Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked a super last minute 1-day trip to Ephesus and Pammukale through our hotel concierge Onur @ The JW Marriott Bosphorus as we didn’t want to miss these sites but couldn’t find more time than one day to see them. He quickly connected us with this excellent travel agency who organized everything from car transfers, flights, the fantastic tour guide Tijen and a driver for the day. The whole trip was seamless despite booking 1.5 days in advance.

Tijen masterfully managed the time and accommodated all our wishes for what we wanted to do quickly and what we wanted to spend more time seeing. She even managed to take us to the great Kismet Pide restaurant on the very short & super packed itinerary with a lot of driving. She was very informative and is obviously very knowledgeable on all the sites, yet she did not over do it. She gave us space to explore on our own was never once overwhelming or pushy. She offered opportunities to do things outside our schedule that we had time for and was so helpful with recommendations for other legs of our trip in different cities. She treated us like family, very warm, welcoming and really cared about showing us the best sides of Ephesus and Pammukale. We had a wonderful experience & would highly recommend both Tiger as a tour guide and the Popular Travel Agency for all your touring needs.

I came to know about Istanbul Popular Travel through on line search. The first service they provided to me and my family in 2018 was a private boat tour to Princes islands. in 2019 and again this year we used their services which we found excellent in every sense: their staff are so accommodating, highly responsive, very punctual, polite and courteous. We have used their guided tour, airport transfers, and private boat tours and all were excellent.

We have done multiple multi day tours all around Turkey with this team and each one has been amazing. They will go above and beyond to make sure your trip is exactly what you are hoping for. We travel with two little guys (1 and 4) and even the small details are taken care of to ensure a smooth, well planned vacation. Highly recommended!

Me and my wife went on vacation with a cruise ship . But tour prices on the ship were very high. Then we searched on the internet and found this company we made reservation for 4 hours private tour. (We bought a half day tour because we had limited time. )Our guide Shaker met us at the port just in time..
We spent 4 hours in old town.
Our guide was amazing he explained all the historical details to us in a very short time my favorite place was under ground water cistern.
Wish we had more time in this
beautiful city.. We will definitely return again and do İstanbul and Cappadocia tour..
Thank you so much ..mr. Shaker 👍🏻👍🏻

We were the only two people on our tour and our guide Ali made it a fantastic day for us. He tailored the tour to suite us better without skipping anything.
We were picked up on time at the hotel and as we didn’t have to collect other guests went straight into the tour. Ali seemed to know every detail and was able to explain anything we wanted to know. The mosques were a highlight for me! The first half of the day was spent on foot but everything was very close to one another so I didn’t have any issue with that. After a local lunch we continued the tour with a cruise.
After a full program and to much information to remember we were brought back to the hotel.
I would recommend this tour for anyone who want to see a good snapshot of Istanbul in a day.

Had a great tour of Istanbul with Ali. He was waiting for our group at the port and had arranged for transportation to the centre at no extra charge, even though we had only paid for a walking tour! He was very personable and extremely knowledgeable. Ali used his connections to help us to avoid long waits at the Topkapi Palace. He even treated us to Turkish coffee at the end of the day! Excellent experience and would highly recommend Ali as your guide!

We had the lucky experience to have Tijen Oral as our full day guide to Ephesus. She and her excellent driver picked us up at Izmir Airport. Tijen is extremely knowledgeable, and she took the time to get to know us and go thoughtfully explain everything we needed to know. She is the best guide I have ever had.

The tour hit most of the highlights, Ali our tour guide was amazing! He was very knowledgeable, engaging and provided so many details about Istanbul and it’s wonderful sites. I only had a few days in Istanbul and was very well satisfied with this tour. Money well spent.

We took a trip to the princess’ islands with ali riza, such a great and educated guide. We had a great time walking on the island and ate lunch by the seaside. I definitely recommend this trip to all family and friends that are looking for a great time.
