We did the walking tour of Old Istanbul with Perri and it was an excellent way to get one's bearings. We got great recommendations on food to try (fish sandwich and kunefe), information on where to shop, what to look for when selecting a restaurant, which hamam to go to etc. We enjoyed it so much, we went on the Bosphorous boat trip that afternoon ....which was excellent value for money. At the end of the tour, we ended the tour on the Anatolian side and Perri made sure we knew where to go and how to make our way home. She was great. A big THANK YOU from Anne and Myles
