Very interesting tour with a friendly guide

Our guide gave us very interesting insights into the past and present of Istanbul. Everything worked out fine and all of our requests were fully implemented. We saw a lot that day and, thanks to the good organization, we could experience a lot more than in a larger group. Thank you again !!!

Great handling, 5-star!

The driver and the guide were there on time. Ayla, who was our guide, explained everything to us very precisely and made the tour a real highlight! We can only recommend the private tour!

As always, it was good with Get your Guide

In the short time that most crusaders only have, we have seen the essential things. Our tour guide always responded to our wishes and we were very satisfied.
