It's an excellent tour. Lots of walking involved, but all worth it. Churches visited were amazing. Tourist guide very professional. Churches expect a donation.

Among the old Greek wasted houses, near the Golden Horn, lies this important old church, full of the medieval orthodox atmosphere, a place with the great spiritual experience.
