ABSOLUTELY TOP NOTCH AND MUST DO, WORTH EVERY PENNY! I cannot say enough about what a completely mind-blowing experience I had on this excursion. Peri is an absolute professional who really knows her stuff. She is very flexible and willing to do whatever suits your fancy. We started with touring Old Istanbul and seeing the mosques (the Blue mosque was closed due to Friday morning prayer, but she encouraged me to spring for the 25 Euro to see the Hagia Sofia - no regrets at all, absolutely breathtaking, and the stories she is able to tell as she takes you around are so educational and intriguing). But got wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better. Not realizing that Istanbul is a go-to place for finding fine leather goods, Peri determined that we should save time for the Grand Bazaar and lunch before sending me off to the airport. This woman is so well connected. Having her lead you into trusted shops with designer bags (the really good ones), leather goods, jewelry, and Turkish Delight purveyors takes all the stress out of wondering if you're being ripped off or are buying the "cheap stuff." For those that are willing to spend a bit more on good quality fashion and handbags, you MUST ask for Peri to escort you around. And then, there was the lunch. OMG, the lunch. I can't remember what restaurant it was, but I had the best hummus, "balloon bread," lamb kabob, and a few other dishes the owner threw in because he knows Peri. She even arranged for me to leave my growingly heavy bags at the jeweler who needed a 1/2 hour to re-size a ring I purchased. Her business partner promptly showed up at the restaurant with the goods while we enjoyed the most amazing food and wine in a beautiful atmosphere and section of the neighborhood. Peri was constantly working things out so as to make the entire experience seamless and enjoyable for me. She was calling owners of the stores to make sure they were ready for us, the driver to make sure he was on time to take me to the airport (btw, the car they send is a well-decked out limo bus). The icing on the cake was her taking me to the rug store where my bags were safely stowed, and then making magic happenby packing my goods into my two carry-ons so I didn't have to check my bag to my next destination. I cannot say enough (clearly) must do this, and you must ask for Peri if you're lucky enough to get her. She is truly one of the best tour guides I have ever had...and now a new international bestie! Love you, Peri!!

The tour left no stone unturned. I feel like an expert on the history and sites in Turkey. My guide was a history buff and a local.
