This tour was amazing and perfect to explore Istanbul! I booked this tour as it was my first time travelling to Istanbul and I wanted to make sure I see all the highlights in a secure way. The tour guide Zefer was very professional and caring. Due to Covid I was the only one on the tour and Zefer adapt very well and made my tour feel like a private tour. I really recommend this tour!!
