My husband and I booked a last minute night food tour because we only had one night in Istanbul. Our taxi driver from the airport drove around in circles for an hour and we were late to the hotel and missed our pick up time. We totally understood that they couldn't wait for us. However, we contacted the company and... More

As noted previously, this tour company hires both excellent guides and poor ones. We unfortunately had one of the latter. This tour included visits to several of the Askenazic synagogues , the old Jewish quarter surrounding the Galata Tower, and the monument to the massacre of many members of the Jewish community while at prayer by Palestinian terrorists. It is... More

Serhat, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, friendly and honest. His English was superb and he really helped to bring alive some of the places we saw in the Old City. We were glad we paid a little extra for the private guide experience.

Loved visiting this old city. Beautiful sights to see and visit. Agia Sofia is a must see!! Beautiful! So many sights, not enough time. We spent 3 days. History of the city is fascinating. Bazaar is another place not to miss

We booked private walking tour and had great time with our tour guide Mehmet Tetik. http://www.turkeytravelplanner.com/guides/tetik_m.html He is very knowledgeable and has great understanding of Turkey past and present. The tour was obviously immaculately planned ahead of time based on few emails we exchanged, so we had packed two hours but at the same time we were not overwhelmed. We've... More

I joined the Classic Tour on my first day in Istanbul and we first went to visit the Aja Sofia. It was a very rainy day and was very crowded inside the building. Our guide suggested to take pictures and come back to the meeting point in 10minutes but then he "disappeared" outside with the group without waiting for me!... More

This is a tourist area Beyoglu, Taksim & Gezi Park, rather than a tourist attraction. I found it unsettling to see large numbers of police gathered around 2 water cannon carrying guns and arms that fire gas cannisters, it looked like a dangerous place to be and the police looked like they were ready to attack with brute force rather...

Staying in Sisli

Neighbourhood Profile
Sisli
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
