Cost of tour guide in Istanbul?

Several messages have recommended hiring an individual tour guide in Istanbul. Can you tell me the approximate cost and what was included?

Thank you.

Message: The English speaking tour guide that I have used several times is Ali Yalniz. His email address is [email protected] and
his web address cannot recommend him highly enough. We were there March 2002 and going again in March 2003.

Message: I just returned from Turkey this past Saturday. We used Suleyman Tirasoglu as our guide. He and his (American) wife have their own little company called InSight Travel. He was good but he smokes if that bothers you (it does me) although he's fairly considerate about it. His card has an email address of [email protected] He also provided a van and driver which was hugely helpful.

His name was Levant and he was TERRIFIC. We stayed at a small hotel in the Sultanahmet area called the Allstar Acura. Perfect location small rooms (cruiseship cabin size). Paid $67/nite inc breakfast from

Dear Phyllis,

It depends on the tour guide. If they are really good knowladge of Turkey they coast you $200 a day. Some others may charge you $100 a day. If you want to get more information go to this is the web page of United Guide of Turkey. You may not find an English web page but If you click "HIZLI REHBER ARAMA" on the right-top of the page that link you to the page that you can search the guide. or you can write to:
[email protected] and write to Serif Yenen the President of IRO (The Commerce of Istanbul Guide) I am sure they will find guide for you.
I hope this helps your trip in Turkey
