A Recent Review of this tour

Emre was a wonderful guide. We have traveled extensively and prepare in advance, trying to learn about the countries to which we travel, so we wanted a guide who could give us in-depth information and insight into the history and culture of Istanbul and Turkey. Emre was great about answering questions, and spending a lot of time in the sights we wanted to see. His detailed explanations of Chora Church and Suleiman's Mosque were captivating. We highly recommend him.
