Vad du kommer att göra

You are done with the historical parts, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, and now do you want to hang out like a local outside of the old town? Well, then it is time to book your day with me! I offer to introduce you the lesser known sights and facts of Istanbul and even want to make you an Istanbuller by end of the day.

I have specialized my tour just for those who want to know the true face of Istanbul including its history, culture, tradition, and tips for the local life.

We start the day by enjoying the best Turkish coffee in the city where I tell you everything about our caffeinated elixir, its history, and tips to make it correctly. We spend one fourth of our time in a coffee house so if this sounds exciting, this experience is just your 'cup of coffee!'

Our route covers a long walking tour around Taksim, Beşiktaş on the European side, and Kadıköy on the Asian side. Once we walk through Beşiktaş's most delightful streets, palaces, mosques and pay a visit to its marketplace, then we will hop on a ferry and switch continents, because, this is what we do here on a daily basis: switching the continents! Well, what else can I say more? Welcome to Istanbul in advance!

Overall, if you are looking for a host whom you also wish to build personal relations and even to become good friends then I am your guy, because this is ‘Istanbul Through the Eyes of A Local’ you’re looking at now!

There is great generosity and thoughtfulness in the manner Ahmet shares his city. He has knowledge, and weaves his tales very well, though most rewarding is his critical mind and all the places a question will take him. The tour was excellent, the spots rewarding, but it’s the guide that makes the journey worthwhile.

Ahmet is an amazing guy—there aren’t many people better than him! He is knowledgeable, friendly and patient. However, our preference for an appealing tour is to experience excitement, see beautiful sites and learn local knowledge. From our perspective, the tour felt like a glorified food tour, which took us for Turkish coffee, pastries and tea, pide, and biscuits. We spent the entire day walking between cafes and then getting on the ferry to Asia later than expected. We barely had time to explore the Kadıköy markets before it got dark. The tour is framed as experiencing Istanbul through the eyes of a local, which we felt should be doing things like finding hidden courtyards in the Bazaar, stumbling upon secret cafes with views that overlook Istanbul (and its many mosques), or meeting the locals who have worked in the markets for generations. We were expecting more excitement and less focus on eating food. But again, some people may love the food-focus and Ahmet is a great guy.

Ahmet was a great local guide who showed us around to a real (and great!) Turkish coffee place, let us experience super tasty pastries, and interesting off-the-beaten-path areas of the city, next to the more busy main streets. All while telling engaging stories about the history of Turkey, Istanbul, and the locations we visited. Thanks again, Ahmet :)

This was our second experience with Ahmet and is expected it did not disappoint. He is a great storyteller and super knowledgeable about history and interesting facts that will make you see Istanbul in a different way. He’s my favorite Turkish storyteller! You should not leave Istanbul without this!

Ahmet is very attentive to everyone’s needs in the group. He is a good storyteller and is eager to share places and tips. He took us to some authentic cafes and bakeries that only locals go to. I really enjoyed my experience.

If you want an evening of immersion into the culture in Istanbul (the daily lives of its citizens, the food and drinks, the coffee culture, the secret stalls known only to locals where they serve the best desserts and such), you cannot do better than this Experience. Ahmet is your ideal guide. He has the enthusiastic energy of someone who truly loves his city. Over a few short hours, we've had discussions on coffee's history and its place in Ottoman and Turkish culture, the histories (and anecdotes) connected with less well known areas of the city, a walk through areas more popular among locals, food tastings and detailed advice on places to visit/eat in/shop at. The entire experience is not so much a guided tour as it is a lazy evening one might have with a good friend. Ahmet's hospitality and good humor will ensure you come out of this feeling like an Istanbulite. Highly recommended. Will not disappoint. Thanks again, Ahmet.
