LET'S CRUISE TOGETHER
Are you a gay man visiting Istanbul for the first time?
Are you a stranger to the gay world of this mysterious
metropolis? You surely need somebody to lead you the way
during your first few days. Somebody who knows what is
going on in the gay world in this city. Somebody who knows
and understands your expectations. Some body who is
just like you.
This tour does not aim to cover everyday of your vacation.
A one-time reservation will normally be enough to help
you continue on your own for the rest of your vacation in
Istanbul. Remember the main idea of the program is to make
an introduction to the gay scene of the city.
We have several experienced English speaking
accompany-guides who have been doing these tours for a
while and who are very experienced about the gay life and
gay venues of Istanbul.
Indeed they will be very useful to you in terms of saving
time and energy, mainly because most of the places are
very difficult to find in Istanbul and the gay culture of
Turkey is fairly different than most of the Western
countries. Besides, very few people speak English
or any other foreign languages in Istanbul and it will be
very difficult for you to communicate with people
especially in your first days.
We are not claiming that it is impossible to find these
venues on your own, but with our guidance it will take a
few hours instead of a few weeks and you will be safer.
Our guides will naturally tell you where to go, but
actually they will also be telling you where not to go,
and what not to do. They will also provide you very useful
tips about about the possible dangers that you may
encounter in a big and cosmopolite city like Istanbul.
