What people are saying about Balat
We were very privileged indeed to have Çetin as our tour guide who’s very knowledgeable and deeply passionate of what he does. He covered many aspects of our walks beyond our expectations and kept us engaged all the way through! We were also impressed and humbled to be able to view some hidden treasures/sites through his excellent contacts following his many years of experience as a tour guide. We’d definitely highly recommend him and the company for such a memorable experience in Istanbul. Thank you once again! Helena and Liane
So glad we took that tour! It turned out, it was only the 3 of us with my wife and Adnan - our guide. It was a marvelous 3h experience. Adnan is extremely versed in the history and culture of Istanbul/Constantinople, and a great human being. The tour was a pleasure, and the tips we got from him about local restaurants and places to visit were priceless! Warmly recommend this tour to anybody who has checked out the main attractions in town and wants to experience its authentic and vibrant nature.
Actually, I live in Istanbul:) And I already visited Fener and Balat many times. I booked this tour for my 12-year-old nephew who lives in Dubai. He loves taking this kind of tour. Although I thought that I know those neighborhoods as a local man, I understand I didn't know :) Many thanks to our guide Mr. Cetin for his excellent knowledge. And thanks to Ms. Arzu for her good communication.
Our guide Mr. Adnan was helpful with historic stories that local people could deliver. This is an exceptional route that we can enjoy Byzantine relics. I had such an unexpected yet wonderful experience. I hope I can actually visit Blachernae Palace when the restoration is complete.
Amazing walk off the beaten track through Balat neighborhood. Sabih was showing us the most amazing places such as synagogues, churches and the patriarch of Greek Orthodoxy. All COVID conform. Highly recommended!!
