Highly recommended! Yldray was awesome. Showed us where the best baklava is, Turkish delights and more. Prepare to woo your senses. Come with an appetite. I didn't know we were starting with the baklava so I ate breakfast. I could have tried more sweets. This is the only way to navigate both bazaars
