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)

I had a fantastic time on my tour with Can. He's very personable and managed to explain all the cutural, historical and architectural aspects in an interesting way. I found it very easy to follow him. He's got great knowledge of the things he talks about and took his time to answer all of my questions thoroughly. I also really liked the layout of the tour :) I'd definitely book another tour with him!

Can was an extremely good guide, he knew a lot about the sights and was super personable. Also speaks fluent English, can speak a few other languages ​​and therefore makes a really great extensive tour. Can is a trained tourist guide and has a great interest in history and you can tell how enthusiastically he presents his sights. He adapted exactly to my needs, showed me great sights and also helped to get something good to eat. I would also spend time privately with Can at any time and would immediately ask him about a tour again via WhatsApp when I am in Istanbul.

Can was very punctual, adjusted the route per our request and in a way that would not result in waiting outside of Blue Mosque and told everything about the historical center! I really enjoyed the tour and would recommend it.
