Istanbul Private Tour Guide
Hello, Explorer of Istanbul! My name is Serhat and I have been working as a private tour guide in Istanbul for over ten years.
Istanbul’s Unique History: The Capital of Three Great Empires
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.

In addition to these famous spots, there are many secret jewels to see as well. Especially Fener-Balat, Karakoy-Galata and Ortakoy-Bebek neighborhoods are rising stars of the city. There has been an increasing attention for these spots for the last couple of years. They are very nice areas to walk around and talk about some Byzantine and Ottoman history of the city.
