I am so very sorry that I don't remember the name of our guide but we did the tour on the 7th of April in the afternoon and this man was incredible: charming, witty, funny and very clear in his explanations! 20 years of experience as a guide and it shows! We finally understood in details the wonders of Istanbul. Thanks again! I totally recommend it, it was possibly the best tour I ever did (and I myself am a tour guide in Italy😅)
