It was a very beautiful and educational tour, Canan, our tour guide, was awesome!. She has so much knowledge and passion for the history and beauty of Istanbul which made the tour a great experience.

The tour was a great introduction to the historical and even current context of Istanbul/Turkey history. Our guide Selcuk Ersan war very open, well informed and friendly. The way he made the explanations is almost a guarantee that you will remember the historical facts. Also the food for lunch was great. However, if the food that is included is not to your taste, one can choose another one and pay the difference.
It is highly recommended to take advice from Selcuk. Hi favorite dish is A-MA-ZING. Thanks a lot for the great experience!

All of it. We appreciated every turn. Selcuk talked through the ancient history, right up to current times/events. My guess is all the guides with Karavan tours are well qualified.
