in Istanbul

Having lived in İstanbul for two decades, New York–born photographer Monica Fritz now shares many of the secrets she has learned about the city with fellow shutterbugs. Her informed and enjoyable tour portfolio covers the European and Asian shores and beyond, and she provides plenty of cultural and historical context.

Popular tours include one that introduces participants to the hidden hans (caravanserais) and passageways of the Grand Bazaar, as well as taking to the roof à la James Bond in Skyfall. Other destinations include the streets surrounding the Süleymaniye Mosque in the Old City, and the suburbs of Kadıköy, Kuzguncuk and Moda on the Asian side.
