Wow, what a cool Experience. Oz was an absolute legend. This was a great way to see the city, but to also hear about the rich history that Istanbul has to offer. It blew me away hearing the cool stories. Oz is a great story teller as well. His knowledge is fantastic. I can definitely recommend Oz. He also does a food tour as well, so ask about that. A MUST DO! Choose Oz.

I booked a tour online but got no email, I went to the location anyway on the booked day; I found a Spanish speaking tour first and then walking around and found an English tour. Initially there was only two people there and within five minutes of me getting there, another twelve or so people turned up; in total we were over twenty people in the group.

We were told to sign a group sheet, several people (including myself) mentioned we gave the details online and the guide said you do not need to book online, just turn-up on the day.

Our tour did not cover some of the aspects of this tour but was the same length, started at the same time and was meeting at the same starting point.

Only after looking at the reviews and pictures online, it is became clear that other people in the past have done a walking tour with a different company and not just people in my walking tour group including myself. If your tour guide carried a red umbrella, it is not this tour and as the only two tour guides were carrying a red umbrella, where was this tour?

Dear

We sent our meeting point clearly to our guests.So far you are the only one who couldn't find our meeting point and joined to another tour.And it s very difficult for me to understand that you wrote such a review and gave us 2 stars.

This tour was an excellent way to explore Istanbul’s old city. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable, plus all of the locations were interesting and well explained.

Oguz is one super friendly, flexible and decent guide! He is simply incredible!
When it came to our “never ending” questions, he always answered with a smile while carefully making sure that we understood!
From touring the old town of Istanbul all the way to the new town, markets, fairies and remarkably rich historical landmarks and sites, he made sure to cover all the details/info all along the way! He even taught us tips n’ tricks on how to negotiate in Turkish when visiting markets! Now that was unique! :)))
Annnnd to add a final special touch to our tour, Oguz took us through the charming little streets and hidden alleys of Istanbul, to a 300 years old tea house that was still operational and that was aaaaaabsolutely magnificent! Then he took us to the finger licking unforgettably unique BAKLAVA #1 shop in town!
He certainly made our visit to Turkey pleasantly unforgettable and we totally recommend him as THE GUIDE you need to have!
