Atakan collected us from our Hotel, the day with him was definitely the best we've experienced. We shared info about Turkey / Istanbul, customs and traditions. Our daughter (age 14) thoroughly enjoyed his guidance. Atakan is an excellent guide and highly recommenced. From our family, Thank You for a lovely experience.
