City sightseeing tour was great, largely thanks to our guide Tibet. She is absolutely fantastic! Lunch at a restaurant next to the Basilica Cistern was very good. The night show including dinner and belly dancing was alright. As I was traveling alone, I booked the dinner part of this tour hoping to have a meal with small group of people. About 10 of us were picked up from our hotels and driven to Kervansaray restaurant. On arrival we were split up and seated only with people included in each of our individual Viator booking. So I was made to sit on my own. Luckily the night was jam packed with entertainment so I was not bored. There was plenty of food, but it was coming out way too fast and the quality was very average.
I was expecting a small group tour, but unfortunately it turned out to be 50-60 people on the bus (few people joined in for the afternoon part of the tour). Bosphorus cruise and Dolmabahce Palace were the highlights of the day. "Leather demonstration" was an absolute waste of time. The food at the restaurant next door to the leather shop was very ordinary. Although we were picked up from our hotels in Sultanahmet we were dropped off at a central location in Sultanahmet. Our tour guide was great, but he decided to speak German to four German tourists in our group. At every location we visited he gave information in both German and English, which was a bit of a time waster for most of us.
This is a worthwhile tour even if Salvador Dali is not your favourite artist. Anna from Explore Catalunya was a great tour guide and showed a great deal of passion about Dali. She provided lots details and an insight into Dali’s personal life. The museum was crowded and there was no audio guide available for purchase. It would have been great if we had a guide to take us through the museum. Visit to Dali’s home in Port Lligat was the highlight of the day.
