Alternative Istanbul: Yeldeğirmeni & Street Art

I booked a second trip with Alper since Yeldegirmen was one of the few sites in Istanbul I hadn't visited yet. Also, he knows quite a great deal about art. And I was quite right! He made me sample the best coffee in Kadikoy before taking me to see these wonderful murals. Again, sharing this experience with someone who's knowledgeable adds up.

The Non-Touristy Mekong Delta Private Day Trip

Wow, what can I say. Thien was just fabulous and great fun - we can’t recommend her highly enough! The tour with her to the Mekong Delta was the highlight of our stay in Vietnam. Thien was very organized, knowledgeable and shared her own personal experiences of the region. Thien clearly had a great relationship with locals and the lunch stop was probably the best local food we had experienced served by a lovely lady in a beautiful location.
