Alternative Istanbul: Yeldeğirmeni & Street Art in Kadıköy

Alper is an amazing guy,
I can say this, if you like grafity art, local food, small urban shops. If you like to see Istanbul like the locals do live. I would say you got to book this guy.

I wish there would be more like this.

All About Mezes: Private Cooking Workshop on Prince Island

Ibrahim was a fantastic host. He showed us around the Island, took us shopping and welcomed us into his home which had fantastic views across all of Istanbul. We cooked and talked all afternoon and ate some of the most delicious food we had during our time in Turkey. I cannot thank Ibrahim enough for his kindness and hospitality. Definitely recommend.

A customized trip with Alina

Alina is awesome! She was very accommodating with a personalized tour of Istanbul for my son and I. She came up with an itinerary that suited us perfectly and was an engaging and genuinely kind guide. We are not normally the "tour" type but are so happy we met up with Alina to get an introduction and some tips about Istanbul to start our visit off on the right foot and get the most out of it. Highly recommend!
