Haktan gave us an excellent tour; knowledgeable, interesting and fun he brought the tour to life, taking us back to the days of the Ottoman Empire and Constantinople and showing us at least two places that many visitors wont find. We will be asking him to take us on more tours while we are in Istanbul and would absolutely recommend him to anyone who wants a fun, informative and culturally satisfying visit to the old city.

Excellent Day. Haktan, loves showing you around not just the expected places but the hidden spots too. He loves to talk and discuss almost anything you could think of under the Turkish sun. I would love to go for more walks lead by Haktan, once the pandemic days are behind us :-)
