My name is Esra and I work as a Professional and Licensed Tour Guide in Istanbul,Turkey.My license is officially approved by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Turkish Republic and I'm a member of the Istanbul Chamber og Guides. I provide my services in English language.I was born and raised in Istanbul so it is an advantage for me; I guide in my home city which I know like the back of my hand (nevertheless I have a national licence and I can perform my profession anywhere in Turkey).
I have two majors: one in Sociology and the other in Tour Guidance.
My family has also been in tourism business for many years so I've had the chance to observe a lot about the essentials of Hospitality ever since my childhood.
I'm a free-lance working guide.I have connections with some local agencies and I give them my services from time to time but basically I work alone. My tours take place mainly around the touristic sights but for different tastes I can prepare custom-made tours upon request (where the focus is on food,shopping or daily life). If you're considering to visit my city, I would be more than happy to be your guide.
Istanbul is a magical and breath-taking city.There are tons to explore and many places to see.It's where East meets the West.This is the city where you always have to be ready for sweet and interesting surprises.You will taste delicious food and meet many friendly people.The bottom line is, you will have lots of fun in this memorable city.
