Default Guide-driver in Istanbul??

Has anyone used the services of a tour company called Turfantastik in Istanbul?
If so, how would you rate them?
Can anyone recommend a private tour company in Istanbul ?
There doesn't seem to be much info out there for tour guides in Instanbul. HELP !
Thanks

Default Istanbul & Ephesus

I have just researched tours from EKOL and Meander Travel for both Istanbul and Ephesus. Both are well recommended from past Med cruisers.

Bon Voyage

We used Sammy's Travel in Istanbul and Ephesus and they get great reviews from me. They were very efficient, had clean vehicles, good drivers, and knowledgable and friendly guides. I would recommend Sammy's Travel to anybody visiting Turkey. Memed gave me quick and promt answers while I was planing either my Istanbul or Kusadasi trips.

Thanks blackberrygirl. I just received a response from Mehmet of Sammy's Travel. His options sound very good for both ports. So many choices and decisions to make. I know we can't do it all especially with a very busy port intensive itinerary. I really appreciate your vote of confidence in this tour guide.
