“A very well-organised and informative tour”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

My group and I found Semih to be very informative and a pleasant personality. We were able to fit in quite a lot into one day in the Sultanahmet area. Thank you, Semih!

“Splendid Two Day Private Tour”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

My family booked a group tour with Semih for 2 days in Istanbul. Our guide, Yasin, took us to every major attraction that we requested. He was highly knowledgeable and friendly. Since we had customized our tour, Yasin also provided suggestions for restaurants and other interesting sites. From booking with Semih to touring with Yasin, it was truly exceptional.

I will recommend anyone going with a group to get a quote for private tour. It is perhaps the best value in Turkey.. PERIOD!

“A great day tour in Istanbul!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We booked our private tour online with Semih at Via Turca Tours easily and without difficulty. We were met at the pier by our tour guide, Murat. He is a trained guide and very attentive to our needs and requests. We were a small party of 3 and needed some extra attention for my elderly mother, which Murat provided easily and enthusiastically. With his help, we were able to see and navigate Topkapi Palace, the Spice Market and the Rustem Pasha Mosque. He made reservations for us to have dinner at a specific restaurant and recommended dishes we might enjoy. He also arranged for the manager of the restaurant to call a taxi after dinner to return us to the pier. He was extremely knowledgeable and we very much enjoyed visiting and working with him! I would recommend this tour company and specifically Murat without reservation.

“Worth every penny”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

The best way to see the city. Fast and custom responses (any question I sent via email was answered that day). Patient and kind, our tour took 2 hours longer due to our toddler needing to take breaks. The information was fun and informative and delivered very well. Could not recommend more
