Istanbul tour guides can enhance your travel with their thorough knowledge of Istanbul. I believe it is quite possible to enjoy and discover Istanbul with your own efforts.
And Istanbul is not a place that you need a guide with you all the time. Actually Istanbul is best discovered on your own.
Having a private tour guide with you for 1 or 2 days can really enhance your Istanbul experience, because a tour guide will be able to fill you in with unique information whenever you need it.
You can choose to have a guide for 1 or 2 days or during your entire trip. It all depends on how you travel and what are your specific needs.
Keep in mind that;
Tour guides are professionals that expect to be paid for their services.
And this includes the pre-planning phase too. So don’t be surprised if they ask for payment before they answer your questions and they plan your trip.
