Compared to your typical guide who simply 'transport' you to the hot tourist spots, our tour service is unique in the sense that we will enthrall you with historical snippets at every major point of interest. As I have studied Christianity, Archaeology, history, mythology (as well as other related subjects) I can help you understand our diverse history and culture. My individual approach comes from a keen sense of reality (and humour) and aims to be friendly, informative, and entertaining, with stories and conversation to illustrate the many facets of this richly varied and fascinating country..in addition to that you will also be eating at typical Turkish restaurants serving authentic food for lunch and we will show you all the reliable places for shopping hand-made rugs,Turkish Jewellery, leather bags, jackets, ceramics, Quartz tiles, Turkish Delight, Saffron, Baklava etc. As soon as we receive a request you will be contacted within 24 hours.

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
