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.

Tour description

U should consider

"The tour must have a minimum of 5 participants"

Hi everyone! Welcome to Old City! I offer an entertaining experience while learning about the ancient city of Istanbul, which was the capital of three great empires.

We are going to Karaköy and Galata region to visit the most beautiful streets of Istanbul.
First of all, we will meet in Karaköy Pier.
Then we will walk through Mumhane District ( churches, Umbrella Street, bars, pubs, street food)

After that, we will walk to the Galata Tower and u will be informed.
Our next stop is Legendly İstiklal Street with many Passages decorated with architectural masterpieces.. ( Avrupa Passage, Flower Passage, Narmanlı Han)
Consulates of many countries are located on this street, we will see them.

Lastly, we will go to visit the San Antuan Catholic Church, after learning about this place, our tour ends in the courtyard of the church. We say goodbye to seeing you on other tours. 😊 ✌️🍀

Great tour, especially if you are looking for something not too long. It was the perfect way to end a Saturday.

Genuinely great guy. Knows his stuff and will show you places you would not be able to find otherwise. He showed us quite corners in the middle of crowded chaotic streets. So many gems! I would recommend him to anyone who wants to have a relaxed time while seeing the real Istanbul.

It was a lovely tour. Husseyn took us through the nice streets and passageways which I would have missed. He is quite knowledgeable about the area and answered our questions about fun places to hang out, shopping, a bit of history etc. It was a relaxed walk around the Galata tower area. I couldn't join his Asian side tour this time. But will try that too. I highly recommend his tour.

Hüseyin is a lovely guy and you will find out all the best places to eat food and buy anything you want at good prices. He will also show you the best places for drinks and dancing. Do this your early in your holiday and also go on his Asian-side tour which is more relaxed.

Huseyn went above and beyond! He showed us some good placds during the tour, and also helped us after. Always willing to also help other visitors to Istanbul, who were not affiliated with his tour.
