It was a pleasure exploring Istanbul with Nihan, it was like being with a friend instead of a tour guide. She has a warm, inviting personality and likes to show her clients local neighborhoods of the city that they might not see on their own.
We spent a few days together walking around and photographing areas of the city that would have been difficult for me to find and feel comfortable in by myself. I love flea markets. Nihan took me to a very interesting market with antiques and unusual items. It was invaluable to have her with me to translate from Turkish to English, I was able to know about the piece I was buying and offer the right price for it. I have traveled to 7 continents and 75 countries and can completely recommend Nihan and her services. Thank you Nihan for sharing your city with me!
