pick-up from the port was very smooth. the driver seemed to be a nice guy but we did not have much chance to know him, as we were stopped at the very biginning on the street due to random police check, since then we lost our private bus - later were told there was a mismatch of personal details given!
the guide decided to continue the tour by tram which turned out to be not a very bad idea as we beated the traffic. the tour covers what we wished to see especially the Cistern - main reason we booked a private tour. all points of interest were covered by foot. - can't really complain though as traffic in Istambul is chaos.
the 4th star was given to our guide Recep. he was very patient when waiting for a second mini bus to transfer us back to the port after the tour and even shouted us with an apple tea. well done.
overall it is a nice experience and i will still stay with viator next time visiting Turkey.
