Here one can really speak of a "private" tour; already in advance, the guide contacted us and asked for our wishes.

Tour with Mr. Mehmed was a direct hit! Is a very competent travel guide who has us in Istanbul a little off the beaten track The oriental food the oriental music the ottoman empire has seduced us and we are overwhelmed by the beautiful Istanbul that Mehmet presented to us and would definitely recommend a private travel guide for a short trip.

Snezana/Dragana/Marina/Danijela
great

our Istanbul tour with Mehmet was a first class experience. Missed history and religion lessons (Christianity and Islam) in school were comprehensibly and comprehensively taught within hours. Mehmet was also able to get involved with the individual interests and no prefabricated program was reeled off. At the next Istanbul visit surely the same leader again, then longer.

We had a very competent guide. Mehmet could not lead the tour for personal reasons. As Instanbul beginners we have learned a lot about the city and its history. In addition, we got very helpful hints where to do some excellent shopping

Mehmet had impressed us all very much! There are so many areas in which he knows his stuff: general history, architecture, religions, craftsmanship. He was able to adjust to the different people in our small group (10 yrs. - 82 yrs.) and thus satisfy the hunger for knowledge of the older ones, while at the same time maintaining the interest of the children. With his broad knowledge he could certainly have guided us through Istanbul for a whole week, time went by way too fast and - when we are back in Istanbul - we will definitely see if we can book a sequel with Mehmet. Many thanks for the great tour, after 10 days we all still talk about all the things Mehmet told us that day!

great

It was a very good, interesting and informative tour with Mehmet, which I can only recommend to everyone. Mehmet is an extremely competent, perfectly German-speaking guide with an indescribable high professional competence, great historical knowledge - combined with a pleasant, humorous and friendly manner. I have been able to benefit a lot from Mehmet's knowledge and would love to book a guided tour with him again at any time when I should come back to Istanbul. So Mehmet is absolutely worth his money and has earned at least 10 or more stars. Anyone who books a tour with him will certainly not regret it! Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for your uniquely good and outstanding leadership!

Good tour, we've seen a lot.

Here one can really speak of a "private" tour; already in advance, the guide contacted us and asked for our wishes. Everything was very well prepared, we felt absolutely safe and in good hands. Then we got some tips for our further stay in Istanbul. Since also friends have already reported positively about Rent-a-Guide, we would book a tour all over the world again. We particularly like the individual care of the private tour. It was great!
