How much does a tour guide cost in Istanbul?

A private tour guide in Istanbul will cost you around 170 euros a day, but the price can go up to 250 euros per day. It all depends on where you book the tour and the type of tour you select.

Should I get a tour guide in Istanbul?

We recommend you book a tour guide when exploring Istanbul. The city is very safe and well connected with public transportation, so you won’t necessarily need a tour guide to ‘protect’ you and help you get around, it’s still great to have someone alongside you to tell you all the insights into the city’s history. Although you could get around just fine without one, booking a professional tour guide can be a great add-on, and it will make the experience of exploring Istanbul even more memorable, plus you can find out some amazing facts and tips from an Istanbul local.

How do private tours work?

Private tours allow you to completely adjust the sightseeing itinerary to your wishes and needs. If you go on a private tour, you can choose what attractions you want to visit without having to adjust yourself to an already existing schedule of a guided tour. If you’re booking a private group tour, it means that you will go exploring the city with a smaller group, and your tour guide will have much more time to interact with everyone and answer all of your questions.

Can you tour Turkey on your own?

You can explore the cities on your own, but we would still recommend booking a tour guide, at least for some of the main attractions. Because a guide will tell you much more about the monument or the site you’re visiting, and you will be able to appreciate it more.
