Merhaba! My name's Tim and I am an Australian who has lived in Istanbul, Turkey for more than 6 years. My first visit here was in 2008, and after falling in love with the city (its culture, history, people, food, nightlife, mosques and churches) I decided to move here. Now I run tours, operate a translation company, and perform as a DJ in my free time. So, if you want to explore the city like a local and enjoy everything this beautiful historic city has to offer, come and join me for a trip around town. As Napoleon said, "If the Earth were a single state, Istanbul would be its capital.” Güle güle! :-)

Istanbul: Day or Night, Europe & Asia.

Istanbul is my favourite city in the world! I've lived here for the last 6 years (originally from Australia) and I love showing the city off to my guests from around the globe!

My tour will include all the major highlights of the old and new city (Aya Sophia, The Blue Mosque, Hippodrome, The Grand Bazaar, The Spice Bazaar, Galata, Taksim etc.), plus a ferry trip to the Asian side of Istanbul (Kadıköy) to finish the journey off.

This trip is perfect if you are here for a short time and want to see Istanbul's most iconic sites or even a longer stay and want in-depth knowledge of Istanbul and Turkey.

So, if you want to explore and experience the city like a local, join me for a day of exploring, eating, and adventure :)

Taksim and Istiklal Street (Pera)

The heart of modern Istanbul! Taksim is Istanbul's main cultural hub. The first place people think of when they want to shop, eat, party, or gather with their friends. We will explore Taksim Square, Gezi Park, Istiklal Street, and the hidden back streets and arcades that are scattered throughout the area. Come see why millions of people visit Taksim everyday.

Galata and Karaköy

One of the oldest and most historic neighbourhoods of Istanbul (and my personal favourite). The quarter which once housed the Gonoese and Jewish communities for centuries. Home to the iconic Galata Tower, cobbled streets, and now funky shops, cafes, and bars.

Sultanahmet & Eminönü

The heart of ancient Constantinople! And a UNESCO World Heritage Site! We will make our way up from the mercantile, waterfront district Eminönü (visiting the Spice Bazaar and sampling fresh produce and Turkish delight along the way), to Sultanahmet (stopping off to marvel at the Aya Sophia, visiting the Blue Mosque, the Hippodrome, and wandering the labyrinth known as the Grand Bazaar).

Ferry trip to the Asian side (Kadıköy)

After a long day of walking and exploring, we will take one of Istanbul's iconic ferry trips to the Asian/Anatolian side of Istanbul, Kadıköy. Kadıköy is a buzzing, bustling neighbourhood, home to a fantastic food bazaar and great bars and restaurants.

From Kadıköy I will assist you in getting to your hotel.
