The Private Departure was actually by cab. Doing it by cab from the hotel may have been cheaper, but it was nice to know that Viator subcontractor would make sure the car arrived on time. Subcontractor arranged the pickup time to ensure we arrived at the airport in sufficient time. Taxi arrived on time and was efficient in getting us to the airport.
Our tour guide was Tibet. We would rate her as SUPERIOR. Her English skills were perfect. She answered every question we had. She guided us through the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and Grand Bazaar. The Tour requires a lot of walking. The Tour includes entrance fees for the places requiring them; this allows you to avoid some of the lines. Tibet avoiding the crowds as much as possible by arranging the order we went to places based on when she expected the crowds to be the smallest. We had a wonderful, relaxing lunch which is also included in the tour. We enjoyed the personalized nature of the tour – four of us and Tibet. This is a MUST tour for a one-day stay in Istanbul!
