Incredibly knowledgeable and passionate tour guide

We couldn’t have asked for a better tour-guide. Errol was extremely well informed, professional and considerate in his approach to guiding. His knowledge of the history of Istanbul and his descriptions of the different buildings we saw was excellent. All our various questions (on a number of different related issues) were answered thoroughly. Our understanding of the many cultures and of the fascinating political background of Istanbul and also of Turkey as a whole, has most definitely deepened. We would highly recommend Errol as a tour guide and feel lucky to have been given him for our tour.
