    Lutfi was one my guide on one of the first tours I took in Istanbul.He was on time and professional andmade it so much fun. There was so much personal attention,I really felt like I was with a good friend who was showing me the sites. He is so knowledgeable about the history and the culture of Istanbul and is a great ambassador of the city. Of course, we did all the things advertised in the tour, but he managed to weave in so many of my personal interests to make the tour relevant and personalized to me.We went for coffee, he helped me understand how to take the public transportation, gave me advice on where to find the best groceries, etc.

    As we were on the tour, he also made a point of stopping at the best areas for photos and took some great pictures of me, that I would have never been able to get on my own.

    I highly recommend Lutfi as your guide in Istanbul. You won’t be disappointed.

    Я посетил Стамбул в октябре 2020 года. Моим гидом был Лютфи. Благодаря ему я узнал много нового о Стамбуле и в целом о Турции. Считаю, что мне очень повезло с гидом. Обязательно приеду в Стамбул ещё. Спасибо, Лютфи. Ты лучший.

    Having  him  for  3 days  in  Turkey  we  are  glad to  say that  he  is  very  professional.  He  took  us  from the airport  and  we  were  all together  during  our  visit to  Turkey.  

    We  stayed  2 days  in  istanbul  then  we  went to  Cappadocia.  It  was  fabulous.  He  is  very  good  with  our  kids.

    It was  a great  experience for us  in  Istanbul to  have a tour  with  him.  We had a  walking tour all over the  city like locals  we  use  public transport.  He  showed  us old  town  and  modern  part of the city. After the  tour  we  took a  tour  on the  bosphorus which  was  amazing  with sunset. 

    We highly recommend  !

    Two weeks ago i was in istanbul. Before flying to istanbul i checked the guides on craigslist and sent emails to get an idea of ideal guide for me. Most of them replied and said different price. Mr. Lütfullah also gave me a price but he added that this was the official rate for guidance and sent a official website to check the accurate rate. I went on the website and saw the rates. While i was on that website i noticed an important note for the guidance. It says please make sure about the license of your guide as it is a must to guide you and your has to have it. I re-mailed Lütfullah and asked for the license. He replied quickly and sent a picture of it. Finally i decided that he was right person for me as i asked the other people on the craigslist about the license. Some of them even gave me half price but i didnt like the behaviour of them. Mr Lütfullah also arranged my transfer from the airport to hotel and he was surprised me at the airport as i was expecting the only the driver for the transfer. When i saw him i thought i made the true decision. While we were going to hotel he shortly told me what we can do with the options... I was worried about the tickets queue as i wanted to see the main sights. When we start to tour we didnt wait for the tickets as the official guides has private queue for the passes... He was perfect guide and really friendly. He knows what we are expecting and good photographer;-) Thank you for everything again and hope to see you. Mark Doyle

    My husband and I enjoyed a guided tour with Eren whilst we were in Istanbul in February, We found him very knowledgeable and interesting, polite and caring towards the tourists. My Husband is disabled and Erin was very understanding and considerate of this. His knowledge of Turkish History is excellent and he really enjoys his subject. I would definitely recommend Eren as a guide and I would also go an another tour with him.

    We were in Istanbul with my wife last week for 3 days' holiday. I know 3 days are not enough for visiting this nice city but we had a limited time so we wanted to visit the main sights of the Old City Istanbul. We stayed at İstanbul Box Hotel and the receptionist recommened Lütfullah to us. We didn't know him before until he came to take us to Old City. He gave us to options to reach there either by public transport or cab. We chosed the public transport as we want to see also the how is the daily life of İstanbul. Finally we reached the Sultanahmet and visited Topkapı Palace, Hagia Sophia Museum, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern. Normally the tour ends at 5 pm but there eas no end for him ,he came with us to nice fish restaurant. After the dinner we got tired and came back to hotel and had our turkish coffe at the hotel with him. He was a friendly guide and replied all of our questions with a sincere smile. He also knws where we can take nice photos of İstanbul, like a experienced photographer. We will come back to Turkey again and definately we really want to see him if he is available. Thank you for everything!!!

    I was in Istanbul in January, so before I left I looked on craigslist for a local guide which I always do because I find them to be better. I ran across a few guides, I emailed them all got responses back from all of them. But Mr. Lutfullah response back was more than just this is my price for a full day tour or a half day. He asked have I found a hotel if not he could recommend a few, and also if you would like I will meet you at airport to take you back to your hotel free of charge. Also I stopped in Israel before coming to Turkey he checked in with me while I was there just to make sure that I was enjoying myself and to if I needed anything before I arrived in Turkey. I gave him and idea of what I wanted to see and do and he mapped out the whole tour for me, I was with him for 4 days which we had such a good time. He went at the pace I wanted him to, he was very accommodating to anything that I asked or requested. It was more like exploring the city with a friend, not a guide. He took me to the best sites, and the greatest places to eat. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is visiting Istanbul. I will be returning back for next June 2015 with a group of 35 and Mr. Lutfullah is working on every deal right for the trip. I am really excited to see what he has planned for my group, I know he will do a great job in the planning. He takes really great photos as well!!!!!

    I was in istanbul two months ago for a business trip. I met with him while ı was on a short bosphorus cruise on a public ferry. He was explaning sth to his private guests. Then i approached him and asked whether i can also listen him or not as i was bored while reading my guide book. (As reading was not good instead of looking around and taking pictures on the bosphorus) After getting permission, i started listen to him carefully. While he was telling us the history he added short stories of istanbul... I had limited time and asked him for a shopping tour to Grand bazaar and spice market. It was a perfect day . I also even bought a nice carpet with a reasonable price. He was so helpful that i was his guest not customer. I often come to Turkey and next time he will definately be my guide to other nice cities of Turkey. Thank you again and look forward to meeting you soon Paul Smith
    I personally met Mr.Lütfullah Fındıkoğlu during my last 10 days trip to Istanbul and Turkey. He was recommended to me by my Hotel Staff , The Marmara Pera, in Istanbul. Since the very first day I had the chance to greatly evaluate his capability of excellent organizer and tour guide, I was able to appreciate its qualities of perfect punctuality and preparation in the field of tourism . Mr. Lutfullah always explained very simply and with easy terminology, all the details of the historical sites of Istanbul and neighborhoods also having regular care to show the daily aspects of the turkish people. In doing so he introduced me and my fellow travelers at tourist sites, restaurants and neighborhoods,which I would have never visited or known without his high professionalism.. Perfect and tireless in his work he has also revealed himself during a short trip to Ankara, a perfect organizer also for mobility during visits in Turkey. I can highly recommend him and still appreciate his qualities of simple and higlhy educated tour guide GIUSEPPE RAGUSA
