For İstanbul
A god and a beauty of history, a taboo 
A miracle of sun and water, a secret surely eternal, this is İstanbul
It's us who are wasted away... Our hearts

Ahmet Muhip Diranas

İstanbul is a bridge connecting two different worlds; the East and The West. It is the West at the extremity of the East, the East at the epilogue of the West. İstanbul is a melting pot where Eastern and Western civilizations have been blended together. It is composed of Western Anatolian and Hellenistic cultures upon which Roman culture was grafted. Added to this are traces of Chinese, Indian and Persian cultural influences and Altaic Turkish mythology and Islamic Legends. It embraces Pagan, Christian and Muslim religions - the cradle of three cultural components. Not only is it the crossroads of the past for the East and West, it is also the future, an intersection point.

As the proud pioneers of Strolling Through İstanbul Tours®, we can provide unique experiences on basically any theme requested. We can tailor made and curate private tours in every corner of İstanbul, even underground. Private visits to mansions, renowned Ottoman Imperial Palaces, cruising along the Bosphorous, market tours, Bazaars, food delights and experiencing the city like a local.

We are experts in curating tours all over Turkey from East to west, north to South. Covering all possible cultures that Anatolia has to offer. Our specialized customized itineraries varies and fluctuates according to the needs of our travellers.

We are here for you to perceive more than what you see.


Hotels in key cities throughout our speciality region are often comparable to those in major American or European cities. However, when traveling outside major cities, differences among hotels of the same rating can be striking. Thus, travellers must be selective. Primarily, FEST Travel specialises in all star hotel programs, allowing us to offer competitive prices. At the same time, we are rapidly increasing our activity with deluxe and boutique, historical (renovated) hotels, where we can offer competitive rates as well.

Local Professional Guides

FEST Travel truly believes in the importance of guide services for the success of any tour. Therefore, we provide "the very best". In most cases, our guides have at least fifteen years of experience and are licensed by the Ministry of Tourism. They all have bachelor or master's degrees in their related fields like history, art, sociology, politics, etc.; knowledgeable and experienced with all types of clients; and regardless of the destination, they are measured by the same highest standard rankings. USA Representatives, Senators, Ex-Presidents, authors like Dan Brown and actors.

FEST Travel operates its hired coaches. Most of them are very new, with brand names such as Mercedes or Mitsubishi coaches. Normally, for groups of 14 or more and on the escorted tour itineraries, the buses are deluxe, equipped with air conditioning. With smaller groups, air-conditioned mini-buses are used.
