If you are planning to visit Istanbul or any destination in Turkey you can ask me whatever information you need. I am a professional tourist guide in Istanbul. I've been living in the old city (the ancient Constantinople) since I was born.It is a pleasure for me to introduce you to the beauties of my city, to tell you about its history, culture and daily life. Beside visiting the must-see monuments of Istanbul, I like to show my guests also the less-known districts and make them experience the Turkish life style.Shortly, I enjoy making you "Discover Istanbul".

Fatih gave my friend and I a fantastic tour of Istanbul's attractions. He was informative, funny, and helpful. Do contact him if you want to have a better understanding of Istanbul's sites and Turkish culture.
