A TripAdvisor Review:
The Other Tour is not a tour. It is a detour. A detour from mainstream tourism. It is a great detour from the touristic sights of the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace etc., allowing you to immerse yourself for a short while into the Turkish way of life. Fethi gives a lot of himself by inviting you into his family home and life. He is not your guide. He is your friend for the day as you walk and talk and eat and experience Istanbul life.

The Other Tour, Istanbul, Turkey by Bryan Long
“I made this short video to compare the typical Istanbul tourist perspective with what I experienced on The Other Tour.”
The Muslim world receives a staggering amount of negative press in Western countries. Over the past summer I had the chance to spend a month in an incredibly vivid and spectacularly beautiful Islamic country. One of my most memorable days in Turkey was spent on The Other Tour — a cultural journey throughout Istanbul that takes travelers into neighborhoods, restaurants, and markets that are typically only visited by locals. I made this short video to compare the typical Istanbul tourist perspective with what I experienced on The Other Tour. I made this because I felt that more Westerners deserve to see the other side of the Muslim world — the rich flavors, vivid textures, beautiful music, delicious food, and incredible people.
