What can be better than friendly smile at airport or walking with local friend all day long dipped in a historical & social stories…

Though we grow up and our perceptions get changed, our basic habits and expectations remains same… Since my childhood I love people, talking & walking… After busy day at the office, my type of relaxation is walking from Beşiktaş to Karakoy… I walk parallel to Bosphorus, pass front of Dolmabahçe Palace where the Father of Turkish Republic took off his eternal journey… Then Dolmabahçe Mosque with its delicate futures and Nusretiye Mosque with its thinnest minarets and new posh streets of Karakoy spiced with different types of cafés and restaurants as well as design shops…

If you are visiting Istanbul and need a local touched, extremely flexible tour that will nurture your soul with great stories, you are at the right address… I can turn the stone edifices into breathing, colourful entities. We will dive into deep history while eating some delicious street foods or watching the great views of Istanbul…

PROS:

  • I am extremely sincere and you will not feel “alien” around me…
  • I have good knowledge about our history plus our superstitions, spiritual world, foods and of course historical gossips…
  • I am a tour program generator that during the day I can change our program and route as we wish…
  • I am a natural story-teller that I have many stories for share…
  • I have good sense of humor and even I have killer smile, I am humble and very down to earth…

CONS:

  • I don’t like being formal, even I act like sometimes with the help of suits & ties, I am still the same nuts inside…
  • I can be addictive. But at least I am not harmful like drugs and cigarettes and I smell perfect…
  • If you show your interest about Turkish Food or mythology etc. I can speak forever. You can either pray for to see the day lights again or just tell me to “lets have a break”…
  • I walk a lot and big probably I will drag you one place to the other…
