Great day out on the water and Egyptian spice bazaar fabulous and although not as large as the Grand Bazaar was great for shopping and cheaper than the Grand Bazaar.
A friendly guide, entertaining talk kept us busy in describing places of historical importance and present day
attraction. The stop over at Egyptian Bazaar was too short to buy ....... Bosphorus Cruise was lovely.........
Great and relaxing and most informative. Bazaar ok but spice market cheaper and easier to find things as it's smaller especially shoes and headphones bought outside!
Good tour with lots of time on the water in a very nice boat. Tour guides were friendly and informative. i would have liked more detailed info about sights but i'm a geek! Would have liked more than 30 minutes in the spice bazaar but it took over 35 mins to collect everyone from their hotels.
Very good cruise with lots of sights to see. Spice bazaar good if you like to be in a place with lots of people and lots of noise. you must sample some of the turkish delights they have but really every store sells the same stuff you just have to find the one that takes your fancy.
The boat cruise was beautiful. You get to see both the European and Asian sides. You also get a different perspective on Istanbul by seeing it from the water. The Egyptian Bazaar was very fun and colorful. This is a good tour as a start to your visit to Istanbul.
We enjoy with this tour, the guid was very nice and cooperative, only the Egyptian bazaar tour was very short.
Beautiful weather on the stunning Bospherous. Great scenery. Commentary not that good as it is in a number of languages but who cares - the views are what this tour is all about and it was a pleasure.
I wish there was more time at the spice market. We only had 25 min.
This was great tour for only half a day. The Spice Bazaar was beautiful, people were friendly and we felt perfectly safe at all times. Our guide escorted us for taste tests of the magnificent Turkish delight in the Bazaar, and there was ample time to do your own wandering and shopping. The river cruise that followed was relaxing and informative. The driver also dropped us at a preferred location afterwards for our continued sightseeing. Highly recommended.
There was a lot of to-ing and fro-ing before this trip finally got underway. The commentary on the boat could not be heard, but the guide was aware of that and tried, not very successfully, to rectify the situation.
The cruise was a great way to see the highlights of Istanbul on the water. Saw places that I would never have seen.
It was great!! Just wish we had a little more time to shop. Omar was our tour guide and he was fantastic.
This was a great tour, excellent guide and good value for money
Guide was knowledgable and friendly. No stops during cruise, would have liked to have toured a few of the historic sites we passed.
Our tour guide, Omar was very knowledgeable. The boat ride was very nice and relaxing. I wish we had more time at the spice market.
Omar was our guide again and we had a great time.. Spice Market very different and more relaxed.. The boat tour fun and informative to see the Asia side!
Well organised and punctual, with knowledgeable guides. Enthusiasm was maintained in spite of poor weather conditions and few participants. This tour is certainly recommended.
The cruise was a nice relaxing way to spend an afternoon. It gives you a nice view into a different area of Istanbul with some interesting things along the way. Unfortunately the day we took this tour, the Spice Bazaar was closed.
As usual cruise is great...our guide was also very good.The cruise is one of the best outing in Istanbul.
we were picked up from our hotel and transported to another bus were we were taken to the spice market and the Bosphorus cruise, both was a very good experience.
The guide was kind of pushy but overall the cruise and bazaar was a good experience.
egyptian market great - bosphorous cruise...not really exciting - not that much of a historical focus on the boat ...nice way to spend an afternoon
