I’ve lived in Istanbul for 44 years
I speak English, Turkish
I am a Tour Guide
Hi my name is Nese. I love travel and I have lived 15 years in Australia and 5 years in England. Nese means "joy" in Turkish and that's how I feel showing people around my city, Istanbul. Istanbul is one of the most interesting and historically important cities in the world and the best way to see Istanbul is with a friend who knows the city inside and out. I am interested in history and finding new and surprising places to visit and eat in Istanbul. I love the old style traditional restaurants that serve Turkish food the same way they would have hundreds of years ago. I also love cats and Istanbul is one of the great cat friendly cities.
