Cihan Servil is an excellent guide. He is knowledgable, intelligent and very personable. We were in Istanbul a very short time and asked to tour only Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia. Cihan met us at our hotel and returned with us there in good time for our flight. I can recommend Cihan's services wholeheartedly. Judy R.

Our Tour Guide Cihan was great! He showed us all the major sites, and also tailored our tours to our interests. He showed us an amazing hidden spot on rooftops to have amazing views of Istanbul! He is very knowledgeable and I would highly recommend his tour!

Cihan really helped us out with filling our program for a weekend in Istanbul with 35 pax. He arranged two excellent tourguides that spoke perfect english (just like him) that were very flexible and showed us exactly what we wanted. He also negociated a great boat tour over the bosporus on the night of arrival for us. Great price, private... More

Cihan Sevil is a great tour guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. He engages the group (in our case my wife and I and our son) with respect and honesty. He was very efficient with time and helped us avoid the crowds, so we could see a lot of the Old Town sites in one day with plenty of time.

We shared 4 unforgettable days in Istanbul with Cihan and I can tell you there is no better guide available. His knowledge is without parallel and tailored out time to make it perfect. If you are visiting the area and want to have a guide (I HIGHLY recommend this), look no further. There are none better.

We've just spent two wonderful days with Cihan as our guide in Istanbul. As first timers to this city, Cihan provided us with a thorough introduction to Turkish history through the ages. He also advised us about great Turkish food choices. Cihan tailored the tour to our specific interests, and showed and told us many things we would not have... More

This young man can take you anywhere in greater Istanbul, and even outside to some other parts of Turkey that are a brief train ride away. He is quite knowledgeable about the sites and the history. He will follow your preferences or make some suggestions. Worth doing, as he can get you to the head of the lines as he... More

What more can want from a guide??? I spent two days with Cihan during which he guided me through many of the "must see" sites of Istanbul. He was also very flexible when on my "free day" (i.e., without a guide) rain was expected. I wanted a boat trip on the Bosphorus so I asked if we could just switch... 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.
