If you are coming to my town (Istanbul), Turkey, I can provide tons of insider information. In fact, I’m pretty well versed in all things Istanbul, Turkey and Turkish culture. I know well because I wrote quite a few guidebooks on Istanbul and Turkey including Quick Guide Istanbul, Quick Guide Pamphlets on Istanbul and the Turkish Odyssey, a cultural guide to Turkey and Turkish culture.
I’ve obviously been to all the places I’ve written about many many times, and either myself or one of my associates will be happy to take you around.
"All travelers are tourists but not all tourists can be travelers. To be a traveler you need to go beyond the regular, mix with locals and immerse into the local culture." This is our philosophy on travel.
It is our role, as interpretive guides to immerse our guests into the culture that they are visiting.
Likewise, our goal in trip planning is to help travelers have fun and better understanding of the culture meeting local people on a personalized itinerary that allows for spontaneous detours. While doing these, we should not forget about the time factor and neglect the historical and cultural highlights.
As Rudyard Kipling says "The first condition of understanding a foreign country is to smell it." Come and join us to smell and taste Istanbul and Turkey.
