Haftan was extremely knowledgeable and even though it was a private tour (no one else signed up), he gave me a thorough tour, full of great historic information using stories to ensure interest. I would highly recommend Haftan to anyone interested in the history of Istanbul and Turkey. We saw many interesting buildings and learned of their significance and many details of each building.

Response from Haktan
Thanks a lot Dawana :)
