Vad du kommer att göra

This experience will change the way you viewed Istanbul, as it brought a sense of familiarity and makes you feel like at home.

Having breakfast is a great opportunity to start a day in Besiktas, we start our tour with a local breakfast.

We will head to our second spot named Ortakoy by walking through one of the best walking ways in Istanbul. On the way to Ortakoy, Ciragan Palace will be shown from outside by telling traditional wedding rituals and learning late Ottoman architecture. At the end of 20 minutes walk, one of the most iconic landscapes of the city will be watched by the view of Bosphorus Bridge, Ortakoy Mosque and Asian Side.

Then we get a local bus to the Arnavutkoy neighborhood which is pointed as one of the coolest 40 neighborhoods in the world by Time Out magazine. Walking through the colorful and modern houses by taking Instagrammable photos, feel the atmosphere that you can't find out visiting the tourist sites of Istanbul.

At the end of the tour, we take a ferry from Arnavutkoy pier to Besiktas or a taxi. Transportation type can change according to the ending time of the tour.

PS: This tour will be guided by licensed guide Cengiz. Transportation and breakfast are not included to the tour price.

Hi all,

Some of my favorite things are cooking, photography, exploring unseen places. That’s why you can ask me to take a photo of you anytime and anywhere.

Making new friends all around the world and sharing experiences is always gratifying me. Happy to give a local touch to your Turkey vacation.

This tour was amazing. This is my third time in istanbul but this tour was different. We visited so many places and between hidden Neighbourhood and alleys. The areas were magical. Cengiz was a great tour guide and he explained everything perfectly. He shared so many stories and history behind some building we came across. I personally recommend this tour so much because it simply covers what you need to know about Istanbul from a local’s perspective.

Cengiz’s tour was amazing. He took us to an off beaten path to see local, authentic spots. He is very knowledgeable and it was like strolling through the city catching up with an old friend. He was very accommodating to our interests and catered the walk to our liking. I would highly recommend booking a tour with him if you are in Istanbul or which ever other cities he tours. His recommendations for restaurants and hammams were superb. He goes above and beyond for his clients. Definitely book with him!

This was my second experience with Cengiz. He really made us felt like a long lost friend during the trip. He is knowledgeable in the places and had brought us to many beautiful and non-touristic places. He also shared lotsa perspectives about things in the country. We engaged like closed friends and i am so glad to make new friends during this trip. I would strongly recommend anyone who wish to explore non-main stream places in Istanbul. This would be the experience you should try :) Thanks again

This is one of the highlights of my trip in Istanbul. Chengiz is not only knowledgeable, but he is so friendly and engaging that you will feel comfortable the first second you are in the tour. The places he brought us through are really worthwhile to visit; and Chengiz has a vast information on each of them. Plus point; he takes good portraits for you too 😂 Highly recommended!

Such a fun day with Cengiz & loved the intimate, small group. If we had gone to these neighborhoods/places ourselves and without a guide, we never would have truly learned the details/intricacies of what we were seeing and how people live in these parts of Istanbul. Cengiz was definitely an expert guide and knew how to answer every question we asked about Istanbul and Turkey. He also had many many great recommendations for the rest of our trip. Overall, it really felt like a beautiful Saturday exploring Istanbul with old friends, even though we all arrived 'strangers'. 100% recommend!
