Waited for more than 1 hour for hotel pick up. No email received for the time pick up, I need to ring them for it. The view is amazing.

overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
