Private Turkish Breakfast with a Chef!

Aysegul was excellent. She had a heavy cold and was obviously feeling unwell, but she was warm and friendly nonetheless. She took us for breakfast and introduced us to some real Turkish dishes - I'm looking for menemen recipes now. We then went for coffee, and she showed s how to read our futures from the coffee grounds. She gave us some suggestions for restaurants in our area - all of them were brilliant. We were just sorry we didn't get chance to visit the restaurant where she works, Kilimanjaro. All in all, we'd recommend her highly.

The Antique Gems of Istanbul Tour

I arrived jet lagged and disoriented. Diana was wonderful. She took all the work and decision making off of my hands and knew just where to take me to make me happy. I’ve decided to book her on Sunday too to explore some of the port areas on the European side. It’s like having an instant friend in Istanbul. This was the best decision I have made coming here.

Hipster Kadikoy: Food, Hotspots & Beers!

Thank you Ceren for the nice evening in Kadiköy! We enjoyed our walk, dinner and the bars very much. Our spontaneous visit to the Asian side of the Bosphorus was a highlight of our weekend trip to Istanbul. We can really recommend Ceren and Kadiköy to all who are tired of tourist attractions and want to see a lively and hip place in Istanbul.
