    We had an energizing, entertaining full-day tour of Istanbul's lesser-known areas with Furkan, who was a terrific guide, full of knowledge and humour, and extremely flexible. Somehow, he found a zipper store when we wanted one, and he introduced us to one of the most...More

    Furkan is a great guide who is always flexible with the itinerary. We started off with telling him what we'd already eaten and tried in Istanbul so he took care of showing us the rest. We booked this tour because we wanted him to help...More
