Private Day Trip to Princes' Islands

Doing the street art tour with Alper was a refreshingly different. The perfect thing for my teenage son who is into art . There were professional street art murals on buildings large scale by international visiting artists and also informal ones done by local artists . Captured another side of Turkey and the traditional food from different regions was amazing .

Alper met us in front of our hotel and took us to princes island. He explained everything in detail and made sure that we do not miss a thing! He is an amazing guy and we are super glad that we chose him for the tour in istanbul.

Underground Ruins & Rooftops of Old Istanbul

Benoit is a rock star tour guide! Not only is he fun, sociable, postive and accomodating to your interests and needs, but he is extraordinarily knowledgable and passionate about the life and times (present and past) of Istanbul. A true scholar and professional. We couldn't have had a better guide to open us up to the mysteries and the histories of a most incredibly beautiful and complex city -- Istanbul. Thank you Benoit.
