I am Ilknur, in short way, you can call me Nur. I graduated from Kocaeli University, tourist guidance department and have been living in Istanbul last 7 years. I am a professional, licensed tourist guide in Istanbul which is my favourite city, working as a freelance guide last 4 years.

I would be more than happy to meet with you and assist you anything about you are interested in. If you want to visit this marvelous city, I am ready to share everything I know about history, culture or modern life & will do my best to make your holiday a memorable one.
Recent reviews of this tour guide:
Ilknur has managed to take us to so many places, in such a short time! Her knowledge of the history and culture is undeniably fantastic and the small anecdotes always a pleasure to listen to. She has as well taken us to small hidden gems and made us feel part of Istanbul’s culture (at least part of it). Ilknur is an excellent guide that I would advise all my friends to book. I have to confess that I am planning to come back here for a longer stay and will definitely book her again.

Reviews of this tour – by clients who booked!
One of the best guides in Istanbul.
To stand in the center of the Blue Mosque and swim in the beauty of its interior was a spiritual experience. To listen to her voice as she unraveled its history was sheer pleasure.
She showed me the places that everyone goes to Istanbul to see. But it was the other experiences that linger in my memory. Like eating and relaxing at the places where no other tourist could be found.
My gratitude to Miss TirKaz for showing me the real Istanbul.
