I am a freelance working, licensed tour-guide with over 25 years experience. As I have studied Christianity, Archaeology, History, Mythology (as well as other related subjects) I can help you understand our diverse history and culture and also trying good Turkish food and looking for reliable places for shopping.
Compared to your typical guide who simply 'transport' you to the hot tourist spots, my tours are unique in the sense that you will be enthralled with historical snippets at every major point of interest. I also try to make my tours informative, and entertaining, with stories and conversation to illustrate the many facets of this richly varied and fascinating country.
Please also check me out at the Trip Advisor as "Private tour guide Ali Yalniz" to read hundreds of other perfect reviews about my tours from the past clients.

Ali's colleague, Evren, was the perfect guide to spend an afternoon seeing Istanbul with. His knowledge of the city and its history was woven into a comprehensive story that made each of the places we visited in the tour come to life. My boyfriend and I had so many incredible moments with Evren that will never be forgotten. He showed us a side of the city that we never could have experienced on our own. do yourself a favor and trust your Istanbul experience to Ali and his amazing team!

Fantastic tour. Ali listened to our interests and tailored the tour to exactly what we wanted. Great learning experience. Cost comparable to the big impersonal bus tours since we had 4 people.
