Our review with Metin was excellent! He provided so many interesting facts and was a really fun guide -- very friendly and humorous! We'd definitely recommend this tour!

I HIGHLY recommend this tour. Metin is a great guide who speaks perfect English and knows both the history and current culture of Istanbul well. He is funny, but not in a way that distracts from the information he is sharing. Great value as well.
