5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

The guide was on-time, the transportation was excellent, and his knowledge of the history, architecture, and culture was unparalleled. He adjusted the schedule based on the crowds, and as a result our wait times were minimal at all sites. Great experience for a group traveling to Istanbul for the first time!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Very accommodating! We left the ship one hour early then expected and had to wait only 10 minutes for transfer!

Even though we exited immigration/luggage formalities early, there was someone there to meet us and the taxi arrived exactly on time.

Waiting as we disembarked. Perfect timing.

We arrived on a cruise ship, which meant there were numerous customers using Viator, The Viator rep therefore, was holding a sign with Viator on it instead of our name, but that worked just fine. On time and had problem finding him. We're ushered on to a nice van and were the only riders on it to our hotel in old Istanbul. Very efficient. The driver must not have spoken English, as he never spoke a word, but we had no problem with that. Will definitely use Viator on future trips.

Again the driver was there to pick the six of us up right on time.The van was very roomy and clean. Picked us up right at the dock by the ship. We were all very impressed and pleased.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2013
