    We discovered by chance localexperience site and we choose Hallil to guide us the second day after our arrival. What a great idea we had! He immediately felt our way of traveling and our centers of interest. We discovered Istanbul in a different way while taking care to take us in amazing places. Hallil is young and funny. He is very helpful and polite but not always on time! :) We recommend Hallil to accompany you on your Istanbul strolls. Nathalie & Jose from France

    What an amazing experience. I only had 24 hours in Istanbul and Halil made it a trip to remember! In 6 hours we saw several different parts of town and many of the most famous sites, even stopping to pick up delicious Baklava gifts for my family. Halil is fun and well informed with good English. It was easy to spend time with him. Highly recommend!

    For my last night at Istanbul I decided to make it different and booked Halil for a unique local experience. If you’re looking for a great english speaker,great photography skills,knows the most of Istanbuls hidden gems then Halil is definitely the right person.

    It was a pleasure to have Halil as our guide for 2 days. Many local spots which we never would have found our self as we did not know their existence. We had limited time, and Halil did go the extra mile to meet our expectations and requests. Michael

    Halil was our local guide for 2 days, 6 hrs each day. He payd close attention to our needs and always able to adjust as we progressed. He took us to the sites we requested but also a lot of local gems/hideaway, thanks:-) Introduced us to the street food and at all times made us feel comfortable and safe. He was sharing his knowledge and views to the benefit of my young daughters. Arranged all transport swift and easy. And to all of you globetrotting- we were never introduced to specific shop, cousins or any of these traps. Young man, honest and very polite and helpful, I wish him all the best . Michael, Denmark

    Halil took me to see exciting places and recommended Turkey's delicacies. He is a fantastic guide who takes care of guests like friends. I was able to see the rich culture of Istanbul with his different recommendations. When I come back, I will choose Halil to be my guide again.

    Getting the services of Localexperience.co had been the best decision of my entire Istanbul trip. More so when I chose Halil as my tour guide. Not only he is knowledgeable of the best Istanbul experience but also he let me avoid common tourist traps. Unlike other tour guides, he made me experience the life of a local, from parties, gathering with other travelers and even try street food. Apart from that, he is also a talented photographer: perhaps the best way to enjoy a culture-rich country while at the same time getting beautiful keepsakes of this experience through epic photos. Here's one of the pictures he took during my trip. I just wished that I had known Localexperience.co earlier on my trip, I would've hired Halil at every single day of my stay.

    Istanbul is a big city that's not easy to travel around for foreigners as most local do not speak English. But with Halil's help, we were able to travel to many different parts of the city with ease. Especially those unique places where most foreign tourists do not go. We enjoy his companionship and he certainly knows the coolest and hip places where the locals hang out. Be sure to ask Halil to take you to Kuzguncuk, it's my favourite neighboorgood with quaint cafes and shop in the Asian side. Thank you Halil! Hope to see you again in future.

    I was lucky to be joined with the young man Mr. Halil Ibrahim. He is the perfect guide and companion. We enjoyed our time together. He showed me historical parts of istanbul, local cafes and we went to a pub together. Mr. Halil is young and enthusiastic. He knows Istanbul in and out. We took the tram, metro and bus. He is able to drive you through but we opted for public transport. As he is prefessional photographer he brough his camera at no extra expenses. Mr. Halil is polite and considerate, he is sensisitve and aware of his limits. He communicates well in English. It waz a pity i could not have more time with him as i got busy with my schedule. I whole heartedly recommends Mr.Halil and if i come to Istanbul he will be my number 1 choice
