Istanbul Tours and Travel Guide


Istanbul is a bustling, beautiful, busy, chaotic, romantic, historic, kitsch, or gorgeous city depending on where you are and at what time of the day. In a city of over 14 million people, the time of day changes the impression you will get of a particular region in this boundless city. People move within the city of Istanbul, which spans two continents, crossing between Europe and Asia and covering huge distances every day. You may still relax, take your time, and enjoy or take in the rush of big city life as long as you go to the right places at the right times.

Want to relax? Walk down a quiet a side street, take a  boat cruise, sit in a cafe on the  bosphorus, immerse yourself in the Byzantine era in the quiet of a Mosaic Museum, or admire the beautiful tiles in the Blue Mosque. Want to see the busy city life? Then go to Istiklal Street and watch the crowds pass by.

The European side of Istanbul is where business takes place and the Asian side is more residential. Most people who work at major foreign or domestic corporations have left the city center to live in the suburbs. Here you can find big gated communities, or even smaller scale apartment complexes from which residents are commuting daily to the city center. But of course they miss the liveliness of the main part of the city!

Wherever you go, one thing is for sure: there's something unique about this city. Maybe it is because it has seen three empires in its long history: the East Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires. Maybe it is because it is greatly multicultural, with large populations of residents from Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia, Eurasia, and Africa. Or maybe it is just this uncommon blend of East and West as well as a fusion of the traditional and the modern that Istanbul offers. Is Istanbul the furthest East of the West? Or is it the other way around? Are Turks Eastern or Western? Is "contrast" an Istanbul born phenomenon?

You have to see it yourself to decide. The Vikings named it Miklagard, which means "big city", the Slavs called it Tsarigrad - "City of Caesar", and for the Greeks it was Konstantinapolis. Maybe you will have a name of your own for Istanbul once you see and experince the city.  One thing is for certain, you must see it for yourself.

We are also able to provide Cappadocia packages, Ephesus tours, and Pamukkale sightseeing, etc.

We are ready to assist you with all your needs during your holiday in Turkey.  We can help you find a place to stay (selected hotels in istanbul), provide airport or cruise port transfers, find you official guides, offer a boat trip on bosphorus, and find flight tickets for you. Just keep in mind that your pleasure is our treasure.

Enjoy your holiday.          

All the best.
