As of today, anyone can organize and book things to do in Istanbul, and we couldn’t be happier about it! Istanbul is the first city that’s been launched in the name of “Unlock your City!”, and there are many more to come soon. Stay tuned…

For now, take a look at these great events happening in Istanbul: 

  • Alternative Istanbul, from Bridge to Bar, with Dennis. Escape the main streets, and visit the alternative side of Istanbul with a local, from the best restaurants and bars to stunning historical sights 
  • Street photography workshop, with Arjen. Improve your photography skills, and get inspired by the street scenes found off the beaten path.
  • A day of pampering, with Birgit. This one is for the ladies! Treat yourself to a relaxing day at the spa. 
  • Early evening bar hopping, with Gokcen. Get a taste of Istanbul’s nightlife in your choice of neighbourhood. Visit 5 different bars, and enjoy a drink at each stop. Who’s ready for a great night out?

Now what are you waiting for? Istanbul’s got plenty going on, and this is only just the beginning!

Gidsy’s coming to visit!
We’re so excited about the Istanbul launch that we’ll even be sending some of our team to visit! Our CEO Edial as well as Frieda & Katie from the Community team will be strolling the streets this coming weekend. If you’re in Istanbul on May 12th, we’ll also be hosting a fun meetup (location TBD - know anywhere fun?) and would love to see you there. Feel free to RSVP on Facebook if you’d like to join us on Saturday!
