Wat je gaat doen

We will explore the seven hills of Istanbul by visiting important artifacts. We will continue our tour with our visit to Edirnekapı Mihrimah Sultan Mosque and Kariye Museum (outdoor mostly) and visit Yavuz Selim Mosque and Fener Rum High School (outdoor only). After discovering both Byzantine and Ottoman works, we will visit Fatih Mosque and its madrasas, which were built during the Ottoman period, right after the conquest of the city. Then we will discover the historical works of Architect Sinan in the classical period while we are watching the unique view of Istanbul with Suleymaniye Mosque and Complex. From here we will listen to the interesting story of Çemberlitaş from the Roman Empire. In the meantime, we will see the Nuruosmaniye Mosque, a late Ottoman monument, after touring the Grand Bazaar, the world's oldest and most active shopping place. Finally, we will visit the Sultan Ahmet Mosque and complete our tour at the Byzantine Hippodrome and today at the Sultan Ahmet Square. Before completing our tour, we will listen to the Hagia Sophia Museum, Topkapi Palace and the magnificent combination of the Blue Mosque.

This magnificent city, which has hosted three great empires for thousands of years, has been hosting me for 10 years. I completed my undergraduate study in History in this beautiful city. During this time, I had lots of guests from America and Europe. Now I am pursuing a master's degree in Ottoman history & gender studies and working as a training and development program manager. I continue to make trips to both teach and rediscover the history and daily life of Istanbul.
I am an Ottoman historian who is in love with Latin American literature, who enjoys cycling and enjoys exploring Istanbul delicacies.

Today we had a fıve hour tour through İstanbul with Erkan and what we have experienced is that Erkan is a very polite, friendly and passionate person. During our tour he was very kind and integrated our individual suggestions and wishes into the plan. His experience and his knowledge in terms of the Ottoman Empire as well as the construction of the İstanbul mosques were more than what we have expected to learn about. We can very recommend him as a guide since he is also fluent in English and patient to explain everything to people who are beginners in the İstanbul history. Thank your for the great time!

I vetted all Airbnb Istanbul experiences and chose Erkan's for his professional knowledge in Turkish history. Luckily he was able to accommodate me a private tour on a weekday evening. It proved to be the very highlight of my 9-day Istanbul stay. The depth and spectrum of Erkan's knowledge blow my mind, not to mention his easygoing personality and a good sense of humor. You can practically point at anything that you think might be historical or cultural interesting, and Erkan can tell you all about it. He is well versed in Ottoman Turkish and Arabic (which is a rare skill to come by even in Ottoman era ;-) ). He interpreted a tughra on a minivan and read a poem on an old fountain that we spotted randomly. My friend and I asked many questions about Istanbul's past and future, and he could always provide answers and insights to them. We were totally in awe at the end of our tour. Istanbul has been a unique cosmopolitan for two millennials. It has so much to offer than just the meet of the eye. Let Erkan help you to navigate through that 2000 years of history, and you will not be disappointed!

Erkan is a master in his field, intellectually stimulating, really personable, funny and interesting. I could not have asked for a better overview of Ottoman history. Very easy to get on with, he showed me sights I would never have found on my own or on a standard tour. He answered all my questions in depth. Feel lucky to have found a true historian to show me his city.. definitely not your hop on tourist trap bus tour. He was also very flexible and accommodating around my needs as I wasn’t feeling too well. Thank you Erkan! Highly recommend.
