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.

Burak, created such a special evening for my guests and I. Accommodating me being a vegetarian for dinner. Very easy to communicate with from the moment picking us up to dropping us off for the evening. This evening I will never forget. Thank you so much

Burak was great and led two very special, personalized experiences for me-- horse back riding and dervish show! I would highly recommend booking with him, especially if you're traveling solo. It's a great way to learn about the city, history and experience things.

This was an amazing experience. Burak really goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and make this experience special. He had great knowledge about the Dervish. We had great conversations and made it enjoyable for someone who has never been to Istanbul before. He accommodated all my wants and his private transportation service was extremely reliable. This experience was absolutely the best decision I made.

We are so thankful to Burak for an amazing experience in Istanbul. It was so much more than just taking us to traditional dancing show. Prior to our arrival we received a message with very useful information on taxis, shopping and dining, things everyone should know prior to visiting Istanbul, especially if its your first time, which it was for us. Burak picked us up at our Airbnb took us to the show, we had super delicious dinner after, a very local and tasty place. After a walk through neighborhood we lived in and rooftop he took us after, was something out of Alladin. The view was spectacular!!! A place we would have never found ourselves. Burak dropped us off at our apt. We had so much fun, and felt like were just hanging out with a local, not a tour guide! We recommend Burak and his experience of Istanbul to everyone who likes to truly experience local culture, food and cute neighborhoods. Burak is super friendly, honest and trustworthy. Even after the tour he recommended great places to visit and places to eat. We even booked a boat tour for the next day. Thank you Burak!

Hi Everyone, I had an awesome time having Burak as my host. Although the Dervish show was cancelled due to the pandemic, Burak accommodated other experiences. We took a walk in Karakoy, went to the Hagia Sophia (absolutely gorgeous), had dinner and stopped by to get some street food. We also did the Yacht ride on the Bosphorus which was very pretty. It was very cold and he was kind enough to stop by a shop so I can purchase some gloves. Also, for the record, I am a solo traveler so, if you are thinking that as woman it’s not safe, please don’t feel that way. I felt completely safe and comfortable. And he takes the COVID-19 precautions seriously which is a good thing.
