  1. Linda A

    This is a very well done tour with a knowledgeable guide. The Hagia Sophia museum was, especially, not to be missed. We also stopped for an authentic, inexpensive Turkish lunch in a place the locals like and use unlike other tours which have been factory stops for tour busses. I would highly recommend this tour.
