Private tour guide Cem

Cem B.

Istanbul, Turkey

Now that you are reading my info, you are very close to discover Istanbul.

Visiting Istanbul with me, you will not only see the main attractions but you will also become acquainted with the history, the culture and the daily life style of this extraordinary city.

Being a historian guide, I offer you the opportunity to grab unique historical information about the intriguing and glorious past of the city. Having grown up in the old city makes me the right choice to discover its most authentic side.

For those who like sports, I arrange several bike tours which will enable you to see a lot in a short time and get a closer look at the most traditional neighbourhoods of Istanbul.
At the end of an enjoyable and adventurous day, you can reward yourself with a Turkish Bath and a foam massage. If you should still have enough energy, it will be high time for Istanbul's nightlife!

Sono una guida professionista con una lunga esperienza nel campo. Sono nato e cresciuto e vivo tuttora nella parte storica della città di Istanbul (l'antica Costantinopoli). Sarò lieto di condurvi alla scoperta della mia splendida città e della cultura e delle tradizioni del mio Paese. Partecipando ad uno dei miei tour non imparerete solo nozioni enciclopediche sui monumenti e la storia della città ma avrete anche la possibilità di visitare I quartieri più caratteristici dove si svolge la vita quotidiana degli abitanti.
Al termine di una giornata divertente ed eccitante potrete concedervi la giusta ricompensa di un rilassante bagno turco. E se avrete ancora abbastanza energia, la palpitante notte di Istanbul vi aspetta. . .
