OPOS Tours and Travel was established by Sonja Goodwin Tanner and Christopher Prescott. Both owners are enrolled Native American Tribal members. Together they formed OPOS Tours and Travel in the hopes of sharing ‘Our People Our Story’ with the rest of the world.
We want people to see beyond what may have been published and taught by others about all cultures of the world.
OPOS then expanded to Turkey where we, Gokhan Dogan and Sara Korukcu, experts in Tourism sector, manage the branch located in the heart of Old Istanbul.
We share the same passion as Chris and Sonja and thus we are committed to offering people from around the world the ideal opportunity to experience the best of Turkey. From rich history and culture residing in every corner of Istanbul, the once Byzantine and Ottoman empires’ capital, to the unspoiled nature and magnificent scenery in the numerous UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Turkey such as Cappadocia and Pamukkale. Our aim is to help you enjoy Turkey’s unique ambience where the east meets the west and Europe crosses paths with Asia.
We offer a variety of custom, private and general tours to the interest of everyone. From Daily City Tours in the charming city of Istanbul to all regions of Turkey. We will guide you through our lands, into our culture, our languages, our foods, to hear our story as can only be know by us.
Our guides will share our stories and teach the rich story and wisdoms of our people which remains relevant as today as it was thousands of years ago.
Our tailor made tours offer you the choice to meet with the one of our Cultural Amabassadors to help you design your own tour. In addition to tourism, we organize conferences and meetings for various organizations and businesses.
We have developed a loyal client-base and earned a good reputation for the diversity in our tours. We are IATA certified with an ARC license and a member of the Association of Turkish Travel Agencies (TURSAB).
