    The tour was very well conducted by Hilal. She proved to be a very experienced guide who could help the group navigate the crowds of tourists at the various sites. She knew when to give members some time to wander around to admire the places and when to gather everyone to elaborate more on the historical backgrounds. I could sense that everyone felt relaxed and comfortable with Hilal and that in turn contributed to a wonderful sense of camaraderie within the group. I would certainly go through this tour again when I revisit Istanbul provided it is conducted by Hilal. Thank you and hope to see you again, Hilal! The "skip-the-queue" arrangement that is provided with this tour is an absolute God-send in terms of avoiding the snaking long queues!
