My story

Istanbul is a city of contrasts. Many nations dreamed of possessing it. It is impossible to get enough of Istanbul. Once you get here, you will not remain indifferent. It happened to me as well. Noisy, colorful, he hit me right in my heart. I took my daughter, packed our suitcase and moved here in one day!

What do I do here?

I work as a freelance copywriter. I also help to organize trips to the real Turkey, not the one with "all-included", but to hospitable and amazing. I know secret places, that guidebooks won't tell you about. I have worked in customer service all my life, so I understand how important even the smallest things are in the process of providing service. At the moment, I am focused on organizing tours in Turkey and walking around Istanbul.

What's the best of my city?

I know where the most beautiful viewpoints and photo spots are located, where you can taste delicious kebab, baklava, and Ottoman coffee. I moved here by myself, without any help, so I will be happy to share the "inside" of this process and tell you about ordinary life: shops, schools, healthcare.

My tours secret sauce

I am in love with Istanbul and sincerely believe that no one, except the person who is "sick" with this place, can show you it so "tasty" and deeply.
