Born and raised in Istanbul, I love sharing this cultural and historic city with my guests. I personally create the itinerary with my guests' interests in mind. I have been hosting for more than 1.5 year. I met my co-hosts Cihat and Bünyamin at university where we began hosting for Istanbul. All my co-hosts are fluent in English. Cihat is good with Istanbul's history and hidden gems. Bünyamin is an avid traveler and has a background in Literature.

My background is in engineering. By day, you can find me at my office creating solutions for modern life. When I'm not doing that, I'm showing clients the best Istanbul has to offer.

Currently I am living in the US. Therefore, my co-hosts lead the experience in Istanbul.

Quedé muy insatisfecha con el recorrido pues aparte de no estar acompañada con información por parte del guía, su entendimiento del inglés complicó un poco la comunicación. Se camina mucho y en subidas empinadas. Creo que será la primera vez que no recomiendo una experiencia.

It was okay. Most places mentioned were closed. And too many stops at eatery. Could be planned better as we were circling around same area.

Amazing! Chet and Yusuf made the tour incredible because it felt more like hanging out with friends than a tour. If you want a tour that is less of a tight structure and more relaxing where you can meet other airbnbers and see some hidden gems as well as tourist areas, book this one now!!

Sometimes I felt hesitation, uncertainty on the guide. A guide should always show confidence in leading the group. Also, never start a tour telling what will not be seen for whatever reason, focus on what will be seen in fact. I've been guiding for seven years, so I have experience. Overall it was a good start but it was very visible that the guide is a beginner. Good luck in the future, and thank you. Probably I have been commenting on the needed improvements too much but it was with good intentions. Overall, we felt good, enjoyed the sights and the company.

Het was fijn om deze tour te doen aan het begin van mijn verblijf. De gids is vriendelijk en flexibel. Hij kon snel schakelen en had ruimte voor verandering als dit vanuit de groep gevraagd werd. Vriendelijke aardige jongeman

Overall it was an okay experience. The host changed the guide in the very last minute who apparently isn’t really not interested in history of the Ottoman Empire or Turkey in general. The last minute change regarding the guide was rather unexpected and Yusuf despite his inexperience tried his level best.
