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.

Hulya was a wonderful guide - she made sure we tasted the delicious, the exotic and the just plain interesting. And she clearly knows all the best stops! What a glorious tour - we got such a sense of the place, in a short time, which was all we had. Thank you!
Ebru was our guide for this tour and the Golden Horn on the previous day, and was incredibly knowledgeable, interesting, and fun. We would gladly tour with her again!
