It's amazing and Barack our tour guide was good and patient with us.
Absolutely brilliant tour, got to see the main attractions in Istanbul. Recommend to anyone!
Tour was fantastic. Very nice and relaxing and well organized.
Only thing we did not enjoy was the hard sale at the carpet shop.
Our tour guide was well informed and a genuine nice guy.
Our guide Unni/Jimmy was great. Very organized and the earphones definitely helped especially in the markets. Definitely recommend this tour
excellent choice of sites to visit. Knowledgeable and polite tour guides. Tour was too hurried

The guide was ok. The day tour started well and guide seems to be very knowledgeable. But at none of the places, guide accompanied the group inside the monument. And therefore we could not know more details. Also guides of other tourist agencies were accompanying their patrons / visitors insdie the monuments. It was hot in the afternoon and no water was offered inside the bus. I had a very average experience with Viator for this tour. Last year I had a Cappadocia tour with a local operator in Istanbul named Turista and the experience with them was awesome.
This tour was truly outstanding. Derya was our guide, and she was amazing in all aspects: very knowledgeable, as you would expect, but she also clearly tailored the day to our interests and likes. She seemed to know when to stay with us and talk about the history and architecture and surroundings and when to give us some family time alone and meet back up a few minutes later. The itinerary is an awesome introduction to Istanbul, a city where a week is not enough. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously and will certainly do more Viator personal tours during future trips.
we Had a great day in Istanbul with a small group of poeple ,10 in all from all over the world. And we got on so well. The turkish Guide was very good as well ,but I cant remember his name. But he really gave us a great day with all the seights.
It was very good the tour guide was knowledgeable and well organised. Even managed to sort out a few people that were delaying us.

Absolutely worth it! Great guide, get to see all sites in one day and most of all you don't waste time waiting in lines to buy tickets. Had I done this on my own, I would have at least spent 3 days. Overall, a great experience! Would definitely recommend.
Amazing and very informative. Touch all of the top sites with enough time and the walk isn't bad at all. Enjoy this great city.
I loved how knowledgeable my guide was. She asked me questions in the beginning to tailor the tour around what information I wanted out of the tour. She did not rush through any of the buildings. Lunch was authentic Ottoman cuisine great food. I was impressed with the whole tour. I plan on returning to Turkey to spend more time exploring more of this wonderful city.
It was all we hoped for.
Magnificent!! Our tour guide - Borat - was very knowledgeable and totally fun!!! Had a BLAST!!!
This tour was amazing!
The tour guide was phenomenal! Very knowledgeable of the area and the sights!
We had a wonderful sightseeing day! Omar was GREAT! He was knowledgeable and very professional. The lunch was wonderful too. We really enjoyed seeing all the places on the itinerary. We plan to use you again.
Ask for Umer Omar! Very knowledgeable and patient. He comfirms eveything for the next stop while you are ar the current one so there isnt a lot wasted time.
Great value for money. Knowledgeable and courteous guide (Ms. Gulai). I would highly recommend this tour operator and use it again.
Hakan, our guide was very personable and informative and very patient with the group.
Good English language skills and fun to be with.
Excellent tour. Well organised. And the best part was the very knowledgeable Guide we had for the Tour, with a lot of desire to share her knowledge. Do not remember the name of the lady but a BIG THANK YOU to her from us.
This was an amazing experience! The monuments, especially the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque, are among the most beautiful works of architecture in the world that we've seen so far. And the tour guide was extremely informative and kept us as engaged as he could. The tour was longer than advertised we were dropped off around 6 pm. But it was worth it. There was even a surprise stop at a carpet dealer's showroom, and we were given a fascinating introduction to the tradition and evolution of carpet-making in Turkey. We got 1 hour at the Grand Bazaar, and bought some beautiful handicrafts there. It is a huge place, and full of local fashion and handicraft shops.
One thing I should mention is that we tried to bargain everywhere we went, and managed to bring the price down over 50 percent in some shops. I bought a camera in the city, and even some of those shops lowered the price when I asked if there are any discounts.
