Enjoyed this tour the most of the tours we did in Istanbul. The Spice Markets are incredible, smell, noise, soak it up whatever you do. The palace you have enough time to see the must see and you have the option of staying if you want to see more. Probably could have left the tour there, but if you want to see the Asian side definitely go.

This was a good tour, and our guide was very knowledgeable and made it very entertaining. We enjoyed the tour to the palace most of all. Will recommend. The only minor reservation was that we were joined by German speaking tourists, so the guide kept switching from English to German constantly.

Istanbul is a beautiful city and the cruise was incredible because of the beautiful sightseeing. The Dolmabahce Palace was something unexpected, very well preserved, magnificent palace that worth a visit.

This tour was excellent, we enjoyed every minute of it. We were picked up right on time at the Hilton Hotel and we loved seeing all the sights. We will choose Viator every time we travel. Thank you for making our travel experience in Istanbul so easy and wonderful.

This tour was amazing! We had a wonderful day with an extremely helpful tour guide who waited for us when we were late for the bus, helped us with small issues, and showed care and concern for all the fellow tourists. Moreover, the cruise was the highlight of the day, followed by the magnificent Dolmabahce Palace. Excellent work Plan Tours!

I love the tour, it was very informative. We had a very good guide and I forgot this name now, but he knew his stuff. The only part of the tour I would substitute is the Leather Factory Tour. I believe we could have visited another area in place of that, then after lunch if we choose to get something there, we can. Overall I loved it, I am planning to return and this time take a tour of the mosques, Vasilica Cistern, and might do some balloon rides.

Good guide but a bit pointless going inside the palace if you cannot take photographs

It was great. (I was a little challenged because I sprained my ankle prior to this part of the tour)

I found the guide very accommodating of my situation.

Amazing view, well organized, in my opinión, the tour was too long, it took the whole day and was not specified.

Enjoyed going to the Spice Bazaar and sightseeing in the Bosphorus Cruise. AM group was dropped off in Taksim Square, and the PM group continued to the restaurant for the free lunch. The tour in the Dolmabahce Palace was awesome, too bad no photos allowed inside. Then we proceeded to the Asia side of Turkey for a quick panoramic photo-op of the city. Fighting through the traffic was half the battle.

This was a very organised aid out tour. We travelled during the state holidays and a couple of the thing we had planned were closed but our guide filled n the day with extras that were not on the original plan. So very happy

The service was good the local guide brilliant I suffer with Tinnitus and could hear everything he was saying,and he was very informative. I could have done without the fashion show the jackets were well above my budget if including this helps with the price of the trip so be it. However excluding that I thoroughly recommend this trip. .
