“Private Guide is the way to see Istanbul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2013

On my first trip to Istanbul, my wife connected with our hotel to find a private guide. We were only there for 3 days and needed help making the best use of our time. Kudos to Dersaardet hotel for linking us up with Ilker Ulus, a professional licensed tour guide. He was fluent in English (and German) and highly knowledgeable about Istanbul. We saw an amazing amount of sites, ate at some terrific restaurants where the locals go, and received an incredible history lesson in the process of having a great time...........which did include shopping without the typical tourist hustle that is endemic in big cities. Ilker can be contacted via email at tourguide@mynet.com. He is not aware that I am writing this ecstatic review of his performance, so if you book him for your next visit to Istanbul say hello for Tia and Ritch. He is not cheap but he was worth every euro.
