A Recent Review of this tour

What a treat! It was wonderful to spend an evening with Oguz and his family. Their hospitality, story-telling and food was magnificent. Sitting around the table in his mother's kitchen sharing stories and laughs with Oguz and his brother while the tea brewed was one of the special moments of a few great days in Istanbul.
