Istanbul Private and Small Group Guided Tours

( 788 )
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.

Betül gave us a very pleasant tour. Lots of great background information and helpful sometimes funny stories that made this afternoon a memorable event
We really enjoyed the Savouring Istanbul Food Tour with Hulya. She was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and took us to many fantastic places to sample the food. She also had lots of general advice for our time in Istanbul. Highly recommended!
Claire’s lovely disposition and depth of her knowledge allowed teens and parents to engage in questions and enjoy the dialogue. It was a delightful three hours.
