Exploring Istanbul from a local's eyes.

This tour will be a walking tour. Istanbul has a pretty good transportation system.
Sometimes we will take tram, sometimes bus, sometimes ferry and sometimes we will walk. Don't forget the best way to exploring a new city is using public transits and walking. After a moment that you start to feel like a local. My goal is to show you my city with local perspective. We will buy Istanbulcard for each of you then started to explore Istanbul.

A Recent Review of this tour

Safiye was an exceptional guide. She had the knowledge and experience which she shared with us throughout the tour. She is very lovely, friendly and flexible person. Se made us feel like home and bend over backwards if needed. The tenacity, excitement & support she has shown is applaudable. I will highly recommend her as a guide. I must say we have found a friend in Istanbul. This city is very lively and Safiye will be one more reason to come and visit.
