To be honest, our experience with Umit was world class!! He genuinely cared for us, ensured our safety with things as simple as crossing the road. His knowledge is world class too and shares some awesome personal stories. We have made a great new friend and would absolutely recommend this tour to everyone! Just do it and thank us later!

Umit was a great host and I had such a lovely time on tour! He's very friendly, easy to talk to, and passionate to share all his knowledge about his city's history and culture. He truly made me feel welcomed in the city, took many great photos of me, and he allowed for input to tailor our tour of the day. So glad I did this, would recommend to others! It is difficult when you are traveling alone, but Umit's kindness & passion allows sole travelers especially a chance to enjoy Istanbul fully.

We had a wonderful time exploring with Ümit. He took us to less of the popular locations which was exactly what we were looking for and made us feel comfortable walking around the city. Very friendly!

Umit was a highly knowledgeable tour guide. He was very personable and friendly, and made the best of our time together. He was on time and carried my bags for me, an unexpected and kind gesture. He is also an excellent Instagram husband! Thank you, Umit!

My friend and I found Umit to be an excellent guide during our stay in Istanbul. The tour was organized conveniently with a wealth of wonderful sites visited. Umit himself was also great company, our interactions with him were engaging and his conversational tellings were both passionate, informative and interesting. He went above-and-beyond our expectations, politely warning us about unreasonable prices and explaining his philosophy of treating us as he would friends rather than simply clients. I would strongly recommend Umit to visitors of Istanbul; he is the ideal guide.
