I left my job at one of the biggest media companies in Turkey. I am currently working on a startup aiming to save many traditional Turkish profession from sinking into oblivion. Besides, I share my love and knowledge of İstanbul(born and raised) with people and i believe i can show many perspectives of this ancient city different than regular tours.

It was great meeting Orcun and his friend and to stroll through parts of Istanbul with these two locals, getting to share their personal view on the city and being told special historical insights. We also were provided with some more tips for places to see and eat at for the rest of our stay. Book if you want a very ‚real‘ experience!

We had a wonderful afternoon with Orcun and his interpreter. They complimented each other very well and shared their knowledge of past and present Istanbul. It was great to experience their enthusiasm and love of the city. We had the opportunity to go to places we would never have thought of going to, or found, so were able to explore even more of the diversity which is Istanbul. We went to some of the less visited places which were stunning and also had time to relax. They showed us hospitality and were willing and able to answer our questions, this experience increased our understanding of Istanbul. Knowledge and sociability combined in this informative and enjoyable experience. Thank you Coreen and Mike

Interesting to learn about the history of Turkey / from the Ottoman Empire to the Republic. Orçun was kind but does not speak English. He was accompanied by his cousin who speaks English though. They were really friendly and they did provide an insightful point of view on the country.

A great experience, went to some places that I could’ve never find out about on my own, he was so knowledgeable and he really knows everything about Istanbul...and most importantly he knows all the good hidden places that’s not full of tourists and large crowds
