The Other Tour ***IS*** the “real tour.” You still will need perhaps 2 days to see Topkapi Palace, the New Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Chora Church. They’re more interesting to Western tourists than Fethi may acknowledge – but to see the “real Istanbul” – to understand this unique melting pot of cultures from the region and history. No one can show this better than Fethi.

    Thank you very much Mel. It’s nice to know that you are still there! 🙂

      You’re stuck with Sandy and me. Don’t know if our paths will cross in 2013 – tentatively planning Switzerland, Prague, Budapest and Croatia this year. But Istanbul, Israel and Rome (all second/third visits) are likely for 2014 – so I hope you have something new for us then! All the best for a happy, healthy, prosperous and peaceful 2013!
