Istanbul is famous for many things, for it's fabulous historic sites like Hagia Sophia or the Basilica Cistern, for its unique Bosphorus, for its delicious street food and so on.

The city is famous also for one more thing. It's crazy traffic jam.

If you want to enjoy the real experience of being an Istanbulite, you should travel around Istanbul with a car.

Join me for this unique experience. Beware that this tour is designed by you for you. You can direct us wherever you want to go as long as we have enough gas.

And who knows, if you are qualified for the international driving rules, you can sit behind the stirring wheel.

Hungry, most of the time, anthropologist, good reader, sometimes writer, amateur swimmer, eater, food writer, critic, quasi-narrator. I was born, raised, educated, have read, wrote and ate in Istanbul for most of my life except from the four years when I was living in Amsterdam. Together, we can explore the darkest, tastiest, the "other" Istanbul, which you cannot find on the travel accounts. Full profile

first of all this is the first time for using vayable. It was a great experience. we highly recommend booking with Levent. we had a kind of unusual request in that Turkish airlines put us up for the night as part of a layover. But we were coming in too late to do the usual tourist stuff. i was able to contact Levent and arrange for a pickup at the airport and then came up with a plan for how to spend a few hours to make the most of our time in Istanbul. Levent was totally flexible and helped us to maximize our time. Also grabbed dinner at a small restaurant which I guess anthony bourdain has recommended. Nothing fancy but very tasty and authentic. Then when i sprained my ankle (thru my own carelessness) Levent found us a night time pharmacy so i could get an ace wrap! levent is an art anthropologist so is really interesting to talk to. It is always more fun to talk to a local to hear more and learn more about the places you visit. Isnt that the point of travelling? So i would highly recommend booking with Levent!

I just got back from Istanbul and during my time there I took a driving tour with Levent. He was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide and a lovely person to be with for a few hours in the car. He picked me up at my hotel and showed me all the different corners of the city. He will suggest places but will also allow you to tailor the drive to your wishes - we even crossed the Bosporus Bridge at midnight. Levant is a highly intelligent, easygoing guy who knows the city and can be a great resource. I would highly recommend his driving tour. Tarin W
