Tour hits all the main awesome spots. A little bit of walking which I don't mind. Best part was our tour guide. Was very informative and knowledgeable about the history and current stuff. Great tour.

Our tour guide was amazing! Despite having a small group of 8 - the expectations were all quite unique. The guide ensured that everyone had the time needed at their particular place of interest and set meeting and alternate places to view in the meantime. He maintained complete supervision of the entire group and everyone was happy! It is the best way to see Istanbul in a day - we combined this tour with the Skip the Line Hard Rock Café Istanbul which made for a very interesting day - going from the Old City to the New city.

The tour with Akin was wonderful! There were only four of us and the whole experience was very personable and fun. Akin from the local tour operator is very knowledgeable and he showed / explained a lot of things outside of what and #39;s required by the tour.

Would certainly recommend this tour!

I saw the Hitman and Taken 2 a movie and said to myself that one day I would go to those temples. I realized my dream and Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, the Grand Bazaar, and the Basilica Cistern did not disappoint. I am a student of Roman history and geography and I can honestly say that books do not do justice to the real thing.

Although there was quite a downpour on the day of the tour, our small group was able to visit all the sites listed. My favorite was the Basilica Cistern! The tour guide provided quality information and service, as did the driver. We were able to skip the lines at most locations, and our lunch was delicious too! Although none in our group was interested in purchasing an expensive rug near the end of the tour, the visit to the rug shop was interesting as was the walk through the Grand Bazaar. I highly recommend this tour to anyone stopping in or traveling through Istanbul!

If you only have a day or two in Istanbul this is the tour for you. We saw all the main sites with an excellent guide who really knew her history and art. We toured from 8:30 am until 4:30 so it was a long day. We walked every where so wear comfortable shoes. The included lunch was great at a local restaurant. Hagia Sophia was amazing.

Excellent guide who provided in-depth information about the city of Istanbul, its history and culture, historical sites, and especially its people. A full day for sure catching the top venues of the Old City. My only disappointment was missing the Spice Bazaar - perhaps less time in the Grand Bazaar the next time? Overall, exceeded our expectations. Thank you!

Gulay was one of the best tour guides I've ever met and this tour was incredible to say the least. There were only two of us on the tour travel in the off season! so the entire experience was very personal. I felt like we had more than enough time in each one of the destinations, although I did go back to the Blue Mosque again to explore a bit more. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for a comprehensive tour of all the sights in the Old City of Istanbul!

The tour although short is very comprehensive which encompasses the major historical and tourist sites of Istanbul. The guide was knowledgeable and was able to describe the history of the sites visited. Her recommendations of various places to eat were also spot on. Will certainly recommend this tour.

Our tour was great and our tour guide very good. She answered all our questions. I really enjoyed the
meal and our walks through the old town. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is coming to
Istanbul for the first time. It gives you a good overall view of the highlights of the must see in Istanbul

My group of friends and I had a wonderful experience with this tour. We only had two days in Istanbul so it was a great way to see the most important sites in a short time. Our guide, Adil, was very friendly and knowledgeable and gave us such a great insight into the history and culture of the city. Although we went to a lot of sites in one day, it did not feel rushed and being a part of the tour we did not have to wait in the long ticket lines. Thank you for a great tour!

The tour was great. Omer our guide was very informative and patient with our questions. Made sure we had time to really explore the sites and take pictures. I feel like I really learned a great deal about Turkish history and culture while enjoying myself. Hotel pickup was prompt and the tour van was comfortable and air conditioned.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Istanbul and this tour. The Blue mosque and the Hagia Sophia were amazing!!! The Palace was great too. I didn't realize how much history Turkey has and enjoyed listening to our tour guide Omar. He was amazing and a great storyteller.
