Our guide was extremely informative. He opened our eyes to the history of Istanbul and answered all questions that were asked by the group. Over lunch, the other passengers on the tour also commented how well spoken and informative our guide was. The order of the tours was also great and the lunch was very well balanced with good flavours.
