First we will meet at Karaköy Pier and make a 20 minutes ferry trip to Kadıköy where we will have a chance to see the beautiful views of Bosphorus. After we arrive at Kadıköy, our first stop will be the "Boğa Heykeli" ("bull statue") which is the one of the main meeting points for locals. Then through Bahariye Street following the historical tram line, we will pass by the historical opera building, Aya Triada Greek Orthodox Church and many other attraction points, so on we will reach Moda which has a beautiful ness where we will enjoy splendid view of Marmara Sea with the complimentary Turkish tea in a local tea garden! After this short break we will continue walking through Moda and reach the Old Market Place where you will be able to look at many authentic shops. Our tour will end at a chilling rooftop bar which is close to the Old Market Place where we will enjoy another beautiful view over İstanbul together. Throughout the tour I will be sharing my knowledge about the history of Kadıköy and its evolving nature in recent years and will be happy to answer all your questions.
Hello everyone! My name is Barış! I'm 27 years old and I've been living in İstanbul - Kadıköy since I was born so I consider myself a true İstanbulian :) I graduated from İstanbul University's History Department and currently doing my masters degree at the same place! Since I've been a student of History, I've been organizing walking tours for international groups around the city. At the same time I'm working full - time in an international NGO which is working on international voluntary exchanges and this made me gain a lot of experience on international communication. I'm looking forward to share the knowledge of this amazing city and experiences of mine with you in Kadıköy which is one of the most beautiful districts in İstanbul!
