Walking Tour


Izmir Tour being the third biggest city, Izmir (ancient name Smyrna) is known as the “pearl of Asia Minor” since ancient periods. You will have time to take photo of city when we’ll be on top of the Ancient Asansor Building. While having your morning coffee, you may listen to your guide telling you the history of the area. Your second stop will be the Governmental Agora, dated to the Hellenistic period. It is overly exciting to visit the place where Izmir once governed during the Hellenistic Period.

Antique Bazaar (Kemeraltı) is one of the most crowded quarters of the city. Commercial importance has never decreased since it started in the 18th century. It is going to be a wonderful experience for you to shop for souvenirs. Konak Square is best known for its Clock Tower. The Ancient Asansör Building is situated in a different quarter of the city.

I would be happy to help you discover the city of Izmir and its rich culture with the guidance of a local expert.

Located on the western coast of Turkey, Izmir is the country’s third-largest city and a hub of cultural and economic activity. Its history dates back thousands of years, with evidence of human settlements dating back to the third millennium BC.

One of the best ways to experience the city’s culture is to explore its historic districts, such as Konak, Alsancak, and Karsiyaka. These neighborhoods are home to a variety of architectural styles, including Ottoman-era mansions and Art Nouveau buildings.

One of the most iconic landmarks in Izmir is the Clock Tower, located in the Konak district. Built in 1901, this elegant tower has become a symbol of the city and is a popular spot for tourists and locals alike.

Another must-see attraction in Izmir is the Kemeralti Bazaar, a sprawling market district that has been in operation for centuries. Here, you can find a wide variety of goods, from traditional Turkish textiles and ceramics to modern clothing and electronics.

If you’re interested in history, you might want to visit the Izmir Archaeological Museum, which houses a collection of artifacts from the ancient city of Smyrna, as well as other sites in the region.

Food is also an important part of Izmir’s culture, and there are many local dishes that you won’t want to miss. Some of the most popular dishes include kumru, a type of sandwich made with grilled cheese and sausage, and boyoz, a flaky pastry filled with cheese and served with tea.

Of course, there’s no substitute for the expertise of a local guide when it comes to exploring a new city. A knowledgeable guide can help you navigate the city’s winding streets, provide insights into the local culture, and help you discover hidden gems that you might not otherwise find on your own.

Known since ancient times as the ‘Pearl of the Aegean’, Izmir boasts a rich cultural heritage dating back thousands of years. Explore its enchanting districts such as Konak, Alsancak and Karsiyaka, each dotted with Ottoman-era mansions and Art Nouveau architecture.

    star ratingGreat day out - Our tour guide Esra is very knowledgeable and incredibly friendly. We had a smaller tour group which always great because it gave us the flexibility to ask questions and move around more freely. We were in no way rushed and were given ample time to view all the sites. All in all, an incredible day out and I really would recommend.

    star ratingJourney through time to Asia Minor’s ancient empire… - Well managed, punctual and comfortable tour. Our lovely guide, Esra, was knowledgeable, amicable and engaging. Ephesus itself naturally needs no endorsement because it’s, well, Ephesus. Land of gods, warriors, scholars, priests and royalty
