El mejor tour que he tomado en guruwalk, te explica todo a la perfecci├│n, Zana te hace sentir como si fueras conociendo la ciudad a lado de un amigo, probamos comida local, tomamos un caf├ę como lo hace un turco, nos trasladamos en transporte p├║blico, en el bazar de las especias nos explic├│ todo a detalle y hasta nos daban degustaciones. Habla el espa├▒ol perfectamente, y cualquier duda te la resuelve. Lo recomiendo 100%, sin duda conoces Estambul como un un Local.

It was much more better than I expected. Without this tour I would have missed lots of interesting facts about Suleyman Mosque and Gran Bazaar. Thanks for the wonderful experience.

Suzan was very friendly, knowing, informative and fun. As I was the only tourist, she took me to the places I was most interested in. Cultural Sufi Gems museum, historical places on our way, grand Church, Talata tower. We actually visited authentic restaurant and believe me, it was quite an experience, only a local could provide. My tour was so wonderful It would definitely be the highlight if my Istanbul stay.

Absolutely one of the most beautiful free walking tour. My girlfriend and I were looking for a walking tour in the Asian part of Istanbul and we got this tour without any review. The reason was that it is a new tour. Haktan, the guide, is from Turkey and he runs the tour in English. Haktan is also a wonderful, interesting and great person. He is an academic English teacher and entrepreneuren. The tour was an experiment but worked absolutely fantastic. We walked from Topkapi palace, till the Uskudar area in the Asian side. If we had more days left, we would definitely join another tour with Haktan and his crew. 100% recommend!!!!

Istanbul was a strategic location for several empires over its history, such as the Roman, Byzantine or the Ottoman. With this history, the city enjoys a rich cultural and architectural history. 


In Istanbul, the free tours take place every day, at different times of day, from the morning to the afternoon and evening so you can adapt and get to know the city at your pace. You can also choose from different tours in different languages that will take you to different monuments or neighborhoods of Istanbul. Reserving your tour is free and you can do as many tours as youÔÇÖd like while you are there. 


The gurus are reviewed by other walkers who have done their free-walking tours and their opinions are all written in an easy-to-read manner online. If you want to get to know IstanbulÔÇÖs iconic places like Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, the Hagia Sofia Cathedral, the Uskudar neighborhood, the Bosphorus of Istanbul and information about its boat rides, Galata Tower and its incredible views over the city, the Blue Mosque, the Hamam Aga Hamami, the Palace Topkapi and many more, you canÔÇÖt miss the opportunity to do one of these incredible free walking tours that will let you discover the hidden charm of this city where East meets West.
