a la carte walking tour : old town, new town, asiatic Istanbul, hippodrome, blue mosque, your private roman cistern


After 26 years of official guiding, as of 2014 I am stopping to do the regular museum tours, and focus on my unconventional Istanbul experience tours only. I believe this provides a better exposure and more fun experience of Istanbul. Other TBL guides are at your disposal for the regular museum tours.

Major monuments of the old town Istanbul from Byzantine and Ottoman Empire periods .
Blue Mosque, your private roman cistern, Hippodrome, Grand Bazaar.

(Every now and then I will also offer to show few photos, reconstruction pictures and short videos of the places we will be visiting: This helps to visualize what it used to look like, inc. 2 min. Bond movie footage 'From Russia with Love' : I realize this makes it more fun for kids as well as adults)

If you book two full day tours - with one day including transportation , this tour above can be paced by dividing some of the walking ( and standing load ) to the second day.
