Just did this last week and it was a very funevening! I was the only one with tolga (the guide), most likely because it was off season. Really enjoyed my meal with the family. The mom was so sweet and the lil kids entertaining. They didnt speak eng as it was forewarned but the guide did a good job of mediating conversation. One neice was there, spoke eng, and I ended up getting along really well with her and even hung out with her the following days. It was a perfect start to my weeklong trip. Would recommend this to everyone!
I truly enjoyed this tour and I would recommend anyone to go for this.
Guide's English was not great, however her english was good enough to talk us into a rug shop which was not on the itinerary. I have no interest in buying a rug, and would have joined up to the "Rug buying tour" if I did have an interest. Shame a good tour was spoilt by the guide's wish to get commission from this diversion.
Great pace. a lot of walking, but there's no other way to do it well. The guide was helpful and flexible with what the group wanted.
Excellent tour. Very personable
It was a great experience to join this tour. The tour guide explained the history of Istanbul well who enabled me to travel thru time and imagined myself as part of the history. Thank you for such great tour.
We signed up for this tour for our first day in Instanbul and it was well worth it. We were picked up on time and visited the major sites in the Old City and ended at the Grand Bazaar. Tour guide was informed and interesting. Included a lunch which was ok and not great, but certainly acceptable. I recommend this tour.
Comprehensive, detailed, excellent service. Recommend it!
It was a great experience to join this tour, a great value, and was everything as described. It was also a small group which made it almost like a private tour. Very good lunch.The tour guide Gulay was excellent and very knowledgeable. She kept us entertained during the ride to the sites and provided valuable information of what we were about to see and during the site seeing as well. I would highly recommend this tour.
Stunning places on this trip. We enjoyed it immensely. Highlight for us was the visit to the Cistern - which is curious as we didn't even realise we were going there!
Amazing night...great food, company and the local family/kids wanted to know as much about us as we did about them!
the tour was excellent, our tour guide was great.
Tour was great. Our guide seemed like she was our friend walking us through her city and answered any questions we had. We enjoyed the sights, relaxing lunch, and even took her to hookah in the Grand Bazaar after.
This your is great value for money. We only had 2 full days is Istanbul, therefore, this trip allowed us to see all the main sights in one day, we didn't waste time queing or buying tickets. Negative: tour doesn't run on time pick up was 7.50am and we were dropped off at 7pm. Massively overran!
