I had a wonderful tour with Özkan! He was so knowledgeable about the history of Istanbul. He showed me some hidden local gems that I would never have found myself, told great stories and showed me the best places to take photos. As a solo female traveller he made me feel at ease and I can 100% recommend him. You won’t regret it!
