Highlight of our trip

Tolga was a wonderful guide. We would recommend his tour service. He was friendly, knowledgeable, kind and patient and connected the tour to the backdrop of the various empires that have ruled the area. We felt so much more connected to this amazing city as a result of the tour. Gave us tips and offered his opinion of various other Istanbul sites. Very convenient meeting place near the Hagia Sophia Hotel in Old Istanbul. The tour takes you through the surrounding area with lots of great information and stories even including movie references for the movies shot in the area. We take lots of walking and biking tours when we travel and this tour ranks near the top.
