ABOUT ME Hello! I’m Süreyya, i was born in Istanbul. I’m 23 years old. I’m studying English translation and interpreting in Marmara University. My dream is to be a good translator/interpreter one day. I love discovering new cultures and meeting new people so traveling is a huge hobby of mine. I am also interested in languages I have basic Spanish commutation skills and currently studying Japanese. I love pets and I have a cat :-) PS: I am vaccinated and very careful about COVID-19 safety.
WHEN WE MEET I can arrange tailor-made tours according to your needs and wishes. When we first meet I will show you a list and you will pick where you want to see and what you want to try in Istanbul. So each guests tour will be different and special :-) Also in touristic places unfortunately tourists can easily be charged for more money than in local areas. I will show you also the places that have reasonable prices and good quality. **ATTENTION** You can also hire me for 1 day only for Üsküdar tour. I can show you everything that is worth seeing in Üsküdar and make you taste the best food here. The tour involves cultural information about Turkey, Turkish lifestyle, Turkish breakfast, Beylerbeyi Palace tour, Kuzguncuk cultural tour, Üsküdar mosques and historical information, Maidens Tower and it’s history and legends, lastly best meals and desserts that you can have :-) **ATTENTION2** For the women who want to see modest/hijabi shopping sites, I can make a special modest shopping tour for you :-) and we can talk about the hijab fashion styles in Turkey. TRAVEL IDEAS During day time I think it would be best to visit the most touristic place of Istanbul which is the historic peninsula. There we will find Aya Sofia, blue mosque, historic square, underground cisterns, grand bazaar. If the guests would like to visit museums we would check Istanbul archeological museum or turkish and islamic arts museum. If they don’t want this classic tourist route, there are also other travel options in the big city of Istanbul. During night time I would show the places in Istanbul that have a nice night view. We would start by seeing the sunset view in Galata tower then walking in istiklal street in Taksim and Taksim square lastly I would show them the Bosphorus in the night and Maiden’s Tower. I love Istanbul because it is the city that you can find everything you want and my hometown. And I want to be a local because I love talking to foreigners And get to know more about their life and culture :-) I HOPE WE HAVE A GREAT TIME TOGETHER (^_^)
