Istanbul was more than what we anticipated. We could not have had a better guide than Unal Aydin, His historical knowledge of the city and historical locals visited was extraordinary and we learned so much from him. Visiting the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sofia, the Grand Bazaar Market, and Topkapi palace was a highlight for us. However, we also enjoyed the walk and the discussions regarding the Hypodrome. We visited a true Turkish rug maker and watched her weave. My daughter even got a taste of the difficulty of such artistry. Overall, we highly recommend this tour for all ages.
