“Unal is simply one of the best guides I've ever had... He is kind to extreme, has a massive knowledge about istambul, turkey and history/geo in general, which definitely makes a difference on your tour. We were in a group and he did his best to please and attend everyone in the most respectful and kindest way. He totally made my tour in istanbul unforgetable. :)”

“We met Unal through another coordinating tour operator. He made us love Istambul, so much so that we went back a second time on our own. Can you imagine, now that we've done the quick tour with a private tour with Unal, and a second one on our own, we hope to live long enough for a final tour with Unal again ! Being past the mid-seventies, as worldwide travellers, my wife and I would pick a Unal tour again, over all other places on earth that we visited . So, try him, you can't lose.”

“Unal is a fabulous tour guide! His knowledge about the city of Istanbul is extraordinary, as is his enthusiasm for the city’s spectacular buildings and sights. We learned so much about the history of Turkey and Istanbul on our tour. Unal is professional, polite, and charming. He let us set the pace for our day-long, private tour, and catered to our every need. We even shared a Turkish coffee at the end of the tour, which he said was a sign that we would be friends for the next 40 years. And after our day with Unal, we know that we will always have a friend in Turkey. I cannot wait to visit Istanbul and Unal again!”

“My friend, Rachel Schoonover, and I spent several days in Istanbul before leaving and returning on a Mediterranean cruise. Unal was our guide on a couple of tours. We both simply loved him. In fact, we have invited him to come to the United States and we both invited him to please come and stay with one of us. We stay in touch through Facebook and I treasure my friendship with him. He is a wonderful, knowledgeable, interesting tour guide, not to mention good-looking, which is certainly a plus. Consider yourself blessed if you have him for your guide in Istanbul!”

“I visited Istanbul last in 2018. I am a frequent travel and visited many countries. Istanbul is fantastic still with lots of cultural attractions. From the great palaces of Sultan Suleiman to great mosques and museums. People think hiring a guide seems to be waste of money. But trust me in Turkey a guide is a blessing especially a guy like Unal. This boy is a knowledge bank. He knows almost all about Turks. His language (English) is perfect and he understands us as and we understand him completely. He is one of accumulating person. Cute jolly and smart. Thanks Unal for making our trip so much exciting and memorable.”

“I stopped by in Istanbul on my way to East Africa. I only had two days in the city and wanted to not only see the sites but also learn about the culture and the people. The staff at the hotel suggested Unal as a guide as they have had great reviews by previous visitors. Unal was awesome. Enthusiastic, energetic and very knowledgeable. He even explained to me what situations to avoid when I would be on my own the next day which helped me greatly. I still have his contacts and hope to have him be our guide in a few years when I go back to Istanbul with my family.”

“Hire Unal! Don't even think about it. We engaged Unal to take our family of five on tour of Istanbul highlights during our time there last week. We had SUCH a good day on the first day that we asked and were fortunate to get him for the next day. As others have said, he is terrific! Knowledgable, enthusiastic, accommodating and really a great companion - more than a guide! He will make your touring so much more efficient, you will see and learn 2x as much, eat wonderful food and be hosted so very well with Unal. It would have been a mistake for us not to hire him. Thank you again Unal!”

“Our trip to Istanbul would not have been complete without Unal. He came highly recommended by friends and we in turn have recommended to others. Unal was not only professional and knowledgeable, he is extremely likable. Our kids loved him, in fact on a visit to a mosque our youngest (4 yrs at the time) opted to stay with Unal. So Unal said he’d take care of him while we visited and we took him up in the offer without any hesitation. Our visit was made more enjoyable because we had an insiders guide to the city.”
