The tour with Atakan was great! He was very informative and I learned a lot about his country, their history and culture. The tour was well-planned and organised, and communication wasn't a problem at all as he spoke very good English! He was also very accommodating and flexible, and I even learned how to make ceramics because he brought me to one of the stores and they did a free demo, without expecting me to purchase anything. Thank you Atakan for being a great tour guide!

My girlfriend and I had a very enjoyable day in Istanbul with Atakan and he was fabulous! We found him to be extremely knowledgeable on history and the sites he toured with us. He was easy to be with, very considerate of what our expectations were and he delivered an excellent tour! We were impressed with his ability to navigate the crowds at the Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace, getting us to the front of the line.

My tour with Akatan is very amazing !! He is a very experienced , knowledgable and professional tour guide. He knows what is the best place to visit in istanbul and well planned and organized the tour for me. He explained all the Turkish culture and history to me patiently under such hot weather and also tells me lots of the interesting story of the the turkish architecture. We also tried lots of traditional and delicious turkish cuisine together. I highly recommend his tour to everyone :)

Atakan was a great guide. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable, but he was also very personable and kind. I feel quite lucky for having the experience that I did and I would highly recommend him to anyone. If you like guides who have both a solid historical knowledge about the sites that will be visited and local knowledge about the modern city then Atakan is a great choice. I'm super happy that I had the chance to meet and be toured by him.

I had the chance to spend a few hours with Atakan walking downtown Istanbul and visit all I wanted to see of this beautiful city. It was a pleasure to have his knowledge by my side when visiting. He knows a lot about the main sites, I highly recommend him if you want to know more about this place!

We've been on many tours in many countries and Atakan is at the top compared to all!. He has genuine enthusiasm and that is not easily found. His knowledge is excellent and the itinerary showed his experience - no wasted time, very entertaining, and no miscues. He even provided advice for the next day that worked out perfectly.Highly recommend Atakan for a real experience.

Atakan was absolutely wonderful! We did a day tour and could not have asked for a better tour guide. He was so personable, caring and very knowledgeable about EVERYTHING! There is not one question that he couldn't answer. I highly recommend him to all and will surely do so again with Atakan if I go back to Turkey...

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you very much for nice words Saika! It was a great pleasure for me to guide you. Hope to see you again..

5 stars Hiroshi Y. 23 Jul 2015

Atakan gave us an excellent tour that covered all the highlights of Istanbul. He was extremely helpful, personable and familiar with every bits of details, making our tour a memorable time for us. He provided us with the "taste of Istanbul" that we were looking for. We felt his love for his city and we left with a real appreciation for Istanbul. We are very sad that we couldn't spend more days with him. Thank you for everything Atakan!

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you very much for your nice words Hiroshi! You were very easy going and I really enjoyed my time with you. Hope to see you again in Istanbul or somewhere else ;)

5 stars Adam N. 18 Jul 2015

Atakan is an excellent, terrific and awesome guide! We hired him for a walking tour of the old-city and we really liked him. He speaks fluent English and his deep knowledge of history, mythology and archaeology made our visit to the sights come to life, truly a highlight of our trip! He also recommended a terrific restaurant for our dinner after the tour that I will never forget. I highly recommend Atakan to anyone who wants to see and feel the real Istanbul.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you very much for your nice words Adam! It was a great pleasure for me to guide you and hope to see you again, please don't forget that you have a friend in Istanbul :)
