Eyewitness tour company Turkey

Does anyone know anything about Eyewitness Tour company in Istanbul. They were recommended to me by a hotel I was considering booking in Istanbul but (judging from info on net) they don't seem to be one of the main or more popular tour companies.

Has anyone used them? Are they reliable for tours around Turkey?

rey60, Eyewitness Tours have no reference at the forums. In any case I recommend to DIY. historical attractions are mostly within easy walking distance of each other and you only need a good guide book like "DK Eyewitness Istanbul Guide" or "Rick Steves Istanbul"., both available from Amazon.

However if you want to use some good tour companies that have lots of references, here are some. "http://www.turkeytravelplanner.com/tourop/".

good luck,

Thanks for that. I do intend to do Istanbul by myself. It's the general around Turkey tour that I was thinking of booking them for. They do have the appropriate registration number with Tursab but out of the many many tour companies, there doesn't seem to be any reference or review relating to them. They have the exact itinerary that I want at a reasonable (still to be finalised) price but I am uncertain about booking someone for whom I can't find any reference or review. They might be OK or is it just better practice to book one of the more well known ones for peace of mind - but slightly higher cost?

Rey, I do not know if it is the same company, but I have found some very good references for their daily tours in Istanbul: "tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g293974-d4…" and here is their website: "http://www.eyewitnessturkey.com/". If the reviews about their daily Istanbul tours is an indcation of their overall performance, then I would book with them.

good luck,
