We booked our 1/2 day tour with Travelium through the Hilton Bosphorus. Our guide for the day was Gürcan who was very good. As it was low season and the tourism industry is a bit slow in Istanbul right now we were spoiled to have our guide all to ourselves. We spent the day touring the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia,... 更多
Sadly the tour guide ruined the tour . I was a solo passenger on a huge bus on a rainy day . Had they canceled it then I would not be reviewing it . The guide essentially was seriously not in the mood to cater to individual . He kept complaining about the bad weather and too much traffic which... 更多
Gurcan showed us an amazing time. He told us the history of the city, shared stories and discussed events. He took us to trusted merchants to help with buying souvenirs. We enjoyed him so much we booked another tour with him. We highly recommend Gurcan when visiting Istanbul.
We had a Gallipoli/Troy tour with Hakan and an Istanbul walking tour with Sevinc. Both were very knowledgeable about the places they took us. Sevinc, in particular, is a keen photographer so is very good at putting you in the right place to get great shots. Both guides' English is very good so, as non-Turkish speakers, we felt that we... 更多

I can't say enough great things about our guide Cenk. He did everything right! First, he knows the city and practically everyone in it, like the back of his hand. I found it very easy to communicate with him via email to iron out the details of our time in the city before we arrived. Once we met him, it... 更多
Our guide, Cenk Akbostanci, provided an excellent tour of the Old City for our family. We learned a great deal about Istanbul's history and culture that cannot be supplied by a travel book. More importantly, Cenk's humor and inside knowledge made the tour especially fun.
My wife and I spent two full, wonderful days on private tours through Istanbul with our excellent guide, Sevinc Kalik. You can organize your tour with her through Travelium, but be sure to ask for her specifically. She was very pleasant and friendly, efficient, and very willing to adjust our days to suit our mood and impulses. Her knowledge of... 更多
I used this company for two separate tours and was impressed with both guides! They really knew their history, and their love of their city is infectious! The company offers several different types of tours; half day, full day, cruise, city, combos. They are a local company, and give you all kinds of "extras" (places, food, etc.).
