I'm a city information officer in Istanbul. As a local of Istanbul, I have been giving tours of the city in my free time to friends, family and other visitors who have seeked to see the city in a different light. Also, I have a strong passion about the culture and history of my city. I am really excited to share Turkish bath ( hammam) rituels and food culture which have a great importance in our culture. Turkish hammam, an ancient practice of rejuvenation, is a must experience in Istanbul It has become a wellness treatment for locals, as well as a special experience for foreigners. Locals visit hammam at least once a month. See... Hear... Feel...Smell.. and Taste Istanbul with my experience. PS. Ladies are welcomed if they accept to enter the ladies section of hammam on their own without me. Other activities will be together.
