Isil Aktas

Guide profile:

Merhaba!I am an enthusiastic tour guide and Turkey travel specialist. I am licensed with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and also have a BA degree in Tourism Business and Hotel Management. I have studied Archeology, Mythology, Art History, History and Religion, in order to get a guiding license. I still have a keen interest in all of the above subjects and keeping up with any new discovery that happens in the archeology field in Turkey, as it is such an old country and probably the richest in the world with her Archeological sites, Natural Beauty and Monuments.

I lived all around Turkey through my child and adulthood and have a great passion about my country.I would like my guests to have a local experience and enjoy it as much as I do!

Isil is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. She knows her stuff-We never knew just how interesting Turkey and Istanbul were until we met audio. She is a delight to be with and has an amazing genuine enthusiasm about sharing Istanbul with you. Highly recommended!!!

Tour guide services/sample itinerary:

*Walking or transported tours in Istanbul

I always wanted my clients to explore and experience real Turkey. For that reason I try to add stopping in a local coffee or tea house to get the real taste of Turkey. If they wish I generally take my clients for a walk around downtowns and talk about Turkish life style, customs, cuisine or anything we come across.

Transportation by tour guide:

Yes, transportation can be arranged upon request.

Isil was amazing. She is knowledgeable about her country and very cute. She speaks very fluent English and quite experienced on tour guiding in Turkey. She offered me a flexible tour programme and we felt so comfortable ourselves with her. I highly recommend her to everyone. Thank you so much Isil.

It was a short trip with Isil but I learnt a lot about Turkey. She has great knowledge about the history and she explained very well – quite easy to understand. I was surprised when she took me to the local coffee shop and introduced where I had a chance to try the “Turkish Water Pipe”. It’s awesome. Thanks Isil. JH from Toronto - Canada
