My Review

The experience in crossing the Bosphorous bridge was surreal. In one minute I was in Europe, but in another I was in Asia. Nowhere else but only in Istanbul! And yes, the view from atop Camlica Hill was fantastic.

My Review

We had an excellent tour guide. His name is Omar. He is fluent in English and very knowledgeable. He explained to us Istanbul’s long history-- dating back to the Roman, Byzantine and the Ottoman Empire. Istanbul is the only metropolis in the world that is situated on two continents. Omar is very patient individual and very accommodating. He represents Istanbul well-- a true ambassador of goodwill. Overall, our trip to Istanbul was well-spent. My wife and I are thinking of coming back to Istanbul and its neighboring cities. Thanks, Omar!
