We were not "guided" as tourists but also got an insight into the real life of the city.

A lot of knowledge may mean a lot with a city guide/guest guide/tour guide. But even more important than knowledge is the gift of passing on knowledge to one's guests.

Full of expectation we met with our guide "Mehmet" for the full day guided tour to the historical centre of Istanbul, which we booked via rent-a-guide "Mehmet" gave us one or two tips for our common "journey".

I can only recommend the tour guide Mehmet to anyone. He explicitly responds to the wishes of tourists and answers all questions at any time. The guide is very nice. It is also a good idea for the tour guide to design the programme in a personal way, as the tourists, who have never been associated with the Turkish natives before, get a different view of the people of Turkish descent.

Of course, the tourists may also bring their own concerns into the city tour. The great thing about the guided tour is that you don't get lost in Istanbul, because Istanbul is constantly growing and now has up to 18 million people.

By the way: Even if many tourists are of the opinion that one can explore Istanbul on one's own, I would advise against it and give the tourists the tour guide Mehmet to the hand. On the one hand, there are a lot of open questions on the part of tourists from my point of view and on the other hand, one gets a lot of information from the tour guide that one did not know as a tourist before.

It was a really nice day. Very nice and competent leadership. Only to be recommended to get a first overview. More is not possible in such a big metropolis with so many sightseeings. The guided tour was individually designed according to our wishes and carried out very flexibly

Mehmet was an excellent guide through Istanbul. He has excellent knowledge of the historical sights and what was even more impressive for me was that he also told a lot about life in Turkey and Islam. A trip to Istanbul without a personal guide is not even half worth. I can only warmly recommend Mehmet. Many thanks for the unforgettable hours in Istanbul!

great

We were not "guided" as tourists but also got an insight into the real life of the city. Since it was agreed in advance what one would like to visit, the whole thing was also perfectly timed Mr. Faruk has a pleasant way of communicating facts and knowledge without it being too overloaded or intrusive. We really enjoyed the time.

Thank you very much !

A lot of knowledge may mean a lot with a city guide/guest guide/tour guide. But even more important than knowledge is the gift of passing on knowledge to one's guests. We at Mehmet appreciate that. With much wisdom, patience and harmony Mehmet YAGCI guided us through Istanbul and shared his knowledge with us We have experienced that he did not somehow unwind something, but very precisely responded to our questions. It was an unforgettable day for us. We know we're definitely coming back We now also know that we need to bring more time with us Next time do a 2-3 day city tour with you. Dear Mehmet, thank you very much for the first taste we had with you. We take up Istanbul and Turkey with a completely different understanding. Thanks to your wisdom and passionate way of leading. All the best for you and your inquisitive guests!

Full of expectation we met with our guide "Mehmet" for the full day guided tour to the historical centre of Istanbul, which we booked via rent-a-guide "Mehmet" gave us one or two tips for our common "journey". So we saw one or two peculiarities that we would not have noticed alone. Thank you very much Mehmet, we wish you continued satisfied guests and all the best. Greetings from Germany

Your experience

Description

After the booking, we arrange the meeting point - which can be the airport, the cruise harbour, your hotel or any point of interest in the city.

The tour starts in the old town, then we go to the Asian side of the city and as a closure, we see the Golden Horn.

This programme is just a suggestion and can always be changed to your needs!

But it surely is a great start for your stay in Istanbul. With all the sights and viewing points, it is a great way to get a first overview.

We will start in the morning around 9am and will start with the following sights:
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Yerebatan Sarnici, Hippodrome Square (Sultan Ahmet Square) with its monuments and the Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmet Mosque).

I would now like to take lunch (not included) at the Çamlica Hill in an Ottoman café and restaurant. Of course, you will also be able to drink Çay.

We then go to the Asian side of the city (transport not included).

Our tour continues to the district Eyüb which is named after the legendary flag carrier of the prophet Muhammed Ebu Eyyûb el-Ensar.

We visit the Eyüp Sultan Mosque and go to the terrific viewing point of the Piere Loti café by cable car.

On this tour, you will not only see the monuments of Istanbul, but also experience the cosiness of the locals.
