Istanbul Tourist Guide (2024)

Hello, I am Serhat Engul, an Istanbulite who has been working as a professional tourist guide in Istanbul for about 20 years. On this site you can find information about the private guided walking tours I offer in Istanbul in 2024.

My tours basically include the historical districts of Istanbul such as Sultanahmet (Old City), Beyoglu (aka Taksim), Fener & Balat (Golden Horn), Ortakoy & Bebek (Bosphorus) and Kadikoy (Asian Side). I design the content of these tours to avoid getting stuck in long lines during tourist seasons.

During the tours, we meet at a predetermined point and visit the most popular historical monuments at the earliest. The rest of the time we focus on places outside the main tourist circle, where I can tell you what I know about the history and culture of the city.

Half Day Tours in Istanbul

Istanbul Tourist Guide Serhat Engul

You can learn a lot about Istanbul’s history, culture, daily life and local foods on these half-day tours that last between 3 and 4 hours. I developed my tours with the feedback I received over the years and made them convey maximum information in the shortest time.

Although these tours generally tell about the history of Istanbul, there are also thematic tours that focus on a certain period, such as the Byzantine history tour.

My Reviews on TripAdvisor

Istanbul Tour Guide Reviews on TripAdvisor

In 20 years, I have guided people from many nations, especially the USA, UK and Canada. Some of my guests noted their impressions of the tours they experienced with me on my Trip Advisor page. You can read the reviews written about me via this link.

You can see that the most prominent tours in these reviews are the Sultanahmet tour, the Byzantine history tour and the Fener & Balat walking tour. The history of these districts becomes meaningful when visited with a tourist guide in Istanbul.
