We were in Istanbul for a week in early Sptember. We took this tour on our last day in Istanbul because we wanted something relaxing(the cruise portion) after a week of visiting sites on our own. The Spice Market is not as big as the Grand Bazaar, but it's still a must see and shop thing to do. The tour was FANTASTIC as well as the tour guide!!!
Great tour with bags of information about Florence Nightingale, giftts from Queen Victoria and an informative Bosphorous tour. Value for money, a small group, and a great guide. TDJ Cardiff
Thus tour was an inexpensive way to see two major sights in Istanbul, in a short period if time. The tour was very professional, and as I am a travel agent for the last 30 years, I can judge fairly accurately. My clients loved the experience as did I.
Great half day tour- plenty of time to shop in the bazaar and the boat trip was very relaxing with good commentary. Hotel transfers were very easy...and the rest of the day is then yours free!
Some people I met did the full day tour (lunch and palace) but wished they hadn't bothered?...
Bosphorous cruise was very enjoyable and beautiful! We enjoyed the Bazaar very much. A lot easier to shop with prizes on everything!
This tour was awesome, despite the weather being slightly cold and cloudy, the trip to the cruise ship and the guided tour down and back on the Bosphorus was very enlightening and informative. The tour guide was great, explaining things to us when we asked and making the entire experience quite enjoyable, this is a DEFINITE must if you go to Istanbul.
A very nice day out with Omar as our guide, very enjoyable cruise, and time to shop in the spice market! Thanks again, Omar!
Again the pick up was on time. The trip to the bazar should be dropped as there was nothing for the tourist to do over there. The toilets in the cruise ship were horrible but otherwise bosphorus cruise was nice.
Excellent guide and really interesting trip, learned a lot about beautiful Istanbul!
This was a great tour with wonderful photo opps. Views and history along the Bosphorus are incredible and I think it's definitely a must see tour. Spice Bazaar is awesome, not as daunting as the Grand Bazaar. Shopping there is worth spending a full day. Our guide Serhat was very friendly and ccourteous and after the tour ended, he helped us with directions and recommendations for other things to do around Istanbul. Highly recommended~!
