CHOOSE US.

Istanbul is not perhaps the easiest city to stroll for first time visitors who speak no Turkish and have no conception of its scale.

It requires a bit of skill to see the mosques, palaces and museums conveniently since neither their opening times are consistent nor their locations congruent.

Once within, it would be quite possible to waste a 
lot of time in aimless traipsing. These places are not  self-explanatory and it is not obvious what went on where.

It is not clear either where to eat, or what to eat.

Istanbul is a walking city and we’re a group of professional tour guides with official licenses :

The sort of guides who are reliable, knowledgeable and fun.
