    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.

Private Tours in Istanbul

Whether you have a full day, half a day, or just three hours, it’s more than enough time to explore mosaic-adorned mosques, frescoed churches, and incredible markets on our city tours of Istanbul. Led by a local guide who’s intimately familiar with their city, our private tours in Istanbul uncover the hidden haunts and lesser-known landmarks of the city that straddles two continents. On a private tour of Istanbul, the city opens itself up for exploration beyond its top tourist sights. From the iconic Grand Bazaar to traditional Turkish taverns, the city is brimming with amazing attractions – but our personalized tours of Istanbul also let you see the Turkish capital through a local lens. The city may be a living museum, but some of the best things to do in Istanbul are the modern pastimes of the people who call it home. On a walking tour at any hour, you’ll marvel at ancient architecture, explore the crisscrossing lanes of local markets, and discover hole-in-the-wall eateries serving the best Şiş Kebap. A private tour with City Unscripted won’t get you caught in a tourist trap – simply tell us what a dream local tour of Istanbul looks like to you, and we’ll make it happen!
