Another Istanbul enthusiast here;
Yusuf does not even remember how to become a guide. But he thinks that he has started to make the best of it after so many years. Experienced in most regions of Turkey, Balkan peninsula and Greece. Specializing at alternative routes and bird watching tours in Istanbul.

Recent reviews of this tour guide:
For those seeking a good tour guide, keep looking. For those seeking a GREAT guide, look no further! I highly recommend Yusuf to all. He is not just a great tour guide because he shows you the sites and helps you get to know their history, but because he gets to know YOU and tailors the whole experience to your personality and interests. I'm normally pretty shy but by the end of day 1 of my 3 day tour, it was less like I was on a paid tour and more like I was exploring the city with a friend.
