Cirgan met us at our hotel and we traveled by taxi to the Grand Bazaar. He was very friendly with many of the shop keepers, and was able to find shops that had everything we had been looking for, and lots more besides.

I really enjoyed the shopping spree in the grand bazaar. It was nice to be so close to the Turkish locals and to do some shopping.
