Mr. Izzet provided us with a very informative tour of the important sites to visit in Sultanahmet. His knowledge of the history and culture of the area is vast. We especially appreciated his sharing of information about Islamic practices and beliefs. He also provided fantastic restaurant recommendations. I would recommend this tour as a great introduction to Istanbul.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening with Bilal. The food and drink were plentiful and delicious, the music was great, and we learned so much from Bilal about Turkish culture, politics, religion, food, dancing, and more. After dinner and traditional music, Bilal took the younger (20-something) members of our group out to the local clubs where they had a great time dancing into the wee hours. I highly recommend this Vayable adventure!
