Nací en Estambul y siempre tengo pasión por explorar esta antigua ciudad. Caminar es la mejor manera de explorar una ciudad. Además, no es solo una actividad física, sino también una terapia psicológica para mí. Como persona interesada en la filosofía, podemos hablar de política, arte, historia, religión, pintura, mitología, idiomas durante nuestra caminata. Soy un muy buen oyente. También pinto por si te interesa el arte. :) Hablo inglés, turco y estoy aprendiendo italiano y árabe.

About the tour

The aim of this "walking experience" is to see Istanbul like a local. We will see Karaköy, Galata and Taksim. If you've been in European side we can go Asian side. That's why it is a customized tour. Both we will see main structures from outside and hidden/ parallel streets where daily life flows...As a local, I will take you where I go, eat, shop and drink. Every traveler is different and that's the reason every walking excursion will be customized as well. Important note: I prefer to make tour only with friends, couples or 1 person due to the Covid situation( I can take you from the place where you stay, no problem) and minumum tip is 100 turkish liras due to the circumstances. Summarily:

1.option: Karaköy/Galata/Taksim(European side)

2.option: Kadıköy(Asian side)

During our walking, we will see local bazaars, historical structures, daily life, etc.

Sabiha was a great walking guru. She was knowledgeable of the streets in Istanbul and took me to places that were not typical tourist routes. She was perfect for me- I’d rather cover grounds and get a bird’s view of the city and read up on the details of the places I visited, on my own time( as that sort of information is so readily available on the internet).

If you are the sort of guest who expects to linger and dwell and learn in depth as you go along- then, you might chose a different guide.

Sabina was very pleasant and took us to places we wouldn’t have known to go to as tourists. I would have appreciated a bit more narrative to go with the locales.
