Cengiz is a thoughtful and masterful storyteller. He provides a great overview of major Istanbul highlights peppering in humor and involving group tour members in discussion. Grateful for his help in navigating the bazaar when it came to ensuring prices were at actual market value. All tour details carefully planned. Communicative.

A really nice introduction to the old part of Istanbul! The tour is nicely paced and very informative - with some good stops for snacks and tea. Recommend this to start off your time in the city!

Cengiz was a knowledgeable, considerate guide. His English was amazing, as was his effort to cater to his clientele. He even walked me to the tram afterward, and helped me purchase a pass on the correct line to get me back to Beyoglu. Cengiz also never forced us to shop in specific stores!

A fabulous way to start a trip to Istanbul. Cengiz was an extremely knowledgeable tour guide. We learned so much about each of the sites on this tour. Despite going to some of the most popular tourist destinations in Istanbul, he made it feel personal and like we were seeing the real version of each site—not just the highlights. We had lovely stops at a charming coffee place and a hidden lunch counter in the Grand Bazaar. We were so glad to see parts of the Bazaar most visitors never see or find.
