Discover the secrets of Trabzon with a knowledgeable local guide.

Inside the city walls is the old center of Trabzon resembling to a table that was 'Trapezus' in Greek language, the oldest name of Trabzon. The table like old center is between two little valleys passed by old bridges. And we reach Fatih Mosque that had been the central church before Turkish conquest, where the coronation of Greek Komnenos kings took place.
Outside the walls on the shore is Hagia Sophia Museum, the last St. Sophia having late Byzantinian architecture.
Then we go uptown to see Ataturk Villa which had been the residence of a Greek banker and hosted Ataturk during his comings to Trabzon.

A Recent Review of this tour

We spent a fabulous day with Arif. He is very knowledgeable and obviously enjoyed showing us the sights. We especially enjoyed the Hagia Sophia with its frescoes. He showed us a special school of sorts which trains women in marketable skills in artistic projects. We are enjoying our purchases from there. We really enjoyed the anchovy lunch, a surprising taste treat!
