Very nice experience ! Erol speaks really well english and has a lot of anecdots and stories to tell about the monuments we have visited. It was a private visit for my boyfriend and I so we were able to ask all the question whe had, it's very precious when you compare it to the other guided visites where there is 30 persons for one guide.. Just a little point : it goes a bit fast if you want to take pictures and appreciate the moment but it's because Erol has a lot of things to share with you !

Super visite de la ville d'Istanbul. Le guide connaissait bien l'histoire de la ville, des différents monuments et édifices visité, c'est très complet. On a même la chance de s'arrêter quelques instants au bazaar égyptien pour savourer quelques pâtisseries locales. Je recommande :) !
