My son and I had a one day stopover in Istanbul on our way back to the States from Africa. I planned out with Aydin what we wanted to do and see and he coordinated everything. He was flexible, too, when our flight came in a little later than expected and still managed to get us everywhere we needed to go, even with bad traffic caused by some demonstrations going on at Taksim Square.
Really enjoyed the Spice Bazaar more than the Grand Bazaar. Also enjoyed walking along the Bosporus and watching the fishing boats and seeing the locals going about their daily lives. Aydin made it so enjoyable, pleasant and unrushed that I hope to get back to Turkey one day to have him show me Ephesus and Cappadocia.
