What a fantastic tour. We covered so much (Blue Mosque, Suleymani Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar etc etc) though it never felt rushed and we even had time to stop for a Turkish coffee with an amazing view over the city. Burak, our guide, was fantastic. His English was excellent, and he really got the balance right with giving lots of interesting information about the city, but not overloading us with too much. He was also great at answering all my questions and taking us to places and imparting knowledge that I'd never otherwise have had on the city! A really brilliant tour and highly recommended. The other thing to add (as a major positive) is that there were only 2 of us (it was off-season in November) and yet the tour still went ahead - a real advantage with this tour given that is hardly a given with some other tour companies!

Great local knowledge and a fantastic insight into Islamic Cairo

Guide was enthusiastic and helpful. We enjoyed the tour...but the two fashion stops were odd. We enjoyed the discussion of different ways to bring native artisans into the process. But we also felt awkward not buying anything. I doubt UA or the NYT wants to resemble the classic guide who rounds up retail customers. So perhaps this is worth re-thinking.

This tour was amazing. I had a wonderful experience exploring Valparaíso with an amazing and knowledgeable guide. It was the Best Day Ever

Our guide was very enthusiastic and keen to tell us about the history (both ancient and modern) of the places we were visiting.
