Ömer was super kind and very helpful. Because I was using crutches and although he had arranged everything for me to start with the tour some hours before the new lockdown began, he gave some tips of what to do and he have some good indications. I would definitely like to book a tour with him again the next time I'd be visiting Istanbul!
