The tour was excellent, and we made it to the Wednesday market in Fatih, the Mosques, city walls and one if the cisterns I’d never seen before. Oguzhan was local, provided a huge amount of local social and historical information that assisted in appreciating the various locals we visited. The length of the tour was perfect. Not only my guide, but the transport and value for money were outstanding.
