The visit to the spice market could have been longer but the boat trip very good. The guide was very good. Overall a very enjoyable trip and worth the money.
The tour was organised as planned. Hotel pick up was punctual. The only comment that I have was that too short time given for shopping at the Spice Market. But overall, was fantastic and we had a great time. Especially the Bosphorus Cruise, you can have the view of Istanbul within short time.
Cruise is good. It alone is worth the price. For me, the Egyptian Bazaar was not particularly interesting and seemed mostly to provide an opportunity for the guide to eat breakfast.
Guide very nice and helpful. Would have liked more time in the Spice Bazaar and have opportunity to see more than just one store.
Excellent way for us to transfer from ship to Istanbul hotel.The cruise was very interesting although the ship should have better hand rails to top deck. Enjoyed the time in the Spice market especially being able to buy at reputable stall- one used by the guide's family for several generations. On returning home declared vacuum sealed spices at customs without any problems.

Good Tour operator and definitely worth taking the trip on Bosphorous cruise
Tour guide gave us ample time at the bazaar before the cruise. Cruise was very relaxing, and our tour guide was very knowledgeable.
Great trip....great introduction to Istanbul....great guide who pointed out all the important sites and more.
This was an excellent trip with an informative and friendly guide. The visit to the museum was nothing special and I would have preferred to set foot on the Asian side of Istanbul. But being on the Bosphorus was excellent!
The cruise was magnificent. Due to Eid Al Iftr, we were unable to see the Bazaar, but it was made up for by a tour of a private museum. Terrific guide!
The guided tour of Istanbul was excellent and the guide polite and knowledgeable. The second part of tour could be better. The meal was poor and a male singer at the show ,loud. The dancing however was a real treat.We wondered as we walked downstairs if the room had fire safety given some of the dancing included the use of flame. It did not !With about 180 people in this room this should be considered ?
