A Recent Review of this tour

We are so glad to have selected Aykut to introduce us to the beautiful city of Istanbul! Upon learning it was our first visit, he completely changed the itinerary so we could see all of the top sites. We can not recommend him enough and hope to visit and tour with Aykut again!
