Istanbul Tour Guide - Yasin K.

Merhaba (Hello) from a friendly Istanbulite! My name is Yasin, a licenced tour guide who is in love with his city. Istanbul is more than a regular city. It has been a melting pot of different empires, religions, languages and cultures for centuries! I've been living in this amazing city for 36 years and have about 8 years of experience as a guide. My purpose is not only to show you some historical buildings but also give you a chance to learn more about our unique history, culture-traditions, cuisine, daily life etc. I am very interested in both Roman/Eastern Roman (Byzantine) and Ottoman heritage of Istanbul, so I can offer you very specific tours that you'll always remember. I have basic information on the old/medieval Greek and can read the Ottoman Turkish. I can also understand caligraphic inscriptions easily. I believe that if you really want to feel the soul of historical buildings, you should know what those inscriptions explain to us. That's why I spent so much time to improve myself in this field. I also love photography and trying different types of healthy and traditional food. Fortunately, Istanbul gives us a great chance for them. I'll be so happy to help you with them, too! Feel free to contact me for either a full-day or a half-day tour. I can provide you a complete program or customizable itinerary. Let's explore this amazing city and unique culture together!

Istanbul Tour Guide - Uğur K.

Uğur K.


Hello, I am Uğur. After graduating from the Faculty of Economics at the university, I started working in tourism. Then one day I realized that guidance would make me more enjoy and self-actualization. Because I was hungry for history, I was hungry for knowledge, my curiosity was high. I developed myself in this field and became a tour guide professionally by taking the official trainings we need to take. Here I was in the field that I was looking for and made me happy. When I first started working in the field, I was very excited, I made simple mistakes out of excitement, but they all tasted good, maybe it is these pleasant mistakes that still give the local flavor to the tours I do. Even though I travel and tell the same places with different people from all over the world, the feeling of traveling to the same places with different friends or different places with the same friends never goes away. Sharing my knowledge and empathizing with people makes me feel happy. I have friends from all over the world and this is the best part of this job. I love my job, I love history, I love people... Recently, I have been working as a mediator in order to make social use of the experience I have gained in this field and try to make a positive impact on the society I live in.                                                                                                                                 

Istanbul Tour Guide - Doğan M.

There is a saying in the Middle East called "hello". If you look in the dictionary; It will translate as "hello" but the real meaning of this word is "you will find friendship here, feel comfortable". Merhaba, I'm Dogan. I am 27 years old, I have a degree in both international relations and international trade, a master's degree in guidance, and I am currently an art history student. I have been a student for many years and my area of expertise is having a pleasant time with a low budget - just like students.

History based City Tour

4 hours 30 min

Istanbul personalized tour

It was great considering the short, short time. He showed me all the tourist places in Istanbul, at least the important ones due to time limitation. The Topkaki Palace was already closed by then so I did not get to see it. But got to see the beautiful mosques not only the Hagia. He is very knowledgeable of the history of, and proud of his city - Istanbul. Would have been great if this was a whole day tour, but time limitations due to flight arrivals late in the afternoon prevented that. Anyways, try him, you will not regret it. Thanks

Very enjoyable tour

It was great fun to walk the basic course of Istanbul with Dilek. She was very cheerful and kind. In addition, she seemed to be friends with many guides in the city, so I was able to walk very efficiently while obtaining the latest information on congestion and other things from them.

Great tour

Excellent guide. Quite pleasant and very informative. Really good way for someone with a mobility issue to see the city. Rather than me having to keep up with a ship’s tour, she was able to adapt to my slow speed.

Kevin S.

Thank you very much Kevin. I really enjoyed guiding for you and Mary and I'm hoping to see you again some day. Please take care and stay well
