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.
Claire informed us about all sorts of subjects and was very knowledgeable and nice. Answered all our questions.
