What you'll do

At first, we will meet in Üsküdar and take a boat to Anadoluhisarı which is a local town in northern Istanbul. We'll enjoy cruising with the breeze and view of the Bosphorus to reach the places we'll visit. After that, we will head to Anatolian fortress and then to Kucuksu Pavillion which was built for the last Ottoman Sultan to host royal and valuable guests from around the world in the 19th century. After our trip to these historical places, we'll head to a lovely little neighbourhood called Cengelkoy. Here we'll have tea and bagel which is the most typical and basic Turkish food&drink combination while we are enjoying the unique view of Bosphorus and the bridge. When I travel to overseas I always love to find out places where local people hang out most and spend their usual days in order to observe more about their lifestyle and daily routine so I planned a trip to show you guys more local-less touristic places as it would be a different experience for you!

Dilek

Hi! I was born and raised in a little neighbourhood near Bosphorus, in Istanbul. Studied and worked in several countries in Europe and the Middle East. As an ex-cabin crew and a person who worked in the tourism industry, travelling, interacting with people and exploring new places is my biggest passion I can say! I believe I've gained enough experience as a tour guide in Istanbul when I hosted my friends from all around the world and I know a lot about this huge metropole. Can't wait to meet and share this experience with you guys! Let's discover the undiscovered!
