Ebru taught us so much and was a truly wonderful guide. This was not just the usual tour! We learned so much history and also so much about contemporary Istanbul. This tour really enriched our experience of this amazing city. We're so glad we did it!
See the comments about Ebru for the Mosque walk. She was fabulous on this walk as well.
Ebru was a great guide - friendly and knowledgeable and endlessly full of asides about Istanbul. There were only 4 of us, so it felt like going out with a group of friends rather than a tour group. We lost track of the time and took quite a bit longer to finish our tour than we expected, but we were thankful for it. More than Istanbul's Asian side, I felt this tour was about the history of minority religions in the city and their interaction over the centuries. Fascinating insight.
