Hey there, I'm Faruk, your local host in the enchanting city of Istanbul. What I adore most about Istanbul is its historical atmosphere. This city breathes history, and I'm lucky to be a part of it. The blend of the past and present is simply mesmerizing. You'll often find me strolling through the Old Istanbul. The winding streets of Beyazıt, the grandeur of Sultanahmet Square, the bustle of Eminönü, and the lively vibes of Taksim and Kadıköy – I know these neighborhoods like the back of my hand. Don't forget Karaköy and Ortaköy, too – they've got their unique charm. I'm always ready to share the historical importance of each corner of this magnificent place. So, let's explore Istanbul together. I promise you an unforgettable adventure filled with laughter, stories, and a deep appreciation for this incredible city. See you soon!
