A Recent Review of this tour

Aykut was a friendly and engaging guide to Istanbul during the two days we engaged him in mid-August 2017. He knew Turkish history inside and out, and knew his city just as well. His English is superb. When we expressed interest in purchasing one sort of souvenir or another, he took us to places where we wouldn't pay 'tourist prices.' I highly recommend him.
