Amazing!!! Went on this with the family last week and even though I’m not really into sightseeing my parents convinced me to join. Istanbul has so many things to see, time is never enough! A cool guide was with us, and we listed to the history of every site. Among the things that got my attention was, of course, Hagia Sophia. You cant even imagine how big it is!!! A must-see!!! Grand bazaar was a true experience. So much culture and history blended. We bought some nice stuff from there and we even tried some local specialties.
