About The Author: Serhat Engül
This is Serhat from Istanbul. I was born in Istanbul in 1980 and was raised up in this magnificent city. I have been working as a licensed tour guide for the last 12 years. I like to treat my clients as if they are my friends coming and visiting my beautiful city. I am a very knowledgeable person in my field and I am willing to tell you all about the Greek, Roman, Ottoman and Turkish history of the city.
I use lots of visual aids to make sure that you understand the historical significance and architecture of the city. I have studied European History, Christianity, Archaeology, Mythology and History; therefore, I can help you understand Istanbul’s diverse history and sophisticated culture much better than anyone else. I will also help you learn about the intricacies of Turkish culture and take you to the best local restaurants serving delicious food, which are otherwise hard to find.
I know great spots for taking the best panoramic photographs since I am professionally interested in photography. I am sure that you will feel like you have a very good new friend in Istanbul by the time we finish the tour.
Please rest assured that you will be welcome in Istanbul if you choose me as your guide.
With my best regards,
