About the tour

The Golden Horn divides the European side of Istanbul in two parts. The Pierre Loti Hill is the best place to see this. We will have a wonderful view of the Golden Horn and the city from there. With a walk through the historical cemetery, we explore the old graves of Istanbul. With a visit to the Eyup Mosque and the Tomb, we will explore the spiritual life of the Muslims and hear some stories about Islamic history.

Meet your local guide


Born and raised in Istanbul, Safak is a licensed guide whose father is also a professional guide. He experienced the deepest parts of the city and even the country on the tours he attended with the local guides. His whole life since childhood has been spent on tours. Thus, introducing and showing his city to the people became one of his greatest passions. After acquiring this passion built over the years, today we have a guide Şafak, who does what he enjoys most, continues to open all the gates of the city to explore.

Şafak has been guiding since Jul 2019

This is my 3rd Tour. Still was faster paced and hard to view scenery when moving so fast. There were numerous times guide was distracted and didn’t finish conversations. Not sure if I watch more tours from this particular guide.

Interesting, out of the beaten track tour, with a friendly young guide. Interesting, out of the beaten track tour, with a friendly young guide. (It would be nice if he uses a small pointer instead of his finger).
