Hello, Explorer of Istanbul! My name is Serhat and I have been working as a professional tour guide in Istanbul for over ten years.
Istanbul is a city with a history of 2650 years, carrying the heritage of Greeks, Romans, Byzantines and Ottomans and having served as the capital for these civilizations. Throughout the history, it has been an important trade harbor and gateway of Silk Road to Europe.
Istanbul is also a city founded over two continents and millions of Istanbul citizens travel to the other continent every day while going to work. Acting as a bridge between Asia and Europe, the city embodies a unique hybrid culture.
As a person who regards being born and living in this city as a blessing, I am striving for becoming an expert of the city’s history and culture and it is lucky for me that my job is analogous with my goal.
You can join me to find hidden flavor stops, enjoy panoramic views and discover the details of local life in Istanbul.
Centers of attraction in the city are Sultanahmet area where Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapı Palace are located and Beyoğlu area where Istiklal Avenue and Galata Tower are located. In addition to these famous spots, there are many secret jewels to see as well. You can join my tours to discover those places.
