My colleague and I had a fantastic afternoon with Neslihan - she organised a perfect itinerary for us and is a charming lady with a fantastic breadth of knowledge about Istanbul. She is also very obviously proud of her country and city and that comes through in her passion for its' history. The only thing that Neslihan could not arrange was the weather, and despite the rain it was a really enjoyable afternoon. Thank you Neslihan, you are an outstanding guide.

Great tour guide - really friendly and knowledgeable. I was travelling alone & only had 2 hours 30 mins to see istanbul (was on a layover) and Neslihan brought me around The Hague Sophia, Blue Mosque, Spice Market, Galatea Bridge & Galata Tower. We even fit in a Turkish coffee & she read my fortune! Such good fun - would highly recommend her.

My family and I had the pleasure of Neslihan's guidance last week. She is very punctual, organized and always ready with a plan.

She adjusted with the needs of the group's senior citizens and ensured that everyone had a wonderful Turkish experience. Like my dad said, our trip was made enjoyable and memorable by Neslihan.

I can strongly recommend her to anyone looking to discover the many wonderful faces of Istanbul.

We had a wonderful one day tour with Neslihan for our group of 18 people. Neslihan arranged a private bus and built for a us a tour about Islamic art. Neslihan is a great guide, she knows very well and loves Istanbul, and has a good sense of humor. Neslihan was very flexiable and help us plan a tour which was well above our expectations.

I asked for a female guide and I got Neslihan who was just wonderful! Very knowledgable and perfect English (highly recommended). Like many other reviewers, this was my first time getting a tour guide and I don't regret it.

Neslihan provided an excellent guiding experience for my wife and I, showing us some really interesting aspects of old Istanbul. We particularly enjoyed the spice market and one of the Hans in the Bazaar. She was very knowledgable and pleasant company.

She is perfect! I had a very nice day with her. She is smart, friendly, kind, and fantastic! She did her job very good. She knows everything that you need to know. She is really good also to managing the time and itinerary. And the best thing, she help me a lot to arrange my next trip. If next time I visit Turky again, i will ask for her to accompany me again ;)

I cannot say enough good things about Neslihan. Very knowledgeable and kind. I am a solo woman traveler and I could never of learned or enjoyed this wonderful city without her expert ability. I loved every minute and am very thankful for the recommendation of friends that had also used her service in the past. Worth every penny.

Neslihan was a fantastic tour guide, very fast to respond to questions and helped us plan where we wanted to go and see. The air con van was very comfortable. Neslihan was on time and knew the city well. She also kept my 3 year old entertained and took us for a nice lunch. I would definitely recommend Neslihan to anyone looking for a guide of Istanbul.

5 stars Chris M. 26 Sep 2014

Neslihan was a great guide for our small group. She planned our tour and time well, took us to see interesting places (the Underground Cistern and the Summer Palace on the Asia side are must sees!) and was knowleable and informative throughout without boring us with too much detail. She speaks good English and is fun to be with. I have no hesitation to recommend her to others

Neslihan Akin was amazing today as our guide for Aya Sofya, cistern, lunch, Chora Church, Greek Patriarchate and panoramic view with coffee and sweets. She was very knowledgeable especially about Turkish culture, history and major religions of the world. Her presentations were enthusiastic and interesting. It was easy communicating our interests with her to help plan the day's activites. Highly recommended.

5 stars Paul T. 10 Apr 2014

Nesilhan was our tour guide for two days in Istanbul in April 2014. She is an excellent guide; both very knowledgable and very good company! Along with the traditional Istanbul tourist sights she also took us to places that we would never have gone to without her excellent local knowledge. Her English is perfect and we enjoyed chatting to her about all aspects of life in Istanbul. She is also very knowledgable about the history of Turkey. She is a lovely person and we highly recommend her!

4 stars Saci N. 05 Apr 2015

Neslihan was quite helpful and knowledgeable and guided us for multiple days in Istanbul and in the grand bazaar and to select the food in the restaurants.

Only thing was, she seemed to be in a hurry to wrap up and leave at the end of the day.
