Once again Ebru was amazing with her vast wealth of knowledge and how she presents it. And, she does it all with a sense of humor & honesty. We thoroughly enjoyed today. Ebru is a gem!!!
Claire not only possesses substantial knowledge and genuine love for Istanbul's religious, political, and cultural history, but was also sensitive to our needs, questions, and moods. We visited amazing religious sites in diverse neighborhoods, and learned about their relation to Istanbul's—and Turkey's—social fabric and evolution. An enriching experience.
The docent was very enthusiastic. I understand it was her first walk. She had definitely practiced for the tour.
