Serkan was an awesome tour guide! Always ready to help, knowledgeable about the places we went to, eg. Aya Sophia, Blue Mosque, etc. I was a part of an Umrah (small Islamic pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia) with a transit in Istanbul. Serkan was helpful and understanding that I didn't want to overtire myself. He accompanied me shopping for Turkish delights/sweets and chatting about his experiences (also in Indonesia!). Would love to be in Serkan's company if I ever travel to Istanbul again.
