      Istanbul off the tourist trail

      If you’ve planned a trip to Isanbul, you know exactly what you’re here for. The city’s fascinating past, illustrated by centuries-spanning European- and Asian-influenced attractions, could keep you occupied for ten weeks worth of Istanbul walking tours – but with a local by your side, you’ll see the city from a different perspective. Step off the tourist trail lined by mosaic-adorned mosques and frescoed churches to explore charismatic neighborhoods you wouldn't find on a top 10 list. Our walking tours in Istanbul give you a totally authentic experience of the locals-only lifestyle.

        I spent the whole day with Ilknur in Istanbul and she was the perfect guide you could ask for. She really knows how to personalize a tour according to your nature and needs. For anyone looking for a great tour of Istanbul, whether group or solo, I'll definitely recommend Ilknur a 100 percent.

        My son-in-law and I just finished a wonderful night tour of Istanbul with Devanshu as our guide. It was obvious to see that Devanshu knows and loves his city, and even though we only had a few hours he was able to show us many of the sights. If we are in Istanbul again we will definitely book another tour. Thanks to Devanshu and Tours by Locals!
