Eleven hours stop-over at the airport? No way! We emailed Ram and, right on time, he was at the airport, waiting for us. It was like meeting an old friend again! This time we went to Topkapi, the magnificent Sultan Palace. It was an amazing experience. We recommend Ram for his professionalism and knowledge, but also for his personality and... More

4 ageing Aussies recently had a day tour of Istanbul with Ram as our guide. We had a little mix up with our start time which was our fault so we started a bit late. Of course the Blue Mosque queue took up about an hour but the rest of the day was great. Ram is about our age so... More

We had read reviews about Ram as a guide, so I contacted him and we worked out a day tour for the old Istanbul area. We had agreed that he would meet us at 8:45 am and the day would end around 4:30-5:00 pm. He arrived right on time at our hotel and pointed out things along the way to... More

Had an amazing 2 and a half day tour of Istanbul with Zeliha as our tour guide. She was incredibly knowledgeable and very accommodating to our busy schedule (we managed to see all of the recommended places on our short trip). She also made sure we ate at fantastic local restaurants. If you're visiting Istanbul, this is the way to... More

We went on a two week 'Turkey on a Budget' tour with G Adventures.Isik was a fabulous tour guide. His knowledge of Turkey history & passion for his country made the trip interesting & helped us appreciate its culture, Turkey is a wonderful place to visit for its history, natural landscapes, ruins, the mediterranean, beaches, the people & its food....

Not our first time to Istanbul but we finally got it right. Relied on the concierge at our five-star hotel last time to arrange a tour guide and they gave us a taxi driver who spoke no English. We were mired in Saturday traffic all day and didn’t see anything we’d wanted. With that experience in mind, we contacted Ram... More

On the way back from Italy to South Africa, my sister and I decided to stop in Istanbul for the day. We contacted Ram by email and organized for him to pick us up from Ataturk for a private tour. All went according to plan and better! Ram was attentive, relaxed and very knowledgeable. We never felt we were with... More

Wonderful but hectic trip. Our guide, Ilhame Konya,was excellent. Very knowledgeable about Turkey. Highlight was my first hot air balloon ride in Cappadocia. Incredible! Looking forward to booking more trips thru Gate 1.

I read the 7 reviews here, and could agree with all, and wish I wrote as well, particularly Brett from Cincinatti, Dale from Australis and Elaine from Portland. I chose Ram not on the basis of his credentials or anything written about him, but on his responsiveness and caring to all of my questions/needs/ and requests via email for a... More
