I had a 15 hour layover with Turkish Airlines (Free Hotel stay if your layover meets certain requirements!!)
I contacted Istanbul Layover Tours to see if a night tour was something that can be done since I arrived at 6:00PM and Latif was very helpful and informative right from the start. 5-6 hour tour was perfect.
I told him places I'd like to see and visit and he added suggestions of his own and was able to create an awesome customized private night tour for me! It was like hanging out with a local friend! Ate some ridiculously good food.. saw a good amount of the major beautiful sites (from the outside since they are closed by then) and I had an all around great time exploring Istanbul! Very much enjoyed taking the ferry to see the Karakoy district and seeing the Bosphorus Bridge. Hung out in the Sultanahmet/Taksim/Istiklal area. Had some Turkish Tea! Ate some delicious Kokorec (lamb intestines)!
So sad I only had a short time in Istanbul, but I cannot wait to plan my next visit!
I would for sure highly recommend Latif - Very professional! Very engaging! Extremely informative!
Thanks again Latif!
