This tour gives a good overview of some of the highights of Istanbul but be prepared as it can be quite exhausting, especially if it is hot (as it was for us). Our guide was very knowledgeable but was at times hard to hear due to so many other people/groups at the sites. Those mobile receivers that I've used on other tours would be a good idea (if they're permitted). As Istanbul us such a busy city, it might have been better to either cut down the number of sites to visit or try to do everything in the morning when it's quieter and then end with lunch (which was very nice). For the price it was worth doing but just a bit too hectic.
Really interesting and informative. Small group, which was nice and the guide Maria Louisa knew the best ways to avoid the crowds. She also could point of things that perhaps other guides might not. The whole thing ran very smoothly. Guide was there to greet us when we arrived off the ship and we were taken back at the appointed time. If I had realised, I would have booked another 1/2 day (Sorrento) as Naples was 'under construction' so not so great for sightseeing. Well worth booking this tour!
Excellent tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to accommodate our requests. Transport was comfortable and spacious. Highly recommended.
