“Like a friend to show you the way.”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

True Blue planned 3 adventures for us. Akin's day tour of Istanbul was much better than the one offered by our Turkey land tour group (better price, more highlights, better timing, yummy lunch)- it was a great orientation to the city. Ephesus and Cappodocia guides were also excellent, and Cameron was monitoring our schedules and progress all the way, always ready to help. We got so much more out of our two weeks in Turkey by using the services of the friendly, helpful, and knowledgable people at TBT. Thanks for everything TBT & we'll see you next time!

“Great day in Istanbul”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

My wife and I had a great pleasure to take a day tour over the major sightseeings of Istanbul with TBT. Akin, our guide, did his best to make our day saturated with delight and positive experience. We definitely felt ourselves welcomed to this city!

“Arranged a fantastic experience in Turkey”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

I was very happy with the personal service and the arranged tours from this agent.

It was a little confusing how it works. So for those who don't know. These guys are an Istanbul agency that subcontracts out the tours to local operators. When you are then in the local areas you will have local guides.

Prices for the local services were good and much better than as advertised on the local agencies websites.

“Exploring Istanbul”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

To make the most of our short trip to Istanbul, we decided to take the help of True Blue Tours (TBT) - the "Best of Istanbul" day tour. We are glad to report that TBT ensured that we had a great time in Istanbul and we can definitely recommend TBT for their (very) friendly and professional experience.

Everything was organized very well and we also enjoyed the traditional lunch in between. The really good thing was that they customized the tour according to our preferences. As we are more the photo enthusiasts, both Akin and Eyup patiently waited while we took many pics and also showed us some great photo locations. On the other hand, if you are more interested in the historical / cultural parts, Akin / Eyup are equally knowledgeable about those aspects.

Finally, from a purely logistics point of view, having a tour guide with you in Istanbul allows you to bypass the (really) long queues that you will most likely encounter outside most tourist attractions in Istanbul - so booking a tour will definitely save you a lot of frustration and waiting time in the hot sun.
