A Recent Review of this tour

Safiye is FABULOUS! I 1st booked Safiye 2 yrs ago, for a 4hr layover tour by public transportation for 2 travelers. I didn't book her last year, and regretted it terribly. This time, I booked her Istanbul City tour by private transport for 12. The bus was comfy & held all our luggage easily. Safiye's charming demeanor, excellent English, deep knowledge of local lore, as well as her incredible flexibility made her a hit with the group. I have used many guides with TBL and rate Safiye as one of the best!
