What our travellers say

Visite culinaire à Istanbul et excursion en Cappadoce Nous avons fait 2 excursions avec TOO ISTANBUL. La 1ère à Istanbul, visite culinaire des 2 continents. Journée fort sympathique avec Noyane durant laquelle nous avons pu découvrir 2 quartiers sympathiques et déguster pleins de spécialités (ce que nous n'aurions probablement pas faits pour certaines !). Excursion privée en Cappadoce très agréable également avec un guide qui connaissait bien son sujet et qui avec lequel nous avons passé une excellente journée. En bref je recommande les yeux fermés.
Dégustations, culture et découvertes : au top ! Très belle visites, de belles découvertes et de nombreuses dégustations et avec un super accompagnateur : Emre. Super !

Visite des classiques d'Istanbul au top! Très bonne journée de visite des classiques d'Istanbul en compagnie de Gökhan qui est un guide très agréable et plein de bons conseils. Nous avons appris beaucoup de choses sur tous les endroits visités et sur l'histoire de la Turquie car son français est excellent. Le resto et le rooftop pour les pauses étaient super

Une de nos meilleures journée à Istanbul Nous avons été ravis de passer cette journée guidée par Noyane. Une de nos meilleure journée à Istanbul. La bienveillance , la bonne humeur, la découverte, les délices, les lieux typiques en dehors des zones touristiques, la belle énergie du groupe, les infos concises sur differents spots important, la disponibilité de Noyane et de l'équipe tooistanbul avant pendant après,... bref tous les aspects d'une expérience agréable et inoubliable étaient réunis. Merci . Un moment à vivre des vos premiers jours à Istanbul ! Je vous le recommande avec joie. :)
Tout simplement génial ! Nous avons fait la balade culinaire avec Elif le 11 août 2022. C'était tout simplement GENIAL ! C'est l'un des meilleurs souvenirs de notre voyage en Turquie ! Elif nous a fait découvrir Istanbul sous un autre angle, on allait de découvertes en découvertes. Elle nous a même recommandé pour notre dernière soirée un bon restaurant. C'était parfait, merci pour tout !

Istanbul autrement! Avec notre guide francophone Enis nous avons fait un voyage dans le temps à Istanbul, avons parcouru des quartiers chargés d'histoire (Fatih, Fener, Balat, Karaköy..) , visité un peu les coulisses de cette ville aux multiples visages et que les lieux typiquement touristiques ne suffisent pas à présenter. Pour cette balade d'un jour, Enis a conçu un parcours très varié, attrayant et passionnant. Nous n'avons pas vu le temps passer . Je recommande vivement ce guide à tout voyageur curieux de percer un peu mieux les mystères de cette ville fascinante!

Une très belle journée à Istanbul Très belle journée à Istanbul avec notre guide Enis dans les quartiers de Fatih, Fenner et Balat. Enis s'est montré très généreux de son temps et de ses informations, a répondu à toutes nos questions et titillé notre curiosité et ce dans un français absolument impeccable! Le circuit proposé est vraiment très intéressant, varié et nous a fait découvrir des aspects de la ville que nous ne connaissions pas. Et loin de la cohue! Nous sommes vraiment contents de cette journée Enis. Merci à lui!
Très belle balade Nous avons fait la balade « contrastes » avec mes parents et une amie Le tour est très bien conçu et permet de voir les différents facettes de la ville Notre guide Hulya a été très sympa, efficace et bienveillante . Je conseille vivement cette balade
