We had a medical emergeny our last night in Istanbul and were extremely impressed how the employees of Trafalgar took care of everyone. Particularly our guide and another guide, who I'm sorry to say that I did not get her name. She had another group and they were at the same restaurant for our farewell dinners. The two of them worked seamlessly. We will take another trip based on that experience alone.
