Libidinous sultans, ambitious courtiers, beautiful concubines and scheming eunuchs lived and worked here between the 15th and 19th centuries when it was the court of the Ottoman empire. About 24 sultans ruled from the Topkapı Palace for nearly four centuries during the Ottoman Empire’s 600-year reign

Personal and Passionate

We (2 adults) had a great experience with Erol on this walking tour. (Dec 2019) Perfect way to start off seeing Istanbul as Erol shared his passion for the city and Turkey’s history as we walked around discussing the iconic structures in Old Town. Also best to do first as receiving up to date information on renovations and best times to visit each place helps sort the following days of your trip. He made the tour personal and did well answering all of our questions.
