Guide profile:

Hello,

My name is Dilek Arman.I was born in the city called Bolu which is famous for its chefs and all the male members of my family are chefs.

That's why I am interested in eating and cooking tours.

I am 16 years experienced tour guide and I live in the old city.I am specalized in Jewish Heritage and Christian Heritage tours.As a local in Istanbul, I know the city, the history, architecture, local restaurants and local life. I am especially interested in Byzantine and Ottoman History.. I studied 'History' at the Istanbul University. I am a Gemini woman so i am talkative and cheerful person.

As a fan of Fenerbahce, I love watching soccer and basketball.

If you want to visit our magnificent city, learn about its history and taste the local food, I will be glad to guide you in Istanbul.

My wife and I enjoyed a tremendous 8 hour private walking tour of central Istanbul with Dilek on Nov 2. She has a deep knowledge of Turkish sites & history and shares it in an interesting way. Her English is excellent. We saw everything we hoped to, and Dilek was flexible on adjusting the itinerary to our interests. Definitely recommend.

We had a wonderful 8 hour walking tour of the Old Town in Istanbul with Dilek on 23rd October, 2014. She was able to keep my 16 and 11 year old sons interested in Turkish and European history for the entire time, which is quite an accomplishment! She took the tour at our pace without rushing us thru the sights. I highly recommend her.

Dilek was wonderful. She gave an 8 hour tour to myself and my daughter Bella (16 years old). She was highly informative giving a thorough overview of Istanbul and the main sites whilst managing to keep us both interested - not an easy task! The time flew past, and we were sorry to part with her at the end of the day. She is a great guide, and I recommend her!

Dilek Arman was wonderful! It was like traveling around Istanbul with a good friend, which was exactly what I was looking for. She was helpful and informative about all of the sites, and she was very flexible on the schedule and working in what I wanted to see an do. I highly recommend her!
