  • Excellent experience! Latif, guide and owner of the company, arranged everything perfectly for my evening layover in Istanbul. It started with a luxurious black car ride from the airport to Old Town where he was waiting to greet me. From there we wandered into the Spice Market, onto the ferry to cross into the Asian side of the city then back to head toward Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. I had very little time to do everything but Latif made it extra special. We said our goodbyes as I jumped back into my black car and headed back to the airport (all included in the tour). He was amazing and I'd highly recommend him and Istanbul Layover Tours to everyone.
  • We pre-booked a four hour morning tour, starting at 07:00. We were met by energetic young men at Istanbul Atatürk Airport, who put us on a very clean and tidy 12 seater bus to town. Özgürs arranged a traditional breakfast for us, even though he was fasting for Ramadan. From there on ... magic. Özgürs introduced us to Turkish heritage. Excellent tour. Thanks!!
  • This layover tour was just incredible, we had the evening tour and it was just amazing. Latif was beyond knowledgeable and had so much to offer about Istanbul. We did the the walk around the bazaar, spice market, did the ferry, did the Turkish bath, ate delicious food, visited the Hagia Sophia, and the Blue Mosque and back to the airport with plenty of time for our connecting flight to Egypt. Totally recommend Latif he was a joy to be with!!! Thank you Latif for making this tour unforgettable for my father and I!
  • We LOVED our tour with Istanbul Layover Tours. We had an 8 hour layover, getting in to IST in the evening. Latif met us just outside of the Arrivals wing and we quickly jumped into his van, speeding off to the Old City. He was a FANTASTIC guide, we went all over the city, Grand Bazaar, Spice Market, Asian side, new city/old city. We didn't just rush through it all, Latif provided an amazing explanation of the site's historical, societal and religious significance. It wasn't just history though, it was the FOOD! Latif introduced us to wonderful little bites to eat, along each site, everything from cheese, to mussels, to Turkish burritos. It was NOTHING that we could have done on our own, worth every penny
  • It was a great experience in a short layover in Istanbul. Cant wait to come back. Thanks Latif
