Fascinating multi cultural history experience

This tour is a must do experience for those looking to explore a the multi-cultural side of Istanbul. Our guide Erol was a literal treasure trove of fascinating stories about the history of the Christian / Jewish / european populations and the unique ways they interacted with the Turks after the fall of Constantinople in 1453.

Make sure to try to borek at the bakery!

Super illuminating afternoon walking tour

Erol is the best tour guide I’ve had in Istanbul! My fiance and I learned so much about the history of Istanbul and the Ottoman Empire, and also got some personal and current details about life in Istanbul that really helped us understand the culture. Balat is also probably my favorite neighborhood that we explored this time in Istanbul. Despite freezing weather and rain, Erol made the afternoon such a treat!

So many colors

This was the best tour we’ve been on! We got a personalized tour of some off the beaten path neighborhoods in Istanbul. It would have been hard to find these areas on our own. We absolutely loved our tour guide, Gamze and will always think of her as our beautiful Turkish friend. She was so informative and flexible with our family’s needs. We felt like we were walking around with one of our friends.

Beautiful picturesque adventure

We had a wonderful afternoon with our amazing guide, Can (John). We felt very lucky as our family were the only one’s booked in for the afternoon so we had our very own tailred adventure. We started by exploring the Galata tower area then took the ferry across to Fenner and Ballat a very architecturally colourful area. We took lunch at a local restaurant and saw the Iron Church. Can then saw us safely back to our hotel as the weather cancelled our afternoon ferry. Thankyou to our amazing guide who gave us a wonderful experience in Istanbul.
