Really great tour that helped all of our group get an insight into the city of Istanbul, regardless of our previous knowledge. Loved that it spanned across both distant and recent history. Also the guide was super helpful in giving us lots of recommendations for the rest of our stay. Thanks again!
Anna was great -- knowledgeable and personable. I thoroughly enjoyed her company and all the insights she provided into the history of the city overall as well as for the particular area we walked. I also liked getting to know her background and how she came to be in Istanbul. The personal touch really add a lot.
Claire was especially successful for us because she listened to our questions, answered them right away (No "just wait - we're going to talk about that later") and she adapted the tour to our interests. Maybe because she's American and so are we, she could really talk about Istanbul in a way that made sense to us. She was a real superstar!
