Tours in Istanbul
and all around Turkey

Steps of life…

We are Lale and Kagan Kosagan.
Lale received her professional tour guiding license in 1989, a year before Kagan.

If not any but in all these years, we learned and later on practiced ‘one’ for clear:
” Seeing things from the eyes of our guests “.

Working for others long years, came a time when we both felt overqualified and started to run our own travel business, mostly on private basis.
In an unexpectedly short time, we were not able to accept all tour requests and this is when we evolved from a wife-husband team to a much larger team of tour guides; tour guides with highest service standards.

Turkey wih Kagan

And if you intend to be our guide, our invitation certainly extends to your husband if he is interested.  Paige and I have never had our own business and we are curious as to how the two of you have managed to jointly operate your travel company without killing each other.  :>)
