Let's walk together on the Galata bridge from Karakoy neighborhood to former Constantinople!! On one side there will be Asia and on the other side European continents. The walk will be at the point where two continents meet and where the Silk Road ended. We will be facing the historic peninsula which couldn’t be shared through centuries and became the cause of many wars. We will see some of İstanbul’s highlights from the distance as Suleymaniye mosque ( 1550), New Mosque ( 1664), Galata Bridge, Istanbul fish sandwich boats, and street vendors. The walk will make you feel that you are touching the heart of Istanbul by watching the fishermen on the bridge, ferry traffic across the Bosporus and the Golden Horn, local rushing between bazaars and ferry piers, Istanbulies staying in line to get the delicious fish sandwich and more...

Fantastic tour crossing the Galata Bridge. Salih covered lots of territory while imparting fascinating history with his usual charm. I've loved his other tours also, but this is one of the best. Not to be missed.

A charming trip into the "deep" Istanbul, with realistic views from the crowded and lively streets!

Salih was a great guide and lead a really interesting tour! He told lots of history in a way that wasn't boring and I learned a lot about Istanbul. He has a nice personality and responded to the chat very well. Being able to see his interactions with some locals was also really cool and felt especially authentic. I look forward to taking another of his tours sometime!
