Serhat was a fantastic guide, he showed us around his Grand Bazaar with great pride and insiders knowledge. There were only 2 of us which made it very special and Serhat was in no hurry to move us on. He explained the art of bargaining and took us to some special places we would never have found on our own. At the end of the tour he recommended a place for lunch which was amazing and also ensured we knew our way back to the hotel. Thank you Serhat for the introduction to wonderful Istanbul.
Incredible. Definitely to the morning tour - the Bazaar is not crowded. Excellent guide. Lots of information. Lots of fun!
The small-group turned out to be a private tour. Our guide Apo determined what we wanted to see and what we didn't want to see and tailored everything to us. Overall a great experience.

Great tour guide and great tour.
extremely knowledgable and personal guide who took me all over the Grand Bazaar to see things I would never have found on my own. Yuke also helped me by teanslating my bank problem to the person in charge.
A most enjoyable experience in evry respect.
This small group tour turned into me having my own private guide as I was the only one on it. It was fantastic as my guide showed me some great stores and told me what is locally made (which is very little) and the stuff not to buy. We went to a lovely coffee shop and enjoyed some Turkish coffee. Afterwards my guide took me on a walk of the area to look at the local architecture as I had enough of shopping. The guides in Turkey have to complete a 4 year course so are all highly knowledgable and are really friendly.
This tour guide was brilliant no shopping just the history

Serhat took my husband and I on a private tour of the Bazaar, very interesting and fun. I definitely would not have been able to appreciate the history and see the little hans, gold and silversmiths with out Serhat. Went in the morning when all the shopkeepers were just opening and setting up for the day, the best time as the bazaar was not crowded.
Ended up getting a private tour with Serhat, which I thoroughly enjoyed, particularly the visit to the silversmith and goldsmith! He was able to answer all my questions (there were lots). The visit to the carpet manufacturer - while somewhat interesting - was not necessary.
There were only the two of us in the tour. We met with the young guide on time. We walked the bazaar and received some interesting inside information.
