You've seen Aya Sophia, Topkapi Palace and the Blue Mosque? Now it's time for the real Istanbul beats. Discover the hidden face of Istanbul with Nathalie's private city walks. She is a Belgian journalist who has fallen in love with in Istanbul and who will take you to her favorite places on a full day walk off the beaten tracks. Not only will you get a chance to experience the daily life of the Istanbullu's, both in the old and the new town, but you will also discover some hidden architectural gems and hear stories and anecdotes along your way. Guided walks are in English, Dutch and French. Her company is Istanbul Privé. If you google it you will find it.

I didn't actually get to take the tour. Our trip was cut short. So I only rated it "very good"--but Nathalie was very helpful before my trip with lots of information about the city and I am sorry I did not get to take her tour.

I opted for the 1/2 day explore Istanbul walk, the guides we brilliant, they has a lot of information, were great communicators and keep the group together, which was not always easy. The only part of the tour that did no work for me was the 30 minute stop over at a carpet seller - termed "viewing traditional crafts", this is nothing other than a smooth sales pitch to sell rugs, whilst it was interesting it is a waste of precious time if you are not interested in buying. I would also recommend that given the amazing things there are to see in Istanbul, you should try and take the full day tour.

Had a fantastic walking day tour of all the sights of Istanbul with Yuke. She was very knowledgable of all aspects of the history and places that we saw. It was a long day walking but well worth the effort with great commentary and special home made snacks at the end. Would recommend this company and especially Yuke...

Highly advise walking tours of Istanbul - especially as entry to attractions is included in price enabling to 'queue jump' some of the busier attractions.
