I was looking for a private tour of 7 hours to visit Istanbul. After searching the web I called viator and they found the best tour for me. My tour guide was Saban, he was so profesional!, he picked me up at the airport with a driver and made my short visit a very good experience. He was always very respectful with a very good sense of humor and he gave me all the historic information regarding the sightseeing. I totally recommend this tour operator in Istanbul!
Fantastic guide - ensured we got the most out of this wonderful city

Our guide was lovely. Kind, knowledgeable, informative. She ensured we proceeded at our pace, and involved us in choices with how we would cover the various sites over the 2 days. Would 100% recommend Viator and Cicek for this trip. It made it an unforgettable weekend in Istanbul.
Our tour through VIATOR with guide, Cicek Hekimgil, was a delight. We got to see all the mayor sights, and Cicek was very well informed and her English was excellent. We had lunch both days at her recommendation as well as dinner the night before. Couldn’t have been more satisfied.
Our guide,Kadir Kucukeren, arrived at our hotel right on time both days and gave us two very full days.
He was well prepared with a recommended order for the main building visits, along with a route and full history through each (particularly Topkapi Palace), all tailored to our questions and preferences. While we covered most of the principal sights the first day, when it came to the second we managed to wander off-piste to an extent and pick up some great insights into how the city had worked historically and how lives are still led, particularly around the Grand Bazaar. We finished with a boat tour along each side of part of the Bosphorus.
More expensive than some tours but flexible and informative and a great way to pack in as much as possible in two days in the company of a passionate, warm-hearted and humorous local.

Estuvimos encarnados con Ilguin, nuestro gua en español, nos enseñó la mezquita azul, Santa Sofía, el Palacio Topaki y el palacio sumergido con mucha maestría y explicando de manera simple y directa lo principal de cada monumento, dándonos tiempo libre para hacer fotos, Experiencia fantástica,
La atención de los guías fue exclente!! Nos contactaban 1 día antes para darnos su nombre y confirmar su llegada por nosotros al hotel. Los dos fueron muy puntuales, hablan excelente español y tienen mucho conocimiento de la historia ademas de ser muy agradables y amables. Visitamos todo!!!! Super recomendable!!!
Nuestro guía fue completamente flexible sobre lo que queríamos visitar y también en cuanto a los tiempos. Su explicación fue clara y muy completa y nos recomendó un buen restaurante al finalizar el tour. Nosotros hicimos el tour sin transporte porque las distancias son caminables ye l tráfico muy pesado, así que nos movimos en tranvía y a pie. Mucho mejor que hacer un tour en grupo!
