About City Unscripted Istanbul
Some people live in a city, some people live for the city. They are curious about where they live, and never want to stop exploring, and discovering the hidden gems that - to the uncurious mind - remain hidden. City Unscripted believes you should see the city with these people, and so we connect curious travellers with equally curious hosts. We exist to give travellers truly personal connections to cities, offering an alternative to the old, predictable world of tour guides. With a network of 1400+ hosts in 40 cities across the world, City Unscripted personally matches each guest to the right host, who creates an experience personalised just for them. This way, no two experiences are the same. The hosts are here to be the guests’ open-minded, passionate and knowledgable friend who can’t wait to show off their home. The service is trustworthy, safe and secure as each host is individually verified, who always check in with their guest before each experience to understand their needs.

Istanbul is considered to be one of the largest cities in Europe but with half a day to spare, you may be wondering how you can make the most of your time here. You couldn’t possibly explore all of Istanbul in a week, let alone a day – but we can help make your trip a memorable one by pairing you up with a Host who can take you to the places you've always wanted to experience. You may prefer to spend your time wandering through the city's cobbled streets and bustling bazaars, losing yourself in Istanbul's rich cultural diversity, or you could instead absorb Istanbul's history with a trip to one of its museums. Within 24 hours of your booking, we will contact you to find out about your interests so we can assign a like-minded local who will create a bespoke experience for you. Your Host will suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place, but you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
