First I would like to say thank you, guys! There was amazing experience for my husband and me. Another thank you, guys, for working on days-off after the holidays, though... More

We went on this tour with Gulay - it's supposedly a group tour, but as tourism is sadly not great, there were only us and another couple. The tour was interesting and we got a lot done including the blue mosque, Hagia Sofia, the Topkapi Palace, the Cistern as well as a ceramics and a carpet making demonstration and a... More

I booked my one day tour with neon travels and wow our tour guide Gylay made my day. She had good knowledge and very good English and great personality. She even gave tips on shopping and went out of her way to help us. I would definitely book my tour with neon again.

I have done many tours in the past and by far he is the best. He was both knowledgeable and pleasant by showing all sights such as blue mosque, cistern and grand bazaar. Thank you Hakan and Neon tours!

We had Gulay @ Neon Tours as our private tour guide for a 3-day Istanbul stay. She was great -- fun & knowledgeable! We had local insights & flavour besides the blockbuster tourist sights. Everything was seamless -- airport transfers, hotel, tours, dining out & shopping. Highly recommended!

We had a fantastic tour guide (Hakan Adagume) very knowledgable, friendly and helpful. An amazing way to see all the city has to offer in one day. Lunch was great and we highly recommend this tour.

We had a wonderful tour of old Istanbul with a very competent and knowledgeable guide, Gulay Gunay. It was a day well spent in visiting the Topkapi Palace and Museum, the Hagia Sophia Mosque and Museum and the old Roman Underground Water System. It included a delicious Turkish lunch and a visit to a rug sales shop. Our guide, Gulay... More

I wish to thank Neon Tours for a great 17 day tour around Turkey. In particular, I would like to thank my tour guider, Ugur Unal, for his discussions on the past and present history of Turkey during the tour and his patience in dealing with a demanding tourist. The drivers skill in manoeuvring through the narrow city streets was... More

This was an excellent introduction to Turkey and Greek islands. Our tour guide Ismail was so full of knowledge on the places we were visiting . it was a pleasure listening to him describing these beautiful places we visited. Our tour led onto a three day cruise of the Greek islands. My husband and I would certainly like to return... More

They are more than excellent. Highly recommend them for whatever adventure you wish to get into. Their cars are clean and comfortable, their drivers are excellent and show up on time. That's every time, no fail. The tour guides are knowledgeable, they have a program to follow and don't waste time with mistakes. Their pricing is reasonable but what really... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
