We had a fantastic time on this tour! Tibet, our guide was brilliant and full of character one of the most funny, witty people I've met. She knew the history behind the amazing, gorgeous places we visited on this tour. The tour was executed pace fully and enough free time to relax and absorb the culture and atmosphere. Must see places in Istanbul! Thanks Tibet! Thanks Viator!!

The tour guide was friendly and knowledgable. She took us to see the historical sites and described the history behind each site. In the Grand Bazaar, she helped us to good shops for our souvenirs.

Awsome! we got more for or money. The tour guide was on time, she was very nice, she knows a lot about the history, and she was very professional. We learned a lot from her. I believe her name was Sybilla. I will recommand this tour.

Private guide picked us up on time, took us to the Hagia Sophia, Cistern, and Bazaar, gave us private time, and transferred us back to the hotel. Could not have been better.

I would recommend the full day tour, but we only had a half day available. Good tour guide and interesting tour. Suggest you copy what is on tour (its not on the voucher), as our tour guide would have left out the Roman Cisterns (which was a highlight), if I had not reminded her.
