I have been in istanbul last month and we were staying in Acra hotel in sultanahmet area. We have visited the blue mosque by our own but couldnt get enough information for its history. Thats why we decide to take local guide with us to understand the history of this amazing land. We went Travel bazaar agency whish was just 50 mt away from our hotel. After short discussion, we booked private tour with reasonable price. Mehmet was our tour guide for old city. He really knows what he is doing; he knows a lot about the religions, roman&greek period, ottomans and Turkish history. It was fully informative day in istanbul which we were looking for. Thank you so much for your effort Mehmet, really appreciated.

Walking arround the old city with our private guide, gave us the best chance to understand the history, the differences between religions and local life. Thanks to travel bazaar that they arrange the excellent tour guide for us, jason.

Istanbul was our stopover point and we had two full days in the city. The agency was recommended us by my friend who has used their services before. I made a phone call to let them know our interests and then mr emin sent us 3 different plans with prices. As we had limited time there, we choose two days private tour which was includes almost all the historical buildings in Istanbul. Thank you very much guys to make our two days memorable & enjoyable.

I believe that if you are visiting historical monuments, you should have a tourist guide with you. I have visited the St Sophia and Blue mosque by myself but couldnt get enough information about their history from the guide books. Thats why we took private guide, Yasin, for the old city of Istanbul. He took us to hippodrome, Blue mosque, st sophia, topkapi palace and underground cistern and we got all the important informations from him. Hope to see you soon Jason.

We have been in Istanbul for only one day by cruise. Like a month before our cruise tour, we have sent an email to Travel bazaar to take guided city tour. In a few mails our plan has done by Mr Konuk. They arrange a Private car and driver for whole day that we visit the most important sights of the city (Blue Mosqu, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi palace, grand bazaar and spice bazaar). Our guide, jason, was very friendly and informative about the ruins, culture and religions. After the tour we had a lot of information about the Turkey and its culture. I wish to have a few more days in Turkey to see their local life and spectacular cuisine.

We had a short stopover in Istanbul and searched to optimize our time in the city. After a few emails, we settled our plan with mehmet who very helpful and prompt. Our first time in Istanbul turned to a great memory and we have already started to plan a trip to Turkey for next year.
