Это был наш первый визит в Стамбул и первый экспириенс на Airbnb, и благодаря Бураку все прошло просто великолепно! Мы очень рады, что решили познакомиться с городом именно таким образом. В течение двух дней мы гуляли по Стамбулу, посещали основные достопримечательности и галереи, Бурак рассказывал о городе и угощал нас турецкими блюдами. Также мы успели покататься на яхте на закате и приготовить прекрасный турецкий завтрак. Помимо этого Бурак организовал нам трансфер в аэропорт и дал очень много полезных рекомендаций и советов. На протяжении всего времени Бурак стремился сделать все, чтобы нам было хорошо, подстраивал маршрут под нас, постоянно интересовался все ли нам нравится и что бы мы еще хотели. Бурак очень приятный, гибкий, внимательный и тактичный человек, нам с ним было максимально комфортно, легко и весело. Было ощущение, что мы просто гуляем с другом! Burak, thank you for these two amazing days, we had a really good time with you! Hope to see you in Saint Petersburg one day :)

Burak was a great host. I had a private tour of Galata area, the one on one time with Burak was exactly what I wanted. He gave me a great tour of the city, great Turkish coffee and amazing food. I’d highly recommend him to get that authentic Turkish experience !

У меня были всего одни сутки в Стамбуле, поэтому я решила организовать себе индивидуальную экскурсию на весь день. Это было очень хорошим решением. Burak заранее обговорил со мной маршрут и согласовал какие впечатления я хочу получить. Он заехал за мной на машине, на протяжении всего дня следил за тем, чтобы все было в порядке. Даже не смотря на то, что я плохо говорю по английски, он находил подход, как мне рассказать все о городе. Да и просто беседа была легкой и веселой. На протяжении всего дня он следил чтобы мне все нравилось, рассказывал важную информацию о том, как и что делать, когда я буду гулять по Стамбулу одна. В итоге я за один день получила столько впечатлений, что хватило бы на неделю! Это была лучшая экскурсия в моей жизни!

The experience with Volkan and Burak was really awesome. They paid attention to detail, and always checking in if its something i would be interested in-so it was very personalized service. The locations we visited were amazing, I got to learn and see so much over 2 days. I had some personal requests which they really went above and beyond to respond to. I ended my trip with a VIP shuttle to the airport organized by them which was a relief because taxis in Istanbul are so hard to get and unpredictable . Thank you so much!

The absolute best way to see Istanbul. After a different tour of the city fell through at the last moment, I needed to find a replacement quick. So, after seeing Burak's listing for an all-inclusive, customizable, private experience I sent him over a message with an optimistic itinerary for 1 day: - Turkish Breakfast and Rooftop Walk - Historical Highlights of Istanbul - Private Yacht Ride I received an almost immediate response from him with a very reasonable quote. When Burak says “All inclusive” he means it. From him picking me up from my Airbnb to our frequent stops for snacks and coffee to tourist attractions it was all covered, I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Not only is Burak knowledgeable about Istanbul, he’s also personable and genuinely cares about his guests having a good experience. In total the experience lasted over 10 hours and it was like hanging out with a friend I had known for years. I don’t know what else to say except, I would do all the parts of this experience again. The breakfast was massive, delicious, and even now, several days later, by far the best breakfast I’ve had during my time in Istanbul. The historical tour took me to all the greatest hits: Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sophia, Galata Tower. The only things we didn’t see were the things currently under renovation, but there’s no way around that. And the private yacht ride was a great way to unwind at the end of day, drinking a bottle of wine, as the sun set over the city. What I’m saying is book this experience, you aren’t going to regret it!

Highly recommend if you’re looking for a personalized experience tailored to your interests. The experience with Burak is best described as traveling a long way and having the comfort of a friend show you around his city and help you find what you’re looking for. Whether you want to experience the best food, shopping or site seeing, Burak offers a truly authentic experience. I really wanted to find Turkish rug vendors to partner with for my business and Burak did the research beforehand to find the right people, and then came with us to meet them to help translate, vet them and make sure we found what we were looking for. Above and beyond!
