About the Tour

Our tour will start with a visit to iconic places and we will continue with interesting stories from the history of Istanbul with a very funny and interesting conversation.

"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone."
So let's finish with our comfort zone!



Our travel plan  

We will start the day with the Roman / Byzantine Hippodrome , where chariot races were organized by Romans and Byzantines. The Blue Mosque and its surroundings will be our next place to visit. Next, we will see the German font (a gift from Kaiser Wilhelm II).
Later we will visit Hagia Sophia - The Church of Divine Wisdom. To finish our trip I will take you to Topkapi Palace. This will be the best place to understand Ottoman culture and history.
We will enjoy and take photos together!

Our meeting point is Sultanahmet Square. I hope you are ready to turn Istanbul upside down.

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: I'll be by the green-roofed fountain (German fountain)

Absolute Stellar tour with Can - he was extremely knowledgeable and answered to all our questions in regards to history, referenced it with examples, and made the excursion worth it! English is excellent, brings his stories and knowledge with great passion! :) I will definitely do this again for other tours with him :)

10/10! Remarkable tour with an excellent tour guide! Can is friendly, flexible (appreciate it!), highly motivated and genuinely willing to help. It was easy to communicate and the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. The tour was informative and educational as well as interesting and inspiring. Can happily answered all of our questions - from turkish history and culture to modern day life. I'll definitely be back!
