Byzantium, Constantinople, Stamboul, Istanbul… It may seem like this city has had a bit of an identity crisis, but when you’ve lived for 2,500 years, you’re bound to go through a few reincarnations. Yet, no matter what name this bi-continental city has taken, its ability to dazzle has remained the same. From the exotic Spice Bazaar to incredible skylines dotted with minarets to the breathtaking Bosphorus, it’s no wonder Istanbul enchants all who visit. And while you’ll have no trouble finding plenty of nooks and crannies to explore, we recommend checking out the local scene with an Istanbul city tour.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our many questions and provided excellent insight into Turkish history.
Great guide, very knowledgeable
Jen was a great guide and so was the gentleman who met us at the centre (I'm so sorry I can't remember his name). Both were very open and it was great to be able to ask questions and gain insight into the project as well as life and culture in Turkey. The food was absolutely delicious. We were shown clothing, earrings and bags that the women make to sell however there was no pressure to buy (although I think we all did as the prices were reasonable and the products were lovely and unique).
Burak is an excellent guide. His knowledge of Turkish history and culture is phenomenal (besides he Is a really nice guy :) ) I am a tourguide
myself and I enjoyed talking shop with Burat and learning about the work of our profession in Turkey. I highly recommend the tour.
