Warning-Hiking Istanbul hiking group

Hi guys,

I just went hiking with Hiking Istanbul- a Facebook group. and thought I;d warn you about the following:

- they customarily trespass on government property- which got us in trouble with security forces today, and could potentially get you arrested;

- they hike off trail and on wasteland;

- you're on your own when hiking, with little help from group leaders;

- they may make you do things like cross highways.

Very little concern for safety overall. I have been hiking for a long time, and have never had such an unpleasant experience. In my humble opinion, they are complete amateurs, I would avoid at all costs.

Cheers,
Carmen
