Get ready to meet with the hidden gems of Istanbul that only locals know about!


I will take you to Europe & Asian quarter of Istanbul where the history of Ottomans - Romans and yummy Turkish foods are laying down.

When we meet with you, we start first visiting Little Hagia Sophia Mosque then visits one of the oldest underground cistern. In the meantime you will learn about the history of Roman Empire who were ruling Istanbul.

After the cistern we will visit the Ancient Hippodrome where the horse races were organized. It's a must to see Blue Mosque as well right next to Hippodrome! We will walk through Hagia Sophia and learn more about it. Let's give a break and have some Turkish Tea and some tasty patisserie in Cigdem Pastanesi.

We keep our tour to Topkapi Palace and visit the free courtyard of Palace then move through Gülhane Park where it was used by Sultans for relaxing.

A Recent Review of this tour

Oz did a fantastic job! My daughter and I were traveling together and he was very considerate about all we personally wanted to do. He traveled out of his way to meet us in our hotel in Ortokoy, which is well outside the old city. We arranged our tour to allow us to shop and the end of the day at our leisure. Oz was well informed about all the local history and sights. We stopped when we wanted a snack or tea, the baklava was the best. I highly recommend Oz, thank you again!
