The Asian side of Istanbul is a favorite of mine. It offers beautiful views of Istanbul and a less crowded atmosphere than the European side.

We will go to next to Kizkulesi, Maiden's Tower, where you'll be surrounded by the Bosphorus and can watch the boats go by. I'll fill you in on the history behind Maiden's Tower and what you can see from there. And we can take a short walk next to sea side with a feeling of refreshing wind.

From there we'll go to Camlica, one of the highest hills in Istanbul, where you'll get a feel of Ottoman times. We'll sip on tea as we look out on the sweeping views and peaceful atmosphere.

Down The Rabbit Hole Once upon a time, there was a girl who decided to become a mighty translator, she fought evil (like; witches, exams and final test; thesis) all for 4 years then she became what she wanted, by the time she achieved she understood she didn’t want it so much, she remembered her dreams like to be a belly dancer and an astronaut, travelling the world and for one of the dream it was not so late. Well, it was not belly dancing. It was travelling, so she did, she left her land and sailed to the wonderland, where she could be a princess in the day time and be pirate at nights. Okay, not everything was so magical. I studied Translation and Interpreting and decided to work in cruise ships as a youth counselor (playing with kids and stuff) so that I can see the world, meet crazy new people and on top of that make some money:) After this I have lived in Poland and worked in a school for 7 months. Then this crazy idea came to my mind to apply for Emirates airline and i did. Now here i am in Dubai! The land of biggest, the most and largest :) I can still help you to organise trips around Istanbul or Turkey, or if you are around Dubai let me know I can show you around :) Cheers, Merve Full profile

Merve has a lot of insight into the different sides of Istanbul. She is not only a native of Istanbul, but also loves her city. She'll show you great spots to get the best pictures and views!

Our exploration of the Asian side of Istanbul was a memorable experience. Merve met us and off we went across the water to the Asian side. We went to places where almost everyone you saw was not a tourist. We enjoyed panoramic vistas, all sorts of tasty treats, and most of all enjoyed an evening going to the places that locals frequent. The views, the tastes, the experience of seeing where locals go, riding the ferries, all combined to create a magical evening. Merve is charming, bright, intelligent, and made us feel like we were long-time friends.
