Istanbul With A Local
My personal/private tours are generally based on real/local life experiences. Rather than learning or listening to culture I’d like to offer touching and feeling the culture. You can find history or cultıure in the books too but the culture is not like in the books.
Depending on the request I organize the longer trips in the country. Turkey offers you big variety of the culture city to city.
-Istanbul With A Local-
Constantinople and Istanbul — two names for one city, capital of the mighty Byzantine and Ottoman empires, a city where East meets West, astride two continents, Europe and Asia. Its shores are lapped by the Sea of Marmara, the Golden Horn and the Bosphorus, and its monuments are ranged over seven hills. Minarets and domes dominate the famous skyline and a stroll through the streets reveals the city’s diverse and magnificent heritage. Hagia Sophia, great cathedral of Byzantium, with magnificent marbles and mosaics vies with Ottoman mosques clad in beautiful Iznik tiles, the Topkapı palace, luxurious residence of the sultans, elegant fountains, bathhouses and bustling covered markets. Every visit to Istanbul is a pleasure, for it is one of the most fascinating cities in the world.
