Recommendation for Guides in Athens & Istanbul

I am looking for recommendations for guides in Istanbul and Athens. I know they can both be done by reading and researching but prefer to hire guides for a portion of our days.
Thank you for your assistance with this.

Try contacting Fest Travel for Istanbul. They are known to be very good. They may also suggest some one iwith their status for Athens.

My parents were in Athens three years ago. They bought a tour through Firebirdstours and loved it so much. So, as for Athens, I highly recommend you to visit Acropolis.

I can't recommend an English speaking guide for Istanbul but I certainly would recommend getting one. Istanbul is vibrant, busy, complicated and best seen with someone explaining the sites, the history and life as it is now.

I can strongly recommend licensed tour guide, Mehmet Tetik, for Istanbul. Two friends and I hired him for two days in Istanbul in 2015 and he was professional, extremely knowledgeable, and presented a terrific itinerary. I remember that he wasn't interested in shopping. You can reach him at Mehmet Tetik, Licensed Guide in Turkey , mobile and whatsapp: +90 532 612 0113 . He also gave terrific recommendations for tour guides for Cappadocia and Ephesus, and made the arrangements for us.

For Athens, I can recommend Evanthia K. She was the tour leader for a tour I took in 2017. Again, very knowledgeable and engaging, and has a strong network of licensed tour guides. You can reach her via whatsapp at +30 694 6007695.
