What You Can Expect
Although it is expensive, it is excellent. I recommend this trip around the city. You can visit place as Galata Tower and Taksim Square.
Well worth a visit. Still mostly furnished so able to see how the last sultans actually lived [ Topkapi Palace older and also very interesting but more of a museum]. Also lovely setting on the Bosphorous. Very good guide and hotel transfers went smoothly. Not enough time to see much of the harem unfortunately but otherwise excellent tour.
More than excellent. Had a grt time!! Recommended!
The tourist guide is full of knowledge,he explain everything and we understand each of it.
This tour was perfect. We all enjoyed it very much.
Our guide, Osman, was full of energy and knowledge of the palace. Entertained us with stories of the past. A must visit place in Istanbul.
A very well organised afternoon with a Hotel pickup to join the tour a central location. Our guide was very informative and the tour of Palace well organised given the number of visitors. Our return to our Hotel was another tour of the city as there were many drop offs and ours was the last. A good afternoon.
Well organised, prompt pick-up and very informative guide, however, too much time spent at Camlica Hill - nobody interested in taking a coffee break and everyone just hung around the carpark waiting for their return trip.
Our hotel was about 1 mile or so from the palace, but we were picked up and driven clear across town to a meeting point and then back again to the palace. With traffic it took 2 hours. Then since we were late we were rushed through the tour. Skipped the ride over the bridge to Asia since we were so late and with traffic at a crawl we thought it would be several more hours before we would get back. Our tour guide was good and did his best in the bad situation.
