Tourist Guide in Istanbul


Discover Istanbul & Turkey
with Tourist Guide Serif Yenen & Associates

“All travelers are tourists; not all tourists are travelers.” Be a traveler! Go beyond the ordinary. Mix with locals. Immerse yourself in the local culture.

In addition to showing you the highlights of the city, I’m prepared to take you to places not on the tourist’s typical itinerary, where we can have local experiences and meet local people. If you wish, we can use public transportation, try various kinds of street food, and take any opportunity for a spontaneous detour.

Daily rates start at $150 US for two guests in total. We have a variety of choices for all kinds of budgets, and depending upon your preferred time and personal interests. My associates and I are eager to share our knowledge and experience with you.

As a tour guide, I have more than 25 years of field experience. I served in the Tour Guide Organization for 13 years, and was elected President for four terms. I am also an author of many guidebooks and lecturer on Turkish travel.

VIPs who have used my services include: Pope Benedict XVI, Oprah Winfrey, Dr. George Friedman, Matt Lauer and Lester Holt.

We look forward to hearing from you. Ask for a Quote!
