I have been passionate about traveling and discovering new places since childhood. After my highschool years, i got used to the peace of being in nature by hitchhiking and camping. I especially enjoy building international friendships and then I decided to become a Professional Tour guide. As a person who was born and raised in Istanbul, I would be happy to show you around.

Asian side tours less historical more about local life, showing around and tasting some street foods.

 Are you ready for a professional guide to tell you about little-known stories and local life on the Asian (Anatolian) side?

Dear guests, welcome to Istanbul! First of all, we will meet at the main entrance of the Eminönü - Üsküdar Ferry Pier'' and take a unique ferry ride from the Historic Peninsula to Üsküdar which is known as a Balcony of İstanbul.

There will be information about the Maiden's Tower, which has become the symbol of Üsküdar. We will walk to visit and photograph the Valide-i Cedid Mosque ( Queen Sultan), which is almost a marble paradise, and walk through the Historical Bazaar of Üsküdar
 
We go to Beylerbeyi Palace, the most beautiful palace on the Anatolian side. I'll buy garden tickets for everyone and after a brief information in the garden, we take a photo/toilet break.

then after leaving the palace we will take another bus to the Kuzguncuk, it's an old historic Jewish Quarter with colorful houses then we will visit the Kuzguncuk public orchard and photograph the colorful houses. that will be ending point for the tour. U will be informed about all transportations.:) See you in other tours ✌️


 Keep in mind:
 Ferry tickets are 25+30 = 55
 Bus tickets are   20x2 = 40 TL

Huseyn was interesting and he showed parts of Istanbul which was amazing. He gave us so much information about history of Istanbul, and also about present life in Istanbul. The guide was professional, and we lowed it.

The tour was wonderful and the guide was excellent I would recommend cutting out the mosque (mosques out) and add more time in the Jewish quarter and highly recommend ending tour in Kadakoy

Hüseyin nos hizo un tour muy completo por diferentes puntos de la parte Asiática de la ciudad, lejos de las zonas más turísticas, explicándonos detalles históricos, y sobre la vida cotidiana actual de los vecinos de Estambul. Muy recomendable, ya que algunos lugares no los hubieramos visitado de otro modo.

Hüseyin es un guía encantador, tranquilo y con mucha paciencia. Me encantó descubrir la parte de Kuzguntuk, y ver un poco más de la vida de los turcos, fuera de la zona de Sultanhamet. Fue una experiencia muy agradable!
