  • Description


    Hello everybody,

    I am Sara(33) and my work/life partner is Gokhan(29). We are a young couple, owning a travel agency in İstanbul. It is located in the old city, Sultanahmet (Hippodrome). We live on the top floor of the work place.
    We opened the agency in 2016 and still are in need some help to develop it.
    We need Russian/Spanish speaking people (on addition to English) to help us communicate with travelers. We also need someone that knows how to usewordpress and can help us out finishing our web-site. In exchange we will offer excursions and help them travel around Turkey.

    We prefer people that will stay for min. 1 month.

    They will have the possiblity to visit all the cultural and historical places in İstanbul and around. As these tours will all be done with local professional guides, they will learn the history of this beautiful country.
    Since the volunteer will be staying with us, we will give all the cultural info about where to eat the best local food and where to hang out according to his/her interest :)

  • Help


    We need some help in our travel agency for webmaster works; helping with developing our website, promoting it online by social media sources, etc. You don't need to be a professional webmaster but a bit of WordPress knowledge would be perfect.

    Also, advanced or native English speaker is what we need because we will have to let edit some articles and it would be great to get some ideas from a foreigner as we might not see things from the same perspective.

  • Accommodation


    We are providing a private room in our appartment on the top floor. So, the appartment will be shared with us.
    You can use the kitchen and livingroom which has an amazing view on the hippodrome and blue mosque.
    As our home is on the top floor, we usually prepare our own breakfast, lunch and dinner. So you are welcome to join us anytime as long as you help out cleaning the table :)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are located very central, so you can do anything from here. All of the most famous historical sights are just 5min walk distance and the local transportation (tram, bus) is just 3-5min away.
    Taksim (night life) is just 15-20 min away. And when you are too late to take the tram, the taksi won't cost more then 25tl.
    Grand Bazaar and Spice Bazaar just 10/15min walk distance.
    Blue mosque in front of the office :)
    Basilica cistern & Santa Sofia 5 min.
    Topkapı palace & Archaeological Museum 7min.
    Walk down for 5min and the Bosphorus is in front of your eyes!,
    Puclic transportation in İstanbul is the best way to go somewhere.
    There are connections to the tram and very accessable.
    After 3 stops, you arrive in Sirkeci/Eminönü from where you can take the ferry to the Asian side.
    Siekeci is where you can get the Metro to go to the asian side under the busphorus sea.
    Easy peasy! ;)
