Istanbul Private and Small Group Guided Tours

( 754 )
Long known as the city where East meets West, Istanbul’s cosmopolitan past as the meeting point of nationalities, traditions, and regions has ushered in a wonderfully rich present.
Modern Istanbul first opened to the West in the 19th century as the fading Ottoman Empire began a program of rapprochement with European powers. The interplay of those influences today remains visible in a wonderfully diverse mix of neoclassical architecture, Art Nouveau Parisian-style covered passages, Turkish souks, and a vibrant street life of cafes, shops, and fine restaurants. Immerse yourself in dynamic Istanbul with Context's Istanbul private tours, guided by our local Istanbul private guides.

Aylin was wonderful - so knowledgeable and gracious!
Ebru was just the kind of guide we wanted: super informative with a real depth of knowledge and amazing English. She was just perfect and we loved every minute of our tour with her. If you are looking for historical depth, this is the person you need. Brilliant. Thank you Ebru.
Context never disappoints, and Ebru was totally amazing! She gave me this tour, and also Istanbul's Magnificent Mosques. Ebru is so knowledgeable and obviously passionate about her topics, that I am grateful to have met her. I learned so much about the incomparable Hagia Sophia, as well as the broader history of the Ottoman Empire and Islam itself. Easily the highlight of my fantastic trip to Turkey. Thank you!
