Haktan

Hi, my name is Haktan. I am a licenced tour guide who is in love with Istanbul!

I traveled to 30+ countries joining free walking tours whenever I had a chance and collecting the good practices of other guides. I studied in the USA and taught at different universities so I know how to keep people's attention when I tell the incredible stories of this amazing city.

If you read the reviews about my tours you'll see the word "funny" in almost every review. I don't want to brag about humour but let me tell you this much I once made a group of Polish people laugh 😎.

Last but not the least, The Guardian published an article about my tours.

I use audio headsets during my tours so you won't miss anything even when we are walking and talking.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Haktan was as entertaining as he promised - we had a lot of laughs. He’s also very informative and he gave us headsets so we could all hear his comments. The only thing I didn’t really like was being left to our own devices on the Asian side of Istanbul. We felt somewhat abandoned and had to get a maintenance worker to help us buy tickets for the ferry back. Turns out we could have just tapped our credit card at the turnstile but Haktan didn’t tell us that. I think I’d more recommend taking a tour on the European side without the ferry.

Wonderful way to learn and see the interesting points of interest. I always do a walking tour to get the real feel of the history and culture of the city. Great historic information
