I have been to Istanbul several times so wanted to see how the locals live and areas not usually seen by tourists. Yunus was my outstanding guide who communicated very well ahead of the visit. Even though only two had bought the tour, he did...More
I cannot speak highly enough about this tour group, with Yunus Emre as the principal tour guide and several other tour guides that work with him (Apo, Oz, Iskender and Yasin). Yunus spent one week with our group of 26 helping us to travel from...More

Yunus Emre and his team did an excellent job. The organization, timeline and hotel selected in Istanbul was confortable, well located and clean. All tour guides were knowledgeable and customer oriented specially Apo (our direct tour guide). I recommend this company and their excellent staff.
Yunus and his team were incredible from start to finish. Always willing to go above and beyond to make sure the group enjoyed themselves. Our balloon ride at sunrise in cappadocia was a highlight of our tour for me. We all learned a lot about...More
I loved getting the feel of the locals. We visited a hookah bar and had great laughs smoking and drinking tea with the locals. There are cats everywhere in Istanbul, and we saw how the neighborhoods cared for the community cats. Lots of charm and...More
Several of my friends and I went on a private tour that was organized through Real Istanbul Tours. The service was outstanding. They really bent over backwards trying to ensure that each of the guests had the best experience possible. I joked with Yunus, the...More
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.

Well, since Cappadocia and Ephesus aren't near Istanbul you would have to fly to each of those places separately (especially in order to do all of that in a weeks time - in my opinion). Your best bet would be to contact Emre at the tour company to put a package together that suits but I would maybe go and spend 3-4 days in Istanbul to see all of the things you want to see and then fly to Cappadocia and then Ephesus. I'm not sure about the other because I didn't do that and I'm not sure about the location and how you'd fit it in the itinerary. Since you're young and don't have a big group, it's probably not a problem to go and get all of that done. For us, we had a group of 60 people, so it took us 14 days to see all of the things we saw. We spent 10 days in Istanbul and then flew to Cappadocia for 2 days and then to Ephesus for one day. But you could easily knock out a lot of your wants in 3-4 days. Then do Cappadocia for 2 days and Ephesus for one and maybe the other for one? But talk to Emre and he would gladly help you.
