Fantastic!! We got a private tour guide and chauffeur all to ourselves. Suleymaniye Mosque is greatly underrated by many tour companies but we thought it was grandiose in a humble sort of way difficult to explain, i guess you just have to go and see for yourself. Then Topkapi Palace. Although we have been there before, we saw places that we hadn't seen before which were really interesting and the guide was really good explaining everything and it was great because we could ask about things without having to shout from the back of a huge group. Skip the line entrance to the Basilica Cisterns - cool !! Lunch was great although my kids may not agree with me a good spread of Turkish food to feast on. Then off to the Grand Bazaar. An exotic experience bursting with colour and spice fragrances. I wouldn't buy too much there though, you can probably get better value in many of the shops outside the touristy areas. Overall - excellent, would go again tomorrow if I could and very highly recommended too !!!!!

Topkapi Palace was beautiful even though it was crowded. Did not see the Harem because the waiting line was very very long but the Palace is worth the visit regardless. We saw the Blue Mosque as the other one was further away according to our guide.
