Tour by Ali Süreyya

Since 1995 I guided guests from all over the world to let them get to know my hometown Istanbul which is the unique city of the world settled on two continents.
I am a tourist guide with a lot of experience who can figure out and deal any unexpected surprise which may occur during a tour.
It is my responsibility to value every moment of you during our tour.
I aspire to show and tell you about Istanbul in the best manner.
If you have any further inquiries, please let me know.
