About Me

My name is Dilek, a national – licensed tour guide. I am 40 years old and have been guiding for 12 years. My husband is from Mexico and with our two young kids we live in Istanbul. When I don’t work I spend most of my time outdoor with my family, enjoy istanbul as much as we can.

I am qualified in the knowledge of Turkish history, mythology, archaeology, history of religion and history of art.  I speak English and Spanish. Following my university graduation, I lived in England for 5 years where I continued my education studying Travel and Tourism at Greenwich School of Management. After I lived a short time in Guatemala, Cuba to learn Spanish.

In my tour I would like to show you architectural styles, historical fun facts, famous historical monuments, tell you about the peoples life in Istanbul, how we spend our days, where do people go to eat, what we eat, where we shop, what we listen, the best places to eat, drink and party.

As your local guide, I am flexible to your wishes and needs. Making it interesting and enjoyable for you is my wish.

With all of my years of experience in the travel industry, I hope to help you make the most of your time in beautiful Istanbul by taking a tour with me. I very much look forward to meeting you all!
