Overview

Only private tours tours around your schedule ! No crowds to wait for, no schedules to worry about, no busses to catch. Just a friendly private guide and you, your family and friends during the 6 hour tour. No one else. Also, compared to your typical guide who simply 'transport' you to the hot tourist spots, my tour service is unique in the sense that you will be enthralled with historical snippets at every major point of interest. My individual approach comes from a keen sense of reality (and humour) and aims to be friendly, informative, and entertaining, with stories and conversation to illustrate the many facets of this richly varied and fascinating country.. Please Google me for more tour photos…

Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
