Enrich your stay with some insiders’ knowledge early on. This walk will introduce you to Beyoğlu. You’ll be equipped with valuable insider’s knowledge to make your visit a much richer and more memorable one. You’ll gain confidence in the city around you and start to see your own way of making the most of it during the rest of your stay.

Our experienced, characterful and clear English-speaking walk leader will meet you in a comfortable cafe, then take you out to get the bearings of your new neighborhood. You’ll be shown well-hidden, special places to eat, drink, shop and explore while given practical information about nearby links (metro, tram and ferry) to journey further afield later on your own.

You’ll gain fascinating insight into how local people live here now, what they do with their time (and have done for hundreds of years) in the streets around. Your guide will be intuitive and sensitive to your particular interests as much as time allows. You’ll feel very different about Istanbul than you did 3 hours previously!
