Perfect, 2 day Grand Tour of Istanbul

We loved spending two days with our guide. She was kind, super knowledgable, flexible and lots of fun! We booked a private tour and enjoyed the priviliges immensely: very well designed and delivered. Thank you.

Fascinating day out.

"Our guide had endless knowledge, insight, and patience. With degrees in economics, languages, and architecture, he was able to explain his city with both complexity and subtlety leaving us with a far richer understanding of Istanbul past and present. This wasn't the cheapest tour, but his insights were priceless."

Fantastic guide!

"Arzu is one of a kind! Even before we met up with her she gave us tips and suggestions via messages on what we could do the day before our tour. Visiting Topkapı wouldn’t have made sense without her, she made it seem so interesting telling us stories and its historical background. She definitely made this trip to Istanbul 10 times better!"

Excellent service in two cities

"I've just finished my second tour with this company. I can rate both to be perfect; way beyond my expectations. Walks in istanbul offer customised services and they were flexible to change their hours to fit my schedule. Their guides both İstanbul and Tallinn were professional and very knowledgable."

Incredible

We were very lucky in that there were only 4 of us to share this tour. Our guide was fabulous. She was very knowledgable and provided information that I think we’d have missed if we had tried to explore alone. I shall never ever forget the beauty of the Blue Mosque and the call to prayer resonating across the City.

Great historical attraction brought to life

Thank goodness we booked the tour. Our guide took us on a route around the whole palace, including the harem, bringing each place to life as we passed through. It all took a good three hours. Imagine how long it would have taken us if we had tried to do it alone! Much, much longer. Or, more realistically, we would have missed a lot of places and missed out on the stories and the descriptions our guide provided to really understand palace life.

Enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, wonderful trip!

Fantastic! My guide was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and interesting to listen to. He took us to all the interesting spots and filled us in with the relevant history. Far better than seeing it on your own. We went to the Topkapi palace and the Hagia Sophia. He was also kind enough to see us onto the bus going back to the airport once it was over.
