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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your great words.

Hanifi was Fantastic. He was very enthusiastic and you can tell he loves giving tours. We learned so much about Istanbul, the Muslim and Christian influence, the various past empires and the beautiful Turkish culture. He was very patient as we took in as much as we could and he answered all our questions. He had a great sense of humor and we enjoyed having lunch with him in a Turkish cafe. We felt fortunate to have him as our guide and really enjoyed the day with him.

Owing to limited time left in Istanbul and to my mother's special needs, I contacted Hanifi. He was always helpful and considerate and patient with my mother and has a wicked sense of humour and is a very positive person. Hanifi also went out of his way to help us and to take us to places, including one particular pickle shop he had not heard of. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Hanifi even tried, unsuccessfully, to teach me how to fly from the top of Galata Tower.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: :) thanks for your words and your comment. If the weather had been better that day, you would have flown.
