Inspite of the duration was circa 3 hours, i thought i was just a few minutes. Really enjoyable. Especially Metal Church was so good. It was like a film set.

Our guide was so kind when they arrive to our hotel. Due our ages we could not move speed. Coach was so cold. Years years ago i was here. I have visited Spice Market. Changed so much. But the Bosphorus gave us a few years more to live.

If it is your first visit of Istambul you shoul make a Bosphorus Tour. To see closely the blueness. And you should smell Egyptian Bazaar.
