We loved our time exploring Istanbul with Hatice! This tour took us off the beaten path through Muslim, Christian and Jewish neighborhoods. As we toured churches and mosques, Hatice was able to explain great detail about the history, the religion and the art. She tailored the tour to our interests and made fantastic recommendations for the rest of our time in Istanbul. We loved hearing her story and getting to know her as we walked around, and we hope to return someday to do her food tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for this amazing review. It was a true pleasure spending the day with you. You are always welcome in this beautiful city. Hope to see you two soon.
This is our second walking tour with Hatice and even though she was not feeling well, she conducted the tour in a similar enthusiastic manner. This was also a great walking tour and I liked the fact that she incorporated stops to allow us to enjoy Turkish foods in restaurants and cafe's that she herself recommends. Her knowledge of food and also her familiarity of the local area and people made this tour an enjoyable experience. I highly recommend this tour and Hatice as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Timothy, Thank you very much for your great review. It was an absolute joy to guide you through Istanbul's historic streets. I really hope to meet you all again.

Hatice is one of the best tour guides I've ever come across. She is knowledgeable, patient as well as enthusiastic. She showed us around with a lot of interest and care and we had a great time. I would highly recommend her.
