I always enjoy free walking tours whenever I am traveling, even more than paid ones! I had the pleasure of being on the Historical tour with Yunus in Istanbul and it was incredible!! The 2.5 hours flew by and I had such an amazing time. He was knowledgeable, funny and very charismatic. He showed us around the most landmarks in the city while giving background stories of how they came to be and their impact on todays world. Yunus also gave us tips on getting around Istanbul, local shops and food places! I would highly recommend doing this tour the first day you arrive so that you have lots of good recommendations from a local!! Thank you again Yunus! :)

We took 2 tours (the top sites and the alternative one) and both were excellent. Yunus was particularly helpful, not only during the tour, but even after it. He gave us his phone number and helped us get other tours or discounts! Would definitely recommend!

I’ve done these free walking tours in a few cities over the years & they are great. Today Yunus gave us his perspective on life in Turkey. We got to sample some local foods, learnt a few Turkish phrases, visited some interesting backstreets as well as 2 magnificent mosques & the spice markets! Lots of variety & something different. Hearing about the city from a local is fantastic. Highly recommend these tours. Great value 👍

We spent a great afternoon being shown a local’s view of the old town. We saw the Grand Bazar(briefly), two mosques,the spice market and the University all with a very local perspective. For a minimum tip of 10 Euros this is very good value.

Yunus is an amazing tour guide, I can’t recommend him enough. Few tour guides can hit the highlights of a city while also recommending local spots, Yunus did both. My boyfriend and I left feeling like we could navigate around Istanbul, and with so many recommendations (that we tried and loved). Seriously one of the best tours of the city, book it!
