Living is a delight

My story

There may be a little bias here but this city is simply amazing! I am from Istanbul born and raised. Lived most of my life here, and I love my city with passion.

What do I do here?

I studied Political Science, lived/worked in the United States, travelled South America for a while until my city called me back. I like traveling, exploring culinary backstreets, bars, rooftops, dancing scenes. Weekend getaways, classical rock, scuba diving, camping, ukulele playing, and magic tricks are my hobbies. Above all, I like to make lasting friendships.

What's the best of my city?

Istanbul is full of stories and experiences. It is the East and it is the West. History is rich, food is yummy, street life is vibrant. We like to party like there is no tomorrow. You will be positively surprised. Guaranteed!

My tours secret sauce
