Private Tour Of Galata Bridge, Galata Tower, Istiklal Street, Beyoglu

One of the best high lights of Istanbul is Beyoglu district. The area of Beyoglu, including famous Taksim Square, Galata Tower and Istiklal Street (Caddesi), is the heart of the city. With shopping, nightclubs, bars, restaurants and museums galore, it is easy to spend days in this district alone. All turkish people go to Istiklal in the evening for cinema, theater, concert. We can start our tour near spice market, around the spice market we can see the leeches that turkish people still use for medical treatment, stolls that sells stomack, head, tongue of animals.

A Recent Review of this tour

Dilek gives you a fresh and delightful taste of the life of those who call Istanbul their home. We loved her insights regarding their culture, the walks, the food and the pace of the tour. We just had a layover and felt that Dilek found a way to maximize the time without making us feel in a rush. Perfect balance!. Her English is wonderful and her peaceful and kind presence a great asset. Thank you Dilek! You're awesome! A+
