Better than anything I could buy from RCL. Our guide was excellant, and because our group was so much smaller than any cruise excursion, we were able to get more information, insight and a more customized tour than we would have had. Example....he took us down to a section of the cisterns, and cut down on the time in the bazaar (which our group was not too interested in spending much time in). I highly recommend this tour when docked in Istanbul. P.S. The tour bus, which seated approximately 15, was first class!

The weather was wet but the tour was fantastic. Our guide spoke perfect English and he was very knowledgeable. We visited all the places listed and were able to take time to appreciate each location. As there were only 6 people in our party we were all able to ask individual questions and receive individual replies. This tour was great value for money and we would highly recommend it!

Almost half the cost of a ship organized tour and equal to or better than in value. Guide was one of the best and experienced. Bus and driver superb. Trip started on time and ended on time. Will try to do our next day tour through viator.

Tour provided excellent value for money and because the bazaar was closed on Sunday we were able to go to the Cisterns. I suggest that this is included on every tour. Only six on the tour made it easy to listen to our guide who looked after us well despite the power walking through the crowds..

The tour was very good, the guide spoke very clear English. The minor negative was he walked very fast and he spoke a little fast.

Great tour! So nice to walk off the ship and have a private guide / van waiting for you. Istanbul is a great city and we were able to see all of the highlights. Our guide was fantastic and the lunch was excellent. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone!

Excellent Tour and very good value. My only complaint was that we were advised on our voucher that our guide would be at the Port with a placard with our name on it. As it transpired he was outside the Port with a very small placard with Neon Tours on it. This applied equally to the other groups on the Tour.

Our tour was excellent and the tour guide was a delight. She was a well of information, spoke very good English and to top it all was gorgeous!
Lunch was very good and in a lovely bright dining room in a very nice little hotel. We were very surprised, had expected a little dingy restaurant some place.
With only 10 people in the mini bus, we got lots of attention from the tour guide and it was easy to keep together. The tour guide made our day!
