A city can be known best by walking and catching every detail around. And its even better when youre with a local person who born there and lived for whole her life. You will not be able to taste the spirit of Istanbul inside car or sightseeing tour buses. I will tell you all the historical informations and traditional characterictics of the locations we have been one by one. I read lots of books about the places I take you and before the day we meet, I read my notes about history and importance of places again. So don't worry. After this tour you'll learn all.
