After reading many reviews, I contacted Tolga to arrange a tour for our family in late May. We had a short stop in Istanbul on our way to Italy. Tolga asked me a few questions and I let him know that my girls were college age. He sent a driver for us at the airport and Cumali Okay the next morning. Cumali is a recent college graduate that knows so much about the history, art, religion and people of the city and Turkey. We had great conversations with him as we visited the important mosques and palaces and discussed ancient art and history. Cumali took us to a friend's restaurant and we had delicious lunch. He knew the good shops in the Spice Market and shared his favorite place for baklava. We wound up at Taksim Square, just a few days before the riots, and parted ways. Cumali spent 12 hours with us and made our trip so memorable.
