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 private and small group guided tours.

Hulya was amazing. She adjusted the tour to reflect our group (that included a 5 and 2 year old!!!) in a way that no other tour guide has been able to do. She engaged the kids but still was able to connect with us and share a deep knowledge of each topic she was covering. She went above and beyond to make sure our time in Istanbul was unforgettable. Thanks so much!
We had a wonderful tour with Aylin in Istanbul. Fortunately she was still available as we had some miscommunication and had missed the start time. Aylin is very knowledgeable and also extremely interested in her subject. We learnt so much and ate even more!
Claire was an amazing guide. Very knowledgeable and engaging. She went out of her way to make us have an amazing experience.
