Went on a tour to Balat and Fener with Hatice. She is a lovely lady and shares enough information during the tour. If you want to know more you can always ask. She is also very caring. Would definitely book another tour with Hatice if I had the time.

Hatice was personable and knowledgeable. We visited off-the-beaten-tracks and gained a deeper understanding of culture and religion from her. This is an excellent tour for photography enthusiasts. The ferry ride was fun, and we saw parts of Turkey we wouldn't have seen otherwise. We highly recommend this tour.
