Safiye K.

Istanbul, Turkey

MERHABA!! (Hello in Turkish) This is Safiye. I am a licensed professional Private tour guide in Istanbul who offers private tours all around Istanbul.

I graduated from Travel Management and Tourist Guiding Department at the University of Adnan Menderes. I gave an exam to be licensed tour guide which was arranged by Ministry of Tourism. I had an internship to finish my school, I have traveled each part of Turkey during 40 days and visit almost all the historical monuments and sites.

I can organize cultural, historical, shopping, walking and photography tours. My tour is mostly walking tours and I believe that when you walk and use public transport, you explore and see real life more. I can also arrange tours by vehicle.

I am an experienced tour guide and working with ToursbyLocals more than 6 years. I arranged numerous tours and still arranging many tours for my guests. We discover Istanbul together. They are living a unique Istanbul experience with me. They are tasting real local life and Turkish food and desserts, tea, hookah, Turkish Caffe, Turkish Bath is a real threat.

I am very patient, friendly and sympathetic.

I am trying to do my best for my guests and they are having a great time in Istanbul.

If you want to be one of my guests, you are always welcome and see Turkish Hospitality.

A Recent Review of this guide

Safiye is a phenomenal tour guide. She took us to some of the best attractions in Istanbul. Not only this, she also met us at airport and made the transfer to our hotel seamless. When I return to Istanbul later this year with my family, I will definitely book another tour with her!
