The experience was priceless and for a group of 12 Ali ensured we got to see everything we could. To top it off he educated us on Turkish rugs and helped us to catch our sunset cruise. This experience was worth every penny!

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to

Hello Ali We will be in Istanbul May 13 and 14 by ourselves, but will be starting a tour group on May 15, with 1 day seeing Hagia Sophia and the Hippodrome and Grand Bazaar with the large group. We want 1 or 2 days with a guide like you, but skipping the above sites. Maybe day 1 full day with you, while getting recommendations for sites on day 2 by ourselves? OR Book 2 full days with you seeing all the interesting sites as possible? Your recommendation? Bob and Pat Leitch
