Istanbul, Turkey

MERHABA!! (Hello in Turkish) If you are here, on this page, probably you are considering a trip to Istanbul, Thanks for choosing Istanbul as your next destination.

You will experience great Turkish hospitality, taste delicious Turkish food and learn deep history and culture, you are in a right place :)

I am Safiye and joined Toursbylocals in 2010 since then I am delivering private tour to eager travelers from all around the world. I am a happy guide and who adores her job. I do organize any kind of tour and I custom tours according to travelers needs. The unique thing about Tourbylocals is, you can get a local guide in every city and feel like a local, learn the history and culture, visit hidden gems, try authentic local food, experience real life and use public transportation.
I do arrange shore excursion tours and layover tours as well. I arrange a private vehicle and driver if clients request.

Istanbul is a great city with a lot of history and culture, it is a very vibrant city with a lot of life. Istanbul is a crossroad between two continents ( Asia and Europe) It is the only city in the world that you can experience having breakfast in Europe and take a ferry to Asia and have lunch there. You can change continents in 20 minutes.

I hope our paths cross one day through Tourbylocals, I feel lucky myself to guide you and help you for a lifetime Istanbul experiences and unforgettable memories.
