Fatih is one of the most fascinating neighborhoods of the Old City of Istanbul. Crowded, popular, poorer than rich, full of great eateries and cafe'...

It is home to students and youngsters, religious fundamentalists, Syrians and other middle eastern refugees, houses of dervishes, Kurdish markets, Greek quarter turned hipster...each in their neighborhood, next to each other in an unlikely cohabitation.
Quite incredibly such a n interesting place is almost totally ignored by tourists that come to visit this city.

Fatih ist gar nicht weit weg von der Altstadt und doch eine ganz eigene Welt. Man ist nicht besonders lang oder weit unterwegs bei dieser Tour, aber Miko kennt sich bestens aus, weiß Hintergrundinformationen gut zu vermitteln und kennt auch noch tolle Restaurants und Cafés. Die Moschee ist auch toll. Alles in allem ein sehr schöner Abend, bei dem ich mich zudem mit Süßigkeiten eindecken konnte. Ich würde sofort wieder eine Tour mit Miko buchen.

We really enjoyed the walking tour with Miko. We had already seen some of the main sites of Istanbul, and this tour took us places that we would have not otherwise thought to go. We learned a lot about the history of Turkey, Kurdish culture, Syrian refugees, and even a little about Islam (and of course, we ate some delicious food along the way). His explanations of everything really helped us connect the dots when it comes to the city's history, especially since we had forgotten so much from our history classes years ago! Miko spent his evening with us, graciously sharing his knowledge of all things food and history and guiding us around Fatih.
