The traveler sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see. –Gilbert K. Chesterton
Istanbul’s premier culture tour
experience this city,
the way she deserves:
THE OTHER TOUR
The Other Tour is not a tour. It is a detour. A detour from mainstream tourism. It is a great detour from the touristic sights of the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace etc., allowing you to immerse yourself for a short while into the Turkish way of life. Fethi gives a lot of himself by inviting you into his family home and life. He is not your guide. He is your friend for the day as you walk and talk and eat and experience Istanbul life. –A TripAdvisor Review
We set out to experience a special day in life with a simple goal in mind: showing travelers the real Istanbul. Starting from March 2016, The Other Tour takes place every day of the week!
The Other Tour was established in early 2011 and since then, we have had thousands of participants from all across the planet who seek to catch a glimpse into the local culture and cuisine instead of just seeing the famous touristy attractions.
It is a unique tour like no other, offering a fresh look into Istanbul that has been often referred to as profound.
We don’t believe in providing a step-by-step, hour-by-hour guide to what your day on The Other Tour will be like. An itinerary of that nature simply wouldn’t do the experience justice. However, you may read our itinerary to learn about the activities we engage in on The Other Tour.
TRAVEL FAR ENOUGH
YOU WILL MEET YOURSELF.
