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.

Cozy Homemade Dinner with a Turkish Family

Oğuz and his lovely family welcomed us into their nice home in Istanbul for a great variety of dishes and discussions. Yasemine is a great cook, we had a lovely dinner and got a deep inisight into their lives. Really great way to get a glimpse into the lives of a modern Turkish family.

Oğuz was the perfect host picking us up from the city and making sure we got back easily and comfortable.

We really enjoyed the time, thank you!
