My story

I like to think that Istanbul is my birthday gift :) First time I came here to celebrate my birthday just for a few days and fell in love with the city immediately. I adore big cities, vibrant energy, diverse mentality, rich history, delicious food, and every day I find these in Istanbul. Through the years I kept coming here again and again and finally moved to Istanbul as soon as I got the chance, even if it happened right in the middle of a global pandemic. I must say I’ve never regretted this decision.

What do I do here?

I’m a part-time social media manager and full-time Istanbul explorer. I like to discover new places, and people, and experience them every day. When I was in tourist mode here, I spent a few months walking at least 15 km every single day exploring the Istanbul districts one by one, finding out its hidden gems, getting along with the communities, and collecting magnificent experiences. I have a lot to tell and share with you!

What's the best of my city?

If I could choose only one word describing Istanbul, it would be — carefree. The city has that special vibe that makes you feel relaxed and enjoy your life on so many levels. Everyone can find a place to fit. No one is gonna judge you, you are just being yourself here. Istanbul is enormously hospital to everyone who is ready to share the positive vibes, so be sure you will feel comfortable. With my help of course :) Don’t miss your chance to explore the city’s vibrant atmosphere, stunning architecture, magnificent Bosphorus view, delicious Turkish breakfast, and many more unique experiences.

My tours secret sauce

When you are born and raised somewhere, you can never pay attention to things and places you see and do on a regular basis. Whereas they often reflect the essence of your culture, help to understand your way of thinking, and overall are very important pieces of the whole picture. I will introduce you to these pieces, so you can really dive into the Turkish culture, should it be the vibrant Bosphorus seaside or Beyoglus’ diverse districts. Just text me and I will find the best suitable route in Istanbul for you.
