I’ve been in Istanbul in August, booked this tour and the guide cancelled. Now, I’m in Istanbul again, booked the tour and she cancelled AGAIN! I know she have a minimum atendees number, but we don’t stay in Istanbul for a long time to wait for the next tour…

It has been a great trip around Balant, she is a really funny and passionate Tourguide, which gives so much Energy to the Group, that the hills of the Tour are much easier to take.

Hatice is a great guide! She is kind and funny, she speaks english really clearly! We learned a lot about the area we visited and the culture of Istanbul. She even gave us some tips and recommendations for the rest of our trip. Really recommended!
