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.
Ebru was just the kind of guide we wanted: super informative with a real depth of knowledge and amazing English. She was just perfect and we loved every minute of our tour with her. If you are looking for historical depth, this is the person you need. Brilliant. Thank you Ebru.
Context never disappoints, and Ebru was totally amazing! She gave me this tour, and also Istanbul's Magnificent Mosques. Ebru is so knowledgeable and obviously passionate about her topics, that I am grateful to have met her. I learned so much about the incomparable Hagia Sophia, as well as the broader history of the Ottoman Empire and Islam itself. Easily the highlight of my fantastic trip to Turkey. Thank you!
