The experience was very nice. It was done in a way that it was not too formal, which entirely fits with the Asian side of Istanbul. It is somewhat more bucolic there, and it has a unspeakable charm. The experience is highly recommended. It is entirely great also for those that enjoy high elevations as üskudar doesnt diappoint with lovely hills, and magnificent shoreline.

Bunyamin was such an amazing guide. He was very knowledgeable and you could really see his passion and love for his country. We wouldn't have been able to explore the asian side of turkey (the local way) if not for Bunyamin. He really made our turkey trip memorable. Whenever you're in turkey, please do book bunyamin's tour! You won't regret it!

Wow. This tour with Bunyamin was amazing. Normally I just knew the Europe side of Istanbul but Asia side of Istanbul is definitely worth to see. Bunyamin showed highlight of the Istanbul and i love the camlica hill most. It s not easy to see all those place by yourself. Thank you Bunyamin again.

I had a wonderful time on the tour with Buyamin and highly recommend this tour. If you are in Istanbul and want to see something really unique, definitely book this tour. Bunyamin is very knowledgeable and shares all the stories of Istanbul. On the tour we also tasted some delicious local street food. I am really glad I joined the tour with Bunyamin.

One word: Awkward. The host wanted to cancel the reservation the night before the tour or postpone it later with a different co-host. We couldn't do that since this was our last day in Istanbul. Just 3 hours before the tour, he confirmed that he arranged a co-host, two young students who waited for us. The ladies spoke very little English, mainly talked between themselves. My wife fell asleep for a minute during the boat ride. On the Asian side, we walk near each other in silence; they made some pictures of us when we asked them, and they point out to the main buildings, but we can use Google Maps as well. We noticed that they were unsure how to move to the next destination; they used their phone a lot. After the 3rd station, we gave up and left. The host should cancel the tour, but for him, the money was more important. I don't blame the ladies who walk us around; it was courageous that they tried to guide us, but even we, the tourists, were better prepared than them.

I mean, where do I even start? It was a 10/10 experience. Our guide was Hatice, she was just wonderful! She showed us places on the Anatolian side of Istanbul that I don’t think we would ever find on our own. We saw wonderful views of the city all throughout the excursion, took amazing pictures, had delicious local food and drinks, learned about the history and architecture, and most importantly had delightful conversation with Hatice, which really helped us learn more about Turkish culture. I can’t thank Hatice enough!
