One great day in Istanbul

We purposely booked our flight so that we have one full day in Istanbul. I was not quite sure what to do until I luckily found this company on TripAdvisor. Communication with Latif was great, he responded right away and the booking process was seamless. We arrived in Istanbul at 7 AM, instructions to the meeting point was easy to follow and find. The private limo van was awesome and whisked us directly to our hotel in the old city. There, our guide, Mev met up with us right away. She was really awesome , very experienced and knowledgeable. We felt like we just met our long lost friend in Istanbul. We proceeded to have breakfast at a local bakery , then to visit to blue mosque, glanced at the long long long line of Hagia Sophia so we decided to skip it and do something else better with our time. We walked through the palace park then hop on the Bosphorus cruise tour . Off the boat, we went to the Spice market then lunch then on to more shopping at the Grand Bazaar before we said good bye to Mev. Per her recommendation, we went back to see Hagia Sophia at night when all the crowds are gone and just enjoyed all the lights at the square after dark. The next early morning the Limo van came to pick us on time at 5 AM to whisk us back to the airport. Overall we had an awesome experience in Istanbul, we were so glad we booked this tour which saved me so much headache of researching and booking things separately , hoping to be back again soon.

Highlight of my trip to Turkey! Value for money!

I loved Latif as our tour guide, he provided us with historical facts about Turkey and its food interlaced with personal anecdotes and a striking sense of humour :) Being a foodie myself, I appreciate the fact that we were able to visit both sides of Turkey and also enjoy impeccable food. The places Latif took us, we had the yummiest food in all of Turkey(we had already been there for 6 days and we did the food tour on our last day). My favourite part of the food tour was the authentic Turkish breakfast spread. I thoroughly recommend this food tour and Latif as your tour guide. I promise, you shall not regret!

Authentic turkish experience!

Latif is an amazing tour guide and understands authentic turkish food. His tour gave us a great introduction to turkish cuisine and some of Istanbul's neighborhoods. We loved every minute and appreciate the food and people do much more! Thanks Latif - we highly recommend your tours!

Taylan was the best! He knew his stuff and was so engaging. He definitely went way beyond just a tourist, surface presentation. And he loves the subject matter - I could feel his passion for the titles and patterns. The drivers and greeter were great as well. It was all flawless and exactly on time as well. I am very glad to have taken this tour. 10/10.
