There is no better way to visit Istanbul on a layover than with a local who knows the ins and outs of this magical city; we'll take you through the history-rich cobblestone alleys rather than the congested modern streets, maybe take a break at the best Turkish coffee or tea spot, and of course, navigate Grand Bazaar and help you 'negotiate' a winning deal. We know you're on a time crunch and we'll make sure to get you out, and in, with the best memories of Istanbul. We suggest two options for this time duration;Option one:Taksim square Istiklal streetGalata TowerOption two:Sultan Ahmet Mosque and Aya SophiaCisternGrand Bazar Reserve a tour with us and we'll make sure to customize it just the way you want it. We love hosting :)
Omar is civil engineer and Sally is an adult English teacher. We both speak fluent English. Passionate about the history of Istanbul and know exactly where to go and what to do when you have a layover here. We are originally from Cairo, but have been living and loving Istanbul for over 13 years. When we have friends or family visiting, we naturally become the tour guide (and we love it).
