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
Our guide was good, although a little repetitive. He gave us great tips on shopping at the Bazaar. The boat cruise was just the right length and very informative.
The cruise was great. I wish I had more time to walk around at the spice bazaar but it was a good experience.
Great way to see the coastline and Asia side of Istanbul.The Egyptian Bazar is much more manageable than the Grand Bazar.Nice ship.
Provides the best views of Istanbul - the bazaar is a collage of colours.

The spice bazar, on your own for an hour, basically for shopping momentos and gifts back home, should bargain well. nice to see the bosphorus coastline, little more of history telling would have been great but good experince in all.
Worth doing. Not a lot of time was spent in the spice bazaar, but enough to get an idea of what to do on a return trip. Note that the guide will try to steer you to a store just inside the bazaar. If that bothers you just keep walking. The cruise was fun. The narration in english was spotty so i just went out on the bow of the boat to enjoy the view. Also note that they will offer you food and drink on the boat but they do cost extra. overall worth doing.
Trip was interesting. The trip to the spice market was educational and well worth it. The cruise up and down the Bosphorus had entertaining commentary and there were plent of excellent photo opportunities. Well worth the money.
4 stars good We needed a bit longer time to visit and buy something from the Egyptian Bazaar, unfortunate they allow us only 30 minutes ( not too much)
Good tour and the guide on the bus section was excellent. Spice Bazaar definitely worth a look. Only negative there is not enough time devoted to being able to browse. Cruise good-similar to others.
Convenient and reliable pick-up from hotel. Spice market is a must see, wish we had more time. Bosphorus cruise was good in that it gave a more overall perspective of Istanbul as a city. Large boat with lots of people, not an intimate experience if that's what you're looking for.
Lovely views from the river. The spice market was a great experience- no hassle from the shop keepers and small and compact shoppimg.
A good introduction to Istanbul. The Egyptian Market was fascinating with spices and wonderful exotic aromas and goods. The cruise showed us a variety of architecture and attractions - great opportunities for the photographer.
