My story

I was born and raised in Istanbul and I feel very lucky living in this amazing and culturally rich city. I have chosen Istanbul because its my home town and living in Istanbul is a never ending adventure. When you visit you will see that how the city combines the historical texture and modern world.

What do I do here?

I'm an industrial consultant by day, but I'm also a professional musician, an amateur photographer, and a good cook. As a part of my job and my hobbies, I travel a lot in Turkey experiencing and exploring tremendous amounts of places, cultures, and foods which adds value to my experience.

What's the best of my city?

I like the harmony of disorder in Istanbul. As one of the first multi-cultural city, Istanbul is a massive place housing numerous cultures with it's historical texture and by nature, which is very resourceful for travellers offering limitless things to do. Just ask me what you wish of Istanbul.

My tours secret sauce

As a traveler myself, I know the value of time while traveling. I believe each tour should be tailor made for the interests of travellers. But I must tell... I'm coming from a great Gourmet family, and when it comes to foods and drinks I'm a picky one. There is no secret sauce, you only need the right ingredients which are; get your smartphones and cameras charged up, and come hungry.
