A Recent Review of this tour

Touring with Hanifi was like visiting an old friend who knew everything about his surroundings. In addition to learning so much about the incredible sites in Istanbul, we shared philosophy on everything from politics and religion (normally dangerous territory) to family life. And we shared lots of laughs. I highly recommend Hanifi to anyone who wants to take their tour to a different level.
