Carole was so open, friendly, smart, and responsive. Please see my above comments. She was extremely knowledgeable. She responded in a kind way to all questions. The walk was perfect; I'd change nothing!
Daniel was the ideal guide - knowledgeable, helpful, friendly. He had a deep love for Turkey and detailed knowledge which he imparted in the best possible way. The only negative on the whole tour was a minor one: taking us to taste profitoroles, even though famous in Istanbul, is not a necessary Turkish experience.
Nurcin was a wonderful person. We enjoyed discussing current issues with her. She also took us to publishing house that translated Psychoanalytic books which was especially interesting for us. I am a psychiatrist and my wife worked in publishing. This is the kind of extra that we have treasured about Context docents.
