        I spent the whole day with Ilknur in Istanbul and she was the perfect guide you could ask for. She really knows how to personalize a tour according to your nature and needs. For anyone looking for a great tour of Istanbul, whether group or solo, I'll definitely recommend Ilknur a 100 percent.

        My son-in-law and I just finished a wonderful night tour of Istanbul with Devanshu as our guide. It was obvious to see that Devanshu knows and loves his city, and even though we only had a few hours he was able to show us many of the sights. If we are in Istanbul again we will definitely book another tour. Thanks to Devanshu and Tours by Locals!
