Amazing trip although rain tried to play spoil sport but couldn't deter us. Bus tour was a smart ploy and helped us see most of Istanbul in short period
A safe, easy, effective and informative way to see the sights of the city.
A very good experience. Prompt, good recorded tour tape. Driver was courteous and well informed.
An Excellent way to see all the amazing sites and learn all the routes in one day.
We enjoyed our tour and was able to see a lot of Istanbul in 1 day. The Tour itself was very systematic and the people involved with the tour were very helpful.We highly recommend this tour.
Loved the tour of Istanbul once we found the stop. Was not that convenient to port and had a hard time finding.
The red tour gave a good overview of the city. It stopped at all important places. Unfortunately the sound system did not work that well and sometimes the explanations faded out and could not be heard. So I missed some of the information.
Overall was a good experience but they had no headsets so it was frustrating not being able to hear the explanation of all the points of interest, they gave me a 48 hr window to use the bus instead of 24 however the trip was planned to the minute so I am not sure if I'll have time for another two hours on the bus.
This is a very good way to find your way around and get your bearings. The commentary was excellent. You need to be aware of the time as traffic is a big factor in the late afternoon. Well worth doing.
A very comprehensive tour with well explained highlights. More specific descriptions of pick-up points would be better. Example: state the pickup point at the Spice Bazaar is at the bus stop rather than saying "outside the Spice Bazaar" .
A good way to get a feeling for this exciting city and to then be able to travel between the sites .
Good overview of the city - but it was spoiled by a morning of rain.
Overall I had a great experience. It didn't start off so well, but in the end was a wonderful choice. This purchase was for Istanbul Hop-on Hop-off bus tours, which was bought out 3 months prior by Big Bus Hop-on Hop-off. When I tried to find the bus stop I was told that my ticket was no good. I took a taxi to the main bus stop near the Blue Mosque and my ticket was redeemed.
