Это была прекрасная прогулка по прекрасному городу! Гульжамал - чудесная заботливая девушка! Подробно рассказала и сопроводила картинками, как добраться до места встречи, купить Стамбулкарт и т.д. Мы сразу нашлись! Очень комфортное и легкое общение, рассказы про местную жизнь и немного истории без занудных дат и имен - бесценно. Мы останавливались у магазинчиков, если видели что-то интересное. Вдоволь гладили и фотографировали котиков. Ходили по таким местечкам, куда бы сами не дошли точно и точно бы не выбрались обратно. Посидели в чудесной кафешке... Обфотографировались всласть! В общем, Гульжамал, спасибо Вам огромное! А поскольку Стамбула за пять дней лично мне не хватило, то я планирую еще вернуться, и вернуться к Гульжамал!

Прогулка была отличной. Я уже не впервые пользуюсь Локали сервисом и очень надеялась, что будет все как на прогулке в Венеции. Выбирали гида вместе с молодым человеком и что сказать: Гульжамал как и со мной могла поговорить про темы девчачьи насущные, так и обсудить футбол и рассказать интересные факты про турецких болельщиков с моим парнем, да и попутно показать Стамбул и рассказать про него :) Все было классно, увлекательно и в конце Гульжамал ещё отправила нас во вкусную местную кафешку и дала рекомендации по блюдам. Спасибо гиду и сервису. Будем планировать новое путешествие и снова обратимся к вам)

Я получил исчерпывающюю информацию как лучше добраться, общение было довольно четким. Я прилетел раньше, чем планировал, поэтому успел приехать в город более чем на 1 час раньше планового времени встречи, но Гульжамал смогла оперативно подстроиться под эти изменения и мы начали прогулку раньше. Гульжамал действительно знает истории о почти всех местах в районах Кадыдёй и Мод, это довольно удивительно, т.к она живет в Стамбуле не с рождения. Спасибо и удачи!

Ege is amazing. She is very sweet and she will plan everything according to your needs. I had the most remarkable tour with her. Not only everything was perfect, but I felt, in every instance, that she truly cared about me, and did her best to make the day memorable. She took me to all the spots you would want to go from historic places to hidden gems to the local places where you would not go otherwise. She made me taste all the local drinks and food and was incredibly nice and helpful all the time.

Our walk was around 7 hours. Guljamal brought us to different parts of Istanbul, in Asia and Europe. Guljamal is very intelligent and knowledgeable about the city and its history. We liked our walk and chat very much. Strongely recommend to everyone who wants to get to know Istanbul and atmosphere of its districts.

I spent two delightful days with Burak. He designed a very comprehensive plan totally based on my must-see destinations. We did them all and a few surprises of his own. I saw an Istanbul most visitors won't. It was wonderful. I asked him to take me to the city of Bursa, a good distance away, and he did. Burak does lots of planning and research for his clients and that results in a very special experience. He speaks excellent English, is very friendly and really wants his clients to be happy. You will not be sorry to have spent time with him and your day(s)will be filled with fun, food, and learning. I give him 10 stars out of 10! Deborah Boily Houston, Texas

We had an excellent walk around both European and Asian sides of Istanbul with Guljamal. She was incredibly helpful and knowledgable. She speaks English Russian and Turkish fluently and some others too so it was easy to communicate. Guljamal knows a lot about local processes and was extremely helpful in helping us with some tourism visa issues too. She even helped us buy a simcard! Highly recommend!

There aren't enough great things that I can say about Ege and our tour with her. Having muddled through a couple of days in Istanbul on our own, my wife and I then had our scheduled tour with Ege and it was a whole new world! Ege is amazing! We hit it off with her immediately, and right away we were starting our adventure. Ege took us to the cutest town (Kuzguncuk) on the Asian side and we had the best little Turkish breakfast. She then took us to Kadıköy for a locals-typical day in the market, including shopping and an awesome lunch. Finally, we ferried it back to the European side and made it to the Grand Bazaar for more shopping. We rode ferries, taxis, and even the tramway, covering so much of the Istanbul that we wouldn't have seen on our own. And the best part was that we knew we were in the best hands, not worrying about communicating with the locals, choosing what food to eat, finding the right ferry to ride, buying tickets, knowing where to go -- we worried about none of these, thanks to Ege! LIke I said, I can't say enough about how much our tour with Ege made our entire trip. She's friendly, smart, knowledgeable, funny, personable, and down-to-earth. Needless to say, we recommend using Localie (and requesting Ege) to anyone who's visiting Istanbul. Thank you so much, Ege!

I cannot say enough good about Guljamal and the experience shared with her in Istanbul!! She is an amazing human being, very gracious and patient with my many questions. She even helped me overcome a little fear of heights as we climbed to the top of Galata Tower. I highly suggest anyone to follow her through the intriguing streets and neighborhoods of a wonderful city!!

Istanbul

Istanbul is a multi-colored giant that connects completely different parts of the world - Europe and Asia. It is not surprising that the city mixed all the most contrasting. Istanbul survived after the tsunami of history, but it didn't collapse, it has stood. But every stroke of time was imprinted on the city's body like a tattoo. You can't spend a couple of days in Istanbul, visit a few places from the guidebooks and say that you've been here. The city will not probably open to you its special heart, and you'll be able to see only the cover. You must dive into Istanbul, breath it deeply in lungs. And our locals will help you to do it smoothly - they will lead you along secret paths to places where you'll hear the heartbeat of Istanbul.
