Me and my mom had a great tour with Önder. His English is perfect, he is very knowledgeable and explains things in detail while also putting then into the context. We took the tour after 4 days in Istanbul and after the tour, we see the city and its history in the full and bigger picture. Higly recommended! Thank you, Ölder!

Our guide speaks perfect English. He is very knowledgeable in telling us the history of all the places we visited. He even walked the extra miles in accompanying us to the tram stops which we need to get on after the walking tour. He also offered us good shopping tips in Istanbul. A very memorable time indeed.
