel and airport transfers to the tour guide and the tour itself are worth every penny.

I selected this company as they showed considerable flexibility in organising a "custom" one day trip. All administration was by email and the car was waiting at the hotel as planned. It is a very long day trip, the better part of 350km each way, and while the driver's English was limited, he made up by driving us there safely!... More

We used Byzas for a two day tour to Capadocchia. Starting from the initial email exchange to get info on the various tour options, every step of the administrative process was very professionally handled. Our 5 am pick-up to the airport on the morning of the tour was prompt and set the stage for a smooth, well organised tour. Our... More

Everything went smoothly and the local guides were all very good, as were the drivers and vehicles provided. We were pleased with all the hotels (chose top ones). Byzas is very responsive to queries. It's all done by email which... More

I found this company via Internet search engine and m very satisfied. During booking they responded by emails very quickly. All was perfect, from an administrative point of view (booking, payment, modification to original tour, etc.) and also during the tour. No issues at all, pick up and transfers were on time. Never had to call them. They offer a... More

Byzas Tours and Zoe Yacht are a company I highly recommend when travelling to Turkey. From answering all our questions before we booked, tailoring a package to suit our needs and being extremely prompt with their responses, this is one of the most professional companies we have used. When our journey had several changes due to snowfall and cancelled flights,... More

Staying in Sisli

Neighbourhood Profile
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
