You might turn a short layover in Istanbul into a memorable day. I will come to the airport to pick you up and drive to the city and make a short tour; perhaps time for some shopping and even a quick bite to eat at a local restaurant before drop you off at the airport again.
I am a freelance working, licensed tour-guide with over 25 years experience. As I have studied Christianity, Archaeology, History, Mythology (as well as other related subjects) I can help you understand our diverse history and culture and also trying good Turkish food and looking for reliable places for shopping. Compared to your typical guide who simply 'transport' you to the hot tourist spots, my tours are unique in the sense that you will be enthralled with historical snippets at every major point of interest. I also try to make my tours informative, and entertaining, with stories and conversation to illustrate the many facets of this richly varied and fascinating country. Please also check me out at the Trip Advisor as "Private tour guide Ali Yalniz" to read hundreds of other perfect reviews about my tours from the past clients. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
