A Recent Review of this tour

An amazing guide. Neslihan not only makes Istanbul come alive with her knowledge, she is a fantastic companion to have on your trip! Touring the city by walking and public transport gave me the confidence to explore on my own as well. Skip the lines, enjoy the local food, feel at home in Istanbul. If you want to really know this city, Neslihan is your guide.
