Our private tour guide was Tibet. She was absolutely wonderful! She's very knowledgable about each location and made sure we saw what we liked. The included lunch was also great! We had traditional Turkish cuisine. I would highly recommend getting a private tour since you get to see a lot more and I highly recommend asking for Tibet. I couldn't have asked for a better tour guide!

We booked 2 private tours with you in Istanbul and are most satisfied - great guide from Neon. Would not hesitate one minute to use your services again. Pick up was on time and our guide helped us with other arrangements as well. Vehicles were very comfortable and clean. Good job!!

We were fortunate to have Onur as our guide and not have to wait in any lines as he already had all the necessary tickets for each attraction. He is very knowledgable and friendly and made each tvisit come alive. Highly recommended!

Really wonderful opportunity to treat my parents and myself to a private tour of Istanbul. We could go at our pace and tell the guide what we most wanted to see and how long we wanted to spend at each site. The guide was knowledgeable and engaging. The tour included a lunch and though I did not expect much, I was pleasantly surprised by the amount and quality of the food. Well organized and though a bit expensive, well worth every cent.

The guide was very informative and friendly. We were able to move at our own pace and even make some changes to the itinerary without issue. Would highly recommend this tour.

We booked a full day tour in Istanbul with our two teenagers. We were very pleased with the level of professionalism of our guide, Vulcan. He was clearly knowledgeable of the history of the city and his English was very good. We learned so much from him that otherwise we would not have experienced on our own or with a large group. The tour was very well organized and included a nice lunch with a view of Hagia Sophia. We casually mentioned that we'd like to have a lesson on the making of Turkish carpets and he immediately set up a visit to a reputable carpet wholesaler in the area and accompanied us. For our family, having a real expert on the history of the sites, one who truly loves his country and its culture, made the tour very enjoyable and memorable.

A must do! There's no way we could have appreciated the history of seeing these wonderful sights without this tour. Our guide gave us little details that probably could not be found in guide books.

This private tour of Instanbul was the best tour my husband and I have ever been on. Our tour guide, Hatice Dogan, was incredible. She was extremely knowledgeable on all subjects, accommodating, friendly - in fact, everything you could wish for in a guide. This was a tour of a lifetime.

Funda is absolutely the best (we called her 'Fabulous Funda'). She was ready for everything! We kept her hopping and she really delivered, showing us the most interesting and fun things about Istanbul in our one-day private tour. She's a PRO! Highly recommended.
