We recommend you to join a guided tour in Istanbul. Here is why?

This tour is the best option to visit the most important historic sites in Istanbul on a local guided tour in a day time only. The tour provides complimentary pick up from the city center hotels or cruise port to provide a no-stress meeting with the guide.  The tour guide is a local expert on history and architecture with a university degree. The tour guide also speaks fluent English and friendly with senior people, families with children and photograph lovers. Please note that making a cultural tour with a local expert tour guide will provide you to learn more about the visited places, local life, the folklore and the street food that you can hardly find in the books. You can easily ask your questions if you would have any and get a clear informative reply. All these will come to you with a respectful humour, making your day different than a lesson or speech. Maybe the best feature of our guided tour is having the tickets in advance to provide you a priority at the entrances without waiting at long ticket kiosks. Moreover, your guide is quite experienced to arrange the tour route to avoid crowds, giving you time for taking a photo or a drink on your way. He also knows what to do in case of any safety problem and keep you away out of the risky areas. 

 

A final benefit of guided tour is meeting with new people on the tour and having good time with them. We have many guests met on our tours and established very good friendships. This is free of charge service provided for only a smiling face :)

 

The tour is convenient for people without any walking disabilities from any age groups. 

There will be short stops on your way at certain times to rest your legs, toilet break or have a drink. 

The guides give extra stops for senior people or children without annoying the others.

The tour is available for walkers and baby strollers, but not suitable for wheelchairs. 

The tour is operated all-year-round regardless of sun, rain or snow since the guides are very experienced for the best routes and timings on visits. 

We recommend you to wear clothes appropriate with the weather, comfortable shoes, drinking water, sun glasses and have sunscreen lotion with you.

 

Important Notice!!!

- Any kind of serious walking disability, 

- 2 or more small children with you who might disable you to follow the tour schedule and slow down the pace of the group,
