In May, we spent 2 half days and two full days before departing on a cruise touring Istanbul and the Bosphorus with Arif Yasa. He was a wonderful tour guide taking us to many key touring sites, but also exposing us to everyday life in the very metropolitan Istanbul. Arif is very knowledgeable and provided historical perspective as we visited a truly amazing city. We enjoyed crossing the Bosphorus over to the Asia side of Istanbul for the Sunset Tour, visiting several famous Mosques, the Cistern, the Topkapi Palace, the Bosphorus Cruise, and the Bazaars. Arif also introduced us to local food, drinks and transportation including the bus/tram and ferry system, and a wonderful Iznik pottery place at the Bazaar. He was always timely, polite, helpful, and our conversations were very interesting and informative. We only wish we could have spent more time in Istanbul and the rest of Turkey. I would highly recommend Arif and his company!
