Spent a half day with Sinan Erol visiting a few of Istanbul's most historical sites. He is very knowledgable about the sites, communicates very well, and clearly paints a picture of what some of the sites used to look like hundreds of years ago. Had we been in Istanbul longer, we would have loved to book him again to guide... More

Spent a day tour with Guide Sinan Erol and impressed by his excellent way of describing history of best places including Hippodrome, Blue Mosque, Haghia Sophia, Grand Bazaar, Topaki Palace and Little Haghia Sophia. Most wonder was Haghia Sophia and Palace. Wonderful places to watch with a person like Sinan Erol. I would recommend him as best guide to my... More

We hired Sinan for two days in Istanbul. He was fabulous with lots of knowledge to share and the ability to modify our tour on the go to meet our desires. Actually were in Istanbul when the airport attack occurred and still felt safe and well guided with Sinan. I would highly recommend him.

We did a great tour with Sinan Erol visiting the Dolmabahce Palace as well as Eyup cable car and view from te Asia hillside. Sinan is an informative and friendly guide who managed to effectively enlighten both in English and Spanish withiut taking a breathe. Wouks definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to learn more about this great city.

My adult daughter and I, along with a friend or two, had Emine as our tour guide for two days.

We saw Topkapi... More

It is my first time in Turkey, and I am visiting Istanbul with my mother and sister. My family and I had been to few places in our own but certainly you cannot explore the true beauty of this beautiful city without having a professional tour guide like Sinan Erol. The trip was well organised and we were picked up... More

We did a full day tour of Istanbul's old town visiting Hagia Sophia, Sultan Ahmed (Blue) Mosque, Topkapai Palace etc. Our tour was led by Sinan Erol, who did an excellent job. He was at once competent, knowledgeable and funny (with a dry sense of humor). The tour was definitely worth the time and money. While we did look at... More

With only 3 days to see Istanbul and travelling alone using a Tour Guide was recommended. So glad I did. The first day I went with a group and it was good but by chance I was the only person booked the next day on a walking tour. My guide was Sinan EROL and he was a perfect guide in... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
