This tour was a great introduction to Istanbul’s sights, history and culture. Pinar was a fun, energetic and informative guide who ensured we all had an enjoyable time. She also gave us tips on where to eat, experience a hamam - and how to avoid tourist traps and scams. I recommend this tour for your first morning in this city.
