Iskander is a great guy and will answer all of your questions. Super nice communication and was a tremendous help the night before the tour with me getting settled into the city and figuring out how to get to the meeting point via public transport. The tour was nice, did show several of the main points though we didn't actually visit the Hagia Sophia or Blue Mosque, rather saw them from a distance. But hopefully you will have time to visit these on your own elsewhere! Did visit two other more off-the-beaten path mosques, which is what I was looking for! Had some nice cheese pastry snacks and yummy tea. Went to a Turkish Delight shop at the Spice Bazaar and walked through the Grand Bazaar briefly. Hopped over to Fener and Balat. Got a good grasp of public transport. Note that this tour is not designed to spend much time in one place, so if you are interested in shopping or diving deeply into a place, make sure to schedule time for that later on! This will give you a good overview of some nice places in the city and will give you the means to get back on your own later. :) Thanks for a great day!

Very informative and well-organized. The guide also was helpful on personal level: when I forgot an umbrella with sentimental value in a cafe which I realized when our ferry already departed, the guide called his brother who lives in this hood. The umbrella was picked up and put in a cafe with longer business hours so that I would have an easier time retrieving it.

Iskender is a very friendly and well-educated guide. We learnt much about the history of Istanbul, its most significant buildings, got loads of Information about the Turkish culture and tried some traditional food. Despite of pandemic and some strict governmental regulations, he made the best of the tour. It was surprisingly pleasant to see Istanbul streets not overloaded with tourists. Teşekkürler, Iskender! We hope the situation with the pandemic will not last too long so you can have lots of interested travellers for your tour again!
