We had an 8hr layover in Istanbul, arriving too late to take advantage of traditional tours (4:45pm). With no Turkish language background, navigating on our own would have been impossible. Safiye escorted us to Istanbul by metro. This saved time vs. braving rush hour by car. We were able to visit the Grand Bazaar, have dinner, and enjoy photo ops at many of Istanbul's historic sites. Safiye was charming, knowledgeable and professional. Have already recommended her to friends traveling this year!
