Kemal's colleague, Rasim Terzi, took my school group of 10 teenagers on a 2-day tour of the main Sultanahmed attractions, parts of the Bosphorus and some less well-trodden parts of local Istanbul. In particular, he found us a couple of superb restaurants. When we had some airport trouble on the way back, he was there to help us with extra transport, hotel and advice. Much enjoyed and appreciated.

Since we had a very tight schedule (only one day in Istanbul), but we enjoyed our experience of Istanbul so much with the guided service from Mr. Rasim Terzi. Together with him, we went to all the "must-see" places, explored local food, and listened the fun stories of the history that you might not be able to get from the official sources.

We went to Turkey on a tour arranged from Malaysia. We were then provided a local tour guide by the name of Kemal Sendikici.

He was very knowledgeable about Turkey and knew all the great photospots. With his great sense of humour and willingness to please, the tour was very pleasant even though it was a hectic 8 days of travelling 3000km across Turkey.

Kemal is defimitely a tour guide worthy of praise and his patience does show itself even when dealing with difficult individuals in the group.

Overall my experience across Turkey was a great one and if I have the chance to come back and do a more detailed tour in Ephesus or Cappadocia, Mr Kemal Sendikici would be my first choice.
