About
I am a professional and licenced private tour guide based in Istanbul. I have been working as a tour guide since 2008 and offer guiding services in Istanbul and all over Turkey. If you want to discover and learn about Istanbul and Turkey, you can hire your own private tour guide. I take groups of all sizes and can show and explain all about Turkish culture, traditions and history. Furthermore, when you have a private tour guide in Istanbul or anywhere in Turkey, you do not have to wait in lines to get into museums or main attractions, we can skip the lines! Your private tour guide will show you the best of everything and give you the best offers and experiences. If you have an offical guide, you avoid ticket lines and get all information about museums.As a licensed guide, I will make your visit memorable!
Istanbul, Türkiye

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 went for the yacht cruise on Bosporus as recommended to us by our favourite Istanbul guide and a dear friend Zeki.
Our cruise guide was very informative and spoke very good English. We learnt very interesting details on Istanbul… the staff onboard Gokhan was very helpful too. He clicked lots of photos for me and my family and made it extra special for us !

Zeki organised transfers to my hotel and the airport which were very comfortable and on time. Next I book two trips: one privet tour to Topkapi Palace and Two Continents tour. Zeki has a lot of knowledge about history and talks very interestingly. Apart from that he is so kind and speaks English fluently. I was alone in Istanbul but Zeki helped me to feel save and comfortable there. I wholeheartedly recommend Zeki and Manoyla Travel Agency. Next time I will choose Zeki again:)

Zecki organised our families transfers and guides in Istanbul . All the drivers were on time and drove safely
Our guides were informative and helped us see so much in Istanbul. We especially liked Mr Murat who was so much fun and went out of his way with the driver to make sure we saw everything we wanted
Zecki always communicated with so much detail and very promptly.
Thank you Zecki

Zeki was very helpful, friendly, polite and super quick to respond to any questions and requests for booking tours, hammam experiences, tickets to museums etc. He has a great knowledge of all kinds of fun and enjoyable tourist experiences in and out of the city of Istanbul and can cater to your budget easily. Highly recommend his services for group or solo experiences as well.

I went with my family of 5 folks to Turkey. Due to passport issues, I had not planned my trip earlier. I took a rental from the airport and Zeki was making my reservation on the fly.

I had a wonderful experience dealing with Zeki. I went to country side and there are not many folks who can speak english. Zeki despite being in Istanbul was very helpful in dealing with those situations.

Zeki has a great communication skills. I highly recommend him

We ( group of 4) just spent 10 days touring Istanbul, Cappadocia, and the Seven Churches of Revelation organized by Zeki. He arranged tour guides, airport transfers, helped with in country flights…all went smoothly. Two of our guides were excellent, one was average. All our drivers were excellent-vehicles were very clean. All were very professional. I would use this your company again. Zeki kept in touch with us daily to make sure all the arrangements were executed. He was also very flexible when we wanted to change the itinerary. We weren’t able to do the hot air balloons in Cappadocia due to weather. He arranged for us to do it in Pamukkale last minute. For the excellent service we got, it was money well spent. The price was very reasonable for our group of 4. Don’t hesitate to book with him.

The amazing city Istanbul is situated on two continents, Asia and Europe. A cruise on the Bosporus strait is a great way to see this beautiful view. It was a fantastic and safety trip with the guide Zeki.
Zeki tell us the facts all days about all of our sites and answer all questions without hesitation and make sure we felt welcome. The guide Zeki is on time, knowledgeable, clever and very enjoyable, also he is a good photographer. He tell us attention details historically, traditionally… for example, the Hippodrome are two obelisks older looking is actually younger than the Egyptian obelisks…. He take us to try new foods like Kofte, kebabs, börek, ka’ak….and sweet dessert like Baklava…. As well, we walk past the blue Mosque and the Aya Sofia……; Zeki tell us a lots of interesting information and we visit several cities. It was a wonderful tour!
