I am a licenced tour guide in Istanbul, Turkey. I love meeting new people and guiding them in my beloved city. Making your holiday unforgettable is my priority. My specialty is the Ottoman history. But it does not mean that I do not know anything about the Byzantines.
Because Anatolia has been a cradle for many civilizations, history and tourism have always been my biggest passion. I have been working as a free-lance professional tourist guide in Anatolia since 1995 and I have more or less covered every square inch of my country. Our professional tour guides are at least 5 years experienced and they all have a wonderful background at vip, private or group tours.
