Què farem?

This experience will cover the popular sites and less touristy back streets of the fascinating, historic Galata and Beyoğlu (Pera) districts of İstanbul. These districts have an entirely different history than the city of Constantinople (Historical Peninsula) . On this experience, we will talk about the history and architecture of Istanbul in general and Galata Neighbourhood, will talk about the cultural, non touristy things to do in Istanbul. More than all, you will experience these with an architectural history buff local person who adores Istanbul, not with a tour guide.

We will meet in Karaköy, where we will navigate our way through Galata’s narrow streets to discover magnificent architecture.

Our journey will explore hidden treasures of Neoclassical, Beaux-Arts, and Neo Baroque architecture that you might never see on your own. When we see the Galata Tower, we’ll talk about why it was built by a bunch of Genoans.

Then we'll head to Turkey’s most famous and busy street, Istiklal and continue to discover the side streets that are hidden to most tourists.

After that, we will walk through some quite and local, residential neighbourhoods and see some beautiful buildings and gardens along their back alleys.

My experiences are designed to be interactive, so we’ll have plenty of time for questions.

I’m a photography and architectural history buff and design my experiences to highlight both of those passions.

I love travelling and taking pictures of beautiful buildings. Some of my favorite things are architecture, drawing, singing, filming, travelling, meeting new people, and getting lost in an old city.

I'm studying Architecture & Urban Studies as a master degree.

Also, since I'm a professional photographer, you can ask me to take a pic of you any time :) I know the best places to take pics!

İlkin is very friendly and warm person. Extremely knowledgable about the architecture and history of the place. Maps, photographs, and excerpts from history books were used to tell the story of this unique city. Excellent value. Very patient and İlkin was able to elaborate on anything if asked a question! Definitely book a tour with İlkin!
