Diana Westall, Perth, Australia

I would like to take this opportunity to THANK YOU so much for the wonderful time we spent together last week.  As we explained to you, my partner and I tend to shy away from large tours whilst travelling and to find you and the fact that you could fit us in at such short notice was such a blessing. Your passion and knowledge of the Zeyrek district was inspiring and we were so lucky to be able to learn, and see so much of it with you.  The time we spent in the Mosque together was very special and we felt we didn’t need to actually see inside the Blue Mosque as we had seen the true thing with you.
Your family stories and our little stop at the place you used to visit with your Grandma when you were small was also special.  To be able to taste the special drink, Boza, with a local and the know the history of its contents was wonderful. Also the lunch we shared with you is a highlight of eating we have experienced whilst in Turkey.  Very local, very delicious and very cheap. Once again, thank you so much for your time and professionalism.  We will contact you whenever our Australian friends are coming to Istanbul.  I do not think they could get a better guide anywhere.
