Experience hosted by Andromeda

  2. Hosted in English

What you'll do

We'll meet at CAFE NERO in Nişantaşı (7'min. walk from Osmanbey metro)
We'll start the tour with a very tasty Cappuccino or your choice of drink, in one of the many super cute and cosy cafés in Nişantaşı, we will visit several.
We can have a delicious home made dessert before starting an eye feasting walk through the tree lined, charming streets of very beautiful-classy Nişantaşı and the original district with the most elegant shops.

We'll enter an array of designer shops if you wish to do so, or simply do window shopping or go to more accessible ones like Zara, the Gap, Banana Republic or Turkish own brands.
•• I will assist you in Turkish language, hence barely anyone at the shops speak good English.
If you don't wish to do the shopping scene, we have alternatives like going to Maçka park (the most beautiful park in this area) and ride the ski-gondola over the tree's canapé. Or visit other quaint cafes/restaurants and chill while enjoying the panorama.

Some designer brands:
Channel, Vuitton, Gucci, Dior, Hermes, Prada, Ferragamo, McQueen etc.
We can have lunch at any time during the experience at one of 3 very nice places with either a big garden, an outside terrace or a beautiful view on the rooftop or at the top floor of a luxury mall with a big selection of tasty restaurants. We'll choose together.

For another start time, please let me know at least a day in advance
Other things to note
Start 12pm till 3pm
If you wish to modify the time to be able to accommodate you better, let me know at least 24h before the start of our meeting, It's better to be flexible to create a more pleasant experience.

Andromeda was an amazing guide, I had specific requests on the places of interest, type of foods I like, and items I wanted to purchase. She tailored made the experience for me and we visited many restaurants/stores/parks, etc. you wouldn't find in a city guide. A plus for me was that she speaks Spanish and she is flexible with your requests. I feel like I have a new friend!
