This was probably the highlight of my trip! Some other tours are not really worth the money, to be honest, but this one certainly is.
Very interesting, the guide was excellent, real life experience, makes you appreciate what you live in america !!!
Loved this tour the guide was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The family was lovely and very welcoming. We had a wonderful evening.
Our trip to Istanbul in September was FANTASTIC. One of the most memorable moments of this week-long trip was the night of September 6th when we visited a Turkish family and had a GREAT meal with them. The food was simply delicious!!! There was enough food for you to have a second serving. I sure took advantage of that opportunity.
The family was lovely. We were allowed to asked any questions and they were answered honestly. The children were a pure delight.
Semih and his partner were wonderful tour guides. They helped to translate, but one of the little girls was able to practice her English on us. She was pretty good considering she is just learning how to speak it.
After dinner, Semih took us to a local cafe where we drank tea, used a shisha pipe and played backgammon. There is no need to worry if you don't know how to play backgammon, Semih is a wonderful teacher.
If you visit Instanbul, this is a MUST tour to take. It's inexpensive and trust me when I say that you will love it!!!
