“The Other Tour,” established in 2011, offers an immersive and comprehensive exploration of Istanbul.

This full-day adventure bypasses the usual historical landmarks, instead delving into the city’s dynamic local neighborhoods and cultural vibrancy.

Highlights include a captivating Bosphorus cruise, authentic home-cooked meals, enlightening school visits, a rejuvenating Turkish bath experience, and lively music and dance sessions, making The Other Tour a truly unique journey through Istanbul’s hidden gems.

The Other Tour is a little bit different each and every time anyway. But a big yes, we would love your input! We thrive on new ideas and adventures.

But first, please read our 2024 Itinerary and let’s start customizing together.

We provide full-spectrum travel agency services both for Istanbul and the rest of Türkiye.

Check out all our services.

So if you need any advice on traveling in Istanbul or the rest of Türkiye, you can get in touch with us anytime.

The Other Tour has the easiest booking process in the world. You just let us know when you want to do it – and when we confirm, you just show up on the pre-determined time and location. That’s it. No deposits, no hassle. You may bring cash on the day of the event and receive your receipt.

Yes, absolutely. They usually love it more than the adults!

Our lunch in a Turkish home and dinner at the restaurant will have abundant food for vegetarians. How about vegans? We promise to do our absolute best 🙂 but it’s best you let us know beforehand.

Everything will be provided, you don’t have to bring anything but your smile. (cheesy alert) However, bringing swim gear is recommended for female participants.

You may bring spare clothes for dinner. You will have the chance to change in your room in the Turkish bath.

Yes, absolutely. Many participants in the past have skipped the Turkish bath and we have always managed to replace that hour with a fun activity such as exploring the neighborhood and having pre-dinner drinks in a bar nearby.

Thank you but that’s not necessary at all – so please don’t be bothered. But if you really really want to, past experience tells us that the kids at school mostly enjoy picture books and interesting CDs and DVDs (as in the schools we visit usually have projectors in the classrooms)

No, the rain got nothing on us! 🙂
