It's the best tour I booked with just five participants and a nice and knowledgeable local guide. Oz, our guide brought us to places where most of the tourists are not going to visit or eat. A great storyteller who loves to share those historical facts/intrigues in every places we visited. If you love to walk and explore hidden spots, you must book this tour.

I can only recommend you this tour, your guide is very nice and he knows the stuff he's talking about, he'll lead you around some famous sites but also covering secret sites invisible to the tourist eye. This tour is very long (compared to most others), it is very cheap for the amount that you see and you get a locally very experienced guide that gives you all kinds of advises for your istanbul experience (from food to sites). This guide has been the best tour that i have ever booked (thank you oz) and i can only highly (!!!) recommend you, reading this comment, to go check it out :) with my regards
