My fiance and I met Rasim outside of Aya Sofia. In his company we were able to pass the long queues and quickly access the great, historical building. Rasim speaks very well English.

Friendly tour guide and interesting facts. Very transparent and flexible. He welcomes questions and has a very profound knowledge about history and backside stories. He is specialised on touring the Hagia Sophia, so you should definetly book him for this attraction as well.

We met Rasim at the Hagia Sophia and he took us right in. No waiting in line! Very fascinating information. He has a great sense of humor and is obviously very smart. Willing to talk about how history impacts the present political climate. When we saw him several days later at the Palace, he remembered us and stopped to say... More

Highly recommend Rasim as your Istanbul guide. Learnt a lot and seen a lot - perfect! In short notice he could pick me up at the hotel and in one night I got to see Asian side, new & old part of town, ferry cross Bosporros and dinner!

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.
