Great tour
May 22, 2022
Emine met us at the ship. We were lucky in that we had her all to ourselves. She is knowledgeable and fun to be with. We toured the spice market where she picked up a selection of goodies for our picnic. We took the ferry to the Asian side, walked along the harbour and then took the new subway back. We boarded a couple of trams and got a taste of city life in Istanbul. It was a great experience.
