Safiye is a super friendly guide, and is cheerful and chirpy no matter the time of day. She met us punctually at port with a pre-arranged vehicle to bring us to our hotel. The day and a half-day walking tour of Istanbul was good. It was a pure introduction to the city, and Safiye pointed out places to re-visit on our own time. She brought us along fascinating alleys we otherwise would not have seen on our own. Her knowledge of food is remarkable, we enjoyed her company tremendously.
