We loved the Istanbul night tour. Omer was an amazing guide and gave us so much information about the city and tips to get around. Omer took us to a cafe with the best view of Bosphorus. Walk along the bridge was spectacular as Istanbul was all lit up. Walk along taksim and the best baklava in Istanbul was a cherry on the top. Best part was meeting Omer and experiencing the amazing Turkish hospitality.

Omer was one of the best guides I ever had. He is very fun, he knows everything you can’t think of about his city and his country and he made this tour very dynamic for us. He would definitely go on this tour again. We can not recommend it enough. Thank you so much for everything Omer.

This is my first time using Guruwalk and Omer was absolutely brilliant! He is very kind and funny, and knows a lot about his beautiful city. We saw some historic sites, went to a rooftop cafe for a drink, and he took some great pictures for me! We ended the evening at a restaurant on the Bosporus which was superb. Omer was even kind enough to recommend a good place to buy gifts at good prices and also a good hamam. Thank you Omer for a great time, you have made my trip to Istanbul!
