Yet, one of the houses of the lower part of the same hill is opened up as "The Museum of Innocence" with all the setting to the novel and the period items, lovable collectibles from 1970's Istanbul.

Oguz led us on a tremendous tour. He customized the tour so that we could see the sunset on the Bosphorus! His seeming effortless mastery of history, architecture, culinary and culture helped to bring Instanbul to life. We navigated so much of the city in just a few hours with ease. His quick wit and creativity made it fun as well. I'd recommended him hands down. The next time we are in Istanbul, he will be the first person I contact.
