Great guide and very knowledgeable.

We had such a great experience, the guide was so knowledgeable and had an explanation for every single place and event that occurred in that place. He gave us some advice on the places we should visit in Istanbul and how to get to them and what to do.
He speaks good English and was so nice and kind.
We had our tour on Wednesday, August 14th 2019 starting 1:00 p.m.
Unfortunately, I do not know his name. If someone could provide me with his name, I would really appreciate it.
I would redo it with him again if I have the chance to visit Istanbul again.
Keep up the great work.

Superb tour

Erol was a very knowledgeable and passionate tour guide. He really cared about the places we visited and took care to make sure that we knew and understood everything about the Hagia Sophia and the Topkapi palace. I have been on many walking tours and I have to say that Erol is one of the best tour guides we have had and I would definitely recommend this tour or any tour Erol happens to be leading.
