Had a wonderful tour of Istanbul! Hanif was very knowledgeable, friendly and informative. Took us to the Blue Mosque, the Grand Bizarre, Aya Sofya, Topkapi Palace. It was great having a personal guide, he scheduled all of our visits to miss the bulk of the tourists. My only regret is that we didn't go to an authentic Turkish restaurant for lunch.
