Private tour guide Umit

Umit O.

Istanbul, Turkey

Hi there ! My name is ''Umit''. I studied British Literature & ELT at the University of Istanbul.

I've been guiding with great enthusiasm for 24 years. I still keep my first passion of guiding each and every single day. My excitement to my country and its historical treasures kept me outstanding to my profession.

My point is to have my guests breathe the spirit of the country with its historic, cultural, archeological, traditional and local values. To hang around with me will make your visit to Turkey as memorable as possible for the rest of your life.

Lets discover Turkey together so that you could see one country, but a thousand world.

A Recent Review of this guide

Umit was fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable, personable and helpful. I would highly recommend him. He knows the Ottoman Empire and Istanbul history backwards and forwards. One of our best tours ever. We would highly recommend him.
