Ali was a fantastic guide. Tons of positive energy and knowledge. Came before to Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque but a totally different experience and so much richer of an experience to have someone telling you all the stories from 1000+ years ago (and best place to put your shoes)

Amazing tour. Our guide Ali knew everything we wanted to know and was helpful, cared for us, super nice and gave us the best tips for the city. Only bad thing was we couldn’t see the Blue Mosque since it was Friday (they gather to pray so the mosques close early) but it was well replaced with the hippodrome and the cistern. Totally recommend!

Absolutely amazing tour! We were taken on a walking tour around the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sofia, the Grand Bazaar and Spice Market. We were also shown traditional Turkish rug artisans at work, which was fascinating. Our guide, Baris was fantastic - he gave the full history and background of each place visited and answered all our questions. Couldn't have asked for a better tour or guide! Cannot recommend enough :)
