Emre is a fantastic and very interesting guide. He picked us up at our hotel in time and described the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia without any stress for the two of us. We were informed about the history and the present in a very skilful way. After Hagia Sofia we walked together to the Roman Cistern and he explained all the magic in it. After the lunch we walked to the Grand Bazaar and strolled there for a while. Really a great and interesting tour which we gladly recommend to everyone visiting the great city of Istanbul. Thank you, Emre !

Istanbul an amazing city
Hi All. This was an amazing tour. Emre met us at our hotel in time, took us to all the important sites. He is very knowledgeable and filled us in on details that we would otherwise not have known. He made touring with our little one very comfortable. Recommendations for lunch/ snacks in between were brilliant and also small things such as taking some amazing pictures of us.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and I would highly recommend anyone to use him as a guide.
