We went to this agency based on the recommendation from the hotel we were staying at, and since the hotel has such great reviews we trusted them (big mistake). We booked our tours in cappadocia from Istanbul (big mistake, wait until you reach your destination to book your tours). They over charged us so much, we called them when we... More

Özge was fantastic! She arranged a customized trip to Cappadocia and southern Turkey that went exactly where we wanted to go (unlike some other agents, she was able to get us to Gobekli Tepe). She put us in some wonderful hotels and even managed a last minute change in our plane schedule. Everything went very smoothly (the balloon ride was... More

Booked a 10-day 3-city trip (Istanbul-Capadoccia-Kusadasi) with Walkabout tours and experienced only professionalism throughout. Got my itineraries prepared in detail and emailed to me before travelling, pick-ups and tours were exactly on time, especially loved the Sura Design hotel we were booked into in Istanbul, guides spoke fluent English, but above all, I loved corresponding with and getting to meet...

have booked about 6 or 7 trips through oezge. shes the best. make sure to book a trip to cappadocia (make sure to book the ballon as well). save yourself the time and let oezge arrange everything for you. there is a bunch of shaddy agencies around the sultanahmet area, walkabout isnt one of them. martin.

We spent two weeks in turkey and had plans to visit Capadoccia. Ozge helped us finding an appropriate flight and hotel that perfectly fitted in our intinerary as independent travelers. Every service provided (hotel, transportation, tours) was top class. Highly recommended for any type of traveler. Thank you very much!

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
