This tour was the best way to explore old town of Istanbul. I could listen about history of the main sightseeing point and get a lot of tour tip from the guide. The guide was very kind and did his best to help us to enjoy Istanbul. Highly recommended!

Our walking tour with Erol was excellent. If you come to Istanbul for the first time it is a great way to start getting acquainted with the city. Erol is a great guide, interesting and helpful, and with excellent English. We enjoyed our three hour long tour very much and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Istanbul.

Our experience with Erol walking around Istanbul started in a easy meeting point in the morning.
We been walking during three hours stopping at the city highlights and learning about them.
Erol did a really nice job he gave us a lot of information and it wasn’t at any moment boring or weary.
In my opinion it was a easy going, interesting and full of knowledge tour. The best tour I’ve ever walked.
I really recommend him!

Erol provided a great introduction for our time here in Istanbul. He was a knowledgeable guide who was able to provide a good level of information within the 3hours we had. He was happy to answer extra questions about both the city and his perspective.
