Alternative Istanbul: Yeldeğirmeni & Street Art
My friend and I could have hoped for a better host to introduce us to the magnificent city of Istanbul. Alper was everything you would want in a guide - approachable, knowledgeable, fun, and crafted a tour that drew upon our interests and Alper's rich knowledge of the city.
I could not recommend Alper more!

Istanbul Food Tour: Street Flavors
We loved our tour with Deniz. He knew a great deal about the city and art history.
He has a very pleasant personality and was great about communicating with us before and during our tour of Istanbul. We appreciated his depth of knowledge and his easy-going nature.
We enjoyed our time with him and would recommend tours with him to anyone.
