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.

Hulya was very knowledgeable about Turkish cuisine. She also provided the history behind the dishes we tasted which added so much value to the experience.
Ebru is a wonderful guide! She is extremely knowledgeable and makes history so much fun! She adjusted her information so those in our tour who had more background in the history of the area learned and enjoyed the tour as much as those with less background. She tied the information really nicely to other parts of the Greek, Roman and Hittite histories as well as to the rest of Asian, European and African world at the time. We cannot recommend her highly enough!
Lovely guide
