Istanbul is Amazing& Sevilay Was a Fantastic Guide

Even while a majority of them were under major renovation, the Hippodrome, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Cistern, Hagia Sophia, and Grand Bazaar practically show themselves. They are amazing destinations, and I could spend days exploring them. But I had one day, and Sevilay did a great job showing them all to me in just a few hours. I was collected from my hotel, joining one other individual on my tour. We had another person jump in on the tour at lunchtime. The small group allowed us to do and see pretty much whatever we wanted along the way. Sevilay was friendly and informative, and she was eager to share the city with us. She did a great job of accommodating our requests, and she handled my fellow traveler being severely jet-lagged quite well. She may even have a future as a photographer--if you want a photo shoot, she seemed more than happy to provide one. We spent more time shopping in one particular place than I would have liked, but that was more at the request of my fellow traveler than at Sevilay's direction. If Neon Tours' other guides are of the caliber of Sevilay, I would use them for other tours in the future. Thanks for a great day!
