Claire was an amazing guide. Very knowledgeable and engaging. She went out of her way to make us have an amazing experience.
Ebru was a fantastic guide, her tour included a right amount of historical context for us to appreciate the Hagia Sophia for its significance in history, culture, religion, and art/architecture. She also provided us with insight on modern day Istanbul political and religious perspectives.
We enjoyed spending 3 hours speaking with and learning from Ebru. She brought the past to life both outside and within the Hagia Sophia. A great addition to our first trip to Istanbul.
