Great tour in an interesting district! Great guide!

Meeting point is incorrectly indicated on the map! The meeting point was confirmed via WhatsApp against request (again the wrong one) ... so we were at the wrong meeting point. Thanks to the guide (call) we found each other. Please change the entry!

A very unique personal experience.

As regular travellers to Turkey we really enjoyed this opportunity to see and taste different culinary offerings with a local flavour.
