In this tour, Salih will take you out of the main touristy part of Istanbul and show you less know but the most beautiful mosques in Istanbul. Blue mosque? No! Blue mosque is for tourists and you are not. As Salih's guests, you'll get to see nicer one.

And you will enjoy the breath taking view of Istanbul from the courtyard of the mosque. We will also walk through the back streets if Istanbul and you will hear lots of stories about this magic city.

Salih, You deserve a 10. Magnificent tour. I want to go on all of your tours. You could use your name instead of “My Local Guide.” You added much more to my knowledge of the Suleymaniye Mosque. I have been there two times. I have a few books on Sinan. Bravo!
