What you'll do

For starters, everything is as personalized as it can get and below you can find the step-by-step details of the experience. The experience will begin when you purchase it, even before you arrive Istanbul. Right after you purchase, I'll contact you and get the details of your musical taste, needs and may be some specifics on which records you're looking for. After I get the details I'll use my contacts and create a tour of at least 5 at most 8 record stores accordingly to your taste and needs. On the day of the tour, we'll meet at a local coffee shop. We'll know each other while drinking a coffee and then I'll explain the personalized tour and how the day will proceed and "so it begins"... Since I know most of the record store owners, that we're gonna visit; I'm going to try to get extra discounts or offers for my guests; but the first tip comes even you purchase my experience; try to use cash, while buying records. While we're having the tour, I'm going to tell you about Kadikoy and how it changed overtime; since I've been living here over 35 years. I've got some good memories and knowledge over the place. The tour will take aprx. 4 hours. We can have coffee or snack break if you desire. At the end of the tour, I'll recommend you some other record stores if you'd like and some places to chill, eat or drink -like locals; and we'll part ways until see each other again...

Learn more about Murat Can

Murat Can

My name is Can. I work as a full-time project manager at a design agency, but that's only the half of the story. I was born, grew up and lived in Kadikoy since. I was always into music -not in a creative way, but as a good listener & I've listened to vinyl since I was a little child with my grandpa, as I started to create my own collection since 2009 (1000+ records and counting). For the past 3 years I've been to other countries for vinyl tourism -over 20 cities & 200 record stores. I met lots of locals and record store owners there. I like to meet and help new people with common interests. I also; - write for a record magazine about new era Greek bands, - play DJ sets occasionally, - play electric guitars (not that good), - am a Floydian, - am a cat father, - like to ride my motorbike, if it's in a good mood to work (loooong story)

What's included

Drinks
The first coffee of the day is on me. We'll have this one together and know each other a bit more for some more recommendatio…

Where you'll be

We'll visit the record stores, which are relevant to your musical taste & needs. The exact stores will be decided, after you send me the details; but the tour will include 5 to 8 record stores. Since we'll also be in historical (and most hype) Kadikoy area of Istanbul, it will be possible for you to take some really nice photos and find nice pubs, restaurants or design stores as well.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 4 guests ages 15 and up can attend. Any local experiences -good or bad- with record stores from other countries/cities are welcome. Also a bit of musical taste... ;)

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

Since we're going to walk -I mean probably a lot- it's crucial that you're going to be up for this. You'll definitely need comfortable shoes and the correct gear for the weather of the season; on which I might help you when you purchase the experience. Besides those, ask me anything and I'll help.
