Nur nos preparó una ruta estupenda con varias paradas estratégicas durante el recorrido, un mercadillo, una cafeteria autóctona, rincones maravillosos para fotografiar y entrar en una mezquita. Recomiendo encarecidamente su compañia, es una persona muy agradable.

Very informative and thoroughly enjoyable tour. Nur has certainly done her homework. I felt safe and have learned a lot about Istanbul, especially its history, but also practical tips.

Teșekur ederim, Nur! Keep up the good work.
