What you'll do

This is the first Karting Experience in Istanbul and you will be hosted #1 reviewed Experience Host in Istanbul.

The "per-person" fee ($50) above is for groups of more than 10 people. You should choose "Book for Private Group" to see the Private Experience fee and contact for discounts if you are a solo traveler or couple.

With Private Booking, I will personally pick you up from your place and we will first go to the Historical Car Museum. Here, we will attend an exhibition of historical cars and various vehicles.

After learning the car history, we will go to the longest INDOOR Karting Track in Istanbul. (outdoor track is also available with an additional fee since it is far from the city center). We will have a Karting Challenge and all safety items will be provided. We will also have a chance to play airsoft guns, ping pong, and other kid-friendly attractions.

Later on, I will take you to my neighborhood to have lunch/dinner together - in a restaurant that my parents love going to on special occasions like one of us has a birthday, or on a nice summer evening. Finally, I will personally drop you off at your place.

Optional Experience: Depending on availability, I can organize a ride on the F1 circuit in Istanbul Park, and here you can have a Circuit Challenge driving experience on the Formula 1 circuit. It is optional and depends and your skill.

Stay fast!

This is Burak, the #1 reviewed Experience Host in Istanbul with my CoHost, Volkan. I am also Airbnb Experiences Istanbul Community Leader and full-time Experience Host. My priority is to provide high-quality moments and I specialize in hosting Private Experiences.

I graduated from International Relations, worked in Krakow/Poland. Later on, I moved back to Istanbul and started organizing Experiences.

I organized trips for university exchange students to Cappadocia, Fethiye, Ephesus, Uludag Ski Resort and I organize these trips privately now. My main goal is to organize unique Experiences - not mainstream ones.

I will be here, for you - not only during my Experience but also during your whole stay in Istanbul. You can ask me any questions you have and I will do my best to help you.

This was a good bonding activity with my sons. Burak took really good care of us. He communicated very well and was flexible with the arrangements. He ensured that we are ok all throughout the experience and having a good time. We had the chance to see a local market on the way, try Turkish specialities like Adana kebab and Sec Baklava. The go karting was fun.. gave us a glimpse of where locals hangout. I even enjoyed a game of table tennis. It was a very fun day overall capped with a visit to a rooftop with an amazing view. Burak has provided us more information for our remaining days in Istanbul. Thanks for a really good time, Burak.

This was our best day in Istanbul so far! Not only we went to the super cool museum and tried karting for the first time - we also made a new friend - Burak! He's truly the reason you should try this experience - living almost all his life in Istanbul he's super knowledgeable about the city's current state and history - he told us all about the best spots and experiences, busted few myths and told few really cool stories. The museum was really entertaining with enormous collection of different vehicles. Karts were in good condition, the track was perfect and the layout was pretty challenging and fun. Burak safely driven us to all the locations while entertaining us with great conversations and took all safety precautions to deliver one of the smoothest experiences we've ever had on Airbnb. Overall this is a great value and SUPER fun time - totally recommended! Especially to people who love cars, racing or that are willing to try karting for the first time. 11 out of 10. We loved it so much!

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic day! As a Turkish person living in Poland, I wouldn’t be able to arrange such a private experience by myself and it was one of the best birthday gift I had from my gf. Burak picked us up from our Airbnb and we visited a fantastic museum with cars and other vehicles. Later on we went to the Karting Track which was the longest track in whole Turkey. Before Burak took us to our place, we had a traditional Turkish kebap from a local restaurant. Definitely recommended if you’re into Motorsport, history of vehicles and great connection.

Burak make fast arrangement for me and my wife in Istambul. Everything was organized on high level: he took us from our place just in time, he was polite and concentrated on us. He is really high professional. At the same time it was quite expensive for that kind of experience. We paid about 1300 TRY for 2 race 10 minutes for two people, also Burak picked up us from our place and after karting get back us to place regarding our request. In karting center each 10 minutes race per person cost 40 TRY. So in case if we go ther without Burak we paid 160 TRY + Taxi (200 TRY max) + Lunch (50 TRY max). Total 410 TRY instead of 1300 TRY. Maybe I do not understanding something. But for me it is too much profit. Anyway Burak was nice, fun and we had a good experience. But next time we will arrange same thing by ourselves. :)

I decided to join this as a private experience after my first tour with Burak. After he picked me up from my place, we went to a really nice car museum that you can also see other vehicles. I wanted to try karting so he showed the options to me: The first one was an open-air carting track out of the city and the second one was an indoor carting track nearby. Since the second one was the longest in Turkey, I decided to try the second one. It was really fun and exciting for me! I hope to try Formula 1 track next time I am in Istanbul! Great job, Burak!

Last month, I had the good fortune to have a day in Istanbul with Burak as my guide to this wonderful city. Everything went excellently, text messages beforehand and I was collected from my hotel on time. Then taken to a fabulous transport museum, really impressed with the quality, size and variety of all the exhibits (would definitely recommend to everyone even if not interested in motorsport). After a few enjoyable hours and some light refreshments we then headed off to an indoor karting track. My first time on an indoor track, mind you I had only been karting twice before and many years ago. A long track (1700 metres) and well organised, we had two sessions with a break in between. lt brought back happy memories and nurtured the inner child ;). Learnt so much about the city and Turkey in whole. I would wholeheartedly recommend Burak who is both enthusiastic and knowledgeable , best experience in lstanbul by far. Burak,all the best and l will see you again when the dust settles!
