(Note: professional guides provide their services for a fee. Although they welcome inquiries about scheduling and availability of their services, they expect to be paid when they provide tourism information. You may be asked to arrange payment before questions are answered. Also, if you reserve a guide’s time in advance, you may be asked to arrange credit card payment at the time of reservation, just as for a hotel room, rental car, or flight. Please note that guides are not travel agents, and are not licensed to make reservations or other travel agency services.—Tom Brosnahan)
I have been working in tourism for 21 years and as a professional tour guide for 17. I have always believed that I was born for this job. I wanted to become a tour guide to meet new people who I can pass on my culture, history, and lifestyle as a Turkish woman. In return, I get to meet different people and hear their unique stories every day. Additionally, Istanbul is a great location to have a good time with guests. Working as a tour guide is more than a job for me, it’s a pleasure.
