Tour was fantastic. Very nice and relaxing and well organized.
Only thing we did not enjoy was the hard sale at the carpet shop.
Our tour guide was well informed and a genuine nice guy.
Absolutely brilliant tour, got to see the main attractions in Istanbul. Recommend to anyone!
It's amazing and Barack our tour guide was good and patient with us.
It was an excellent tour. Our tour director's name is Omar. He is an amazing guide. He is prompt, courteous, knowledgeable, and professional. My mom has mobility issues and he was very helpful with her and her wheelchair. I thank all of you for providing us with a positive and excellent sightseeing tour of Istanbul.
Our informative and helpful tour guide brought the history of Istanbul to light with facts and anecdotes I found fascinating. The small tour group progressed well - a larger group would have led to delays and frustration in the many congested sights on the tour.
Must do for everyone if this is your first time in Istanbul and you are only going to be there for a short time. Get a lot seen all at once
Really comprehensive tour - it does cover a lot in one day which is great but also be prepared that there isn't a lot of break time! Very informative and enthusiastic guide with perfect English. The 3 course meal at lunchtime was also excellent which was pleasantly surprising. Very good value
Excellent tour. Highlights and background of each historic location as advertised. Guide was knowledgeable and accommodating. Transportation was comfortable and timely.
This tour was absolutely amazing. Our tour guide, Gerk Han was very knowlegable and very friendly. The included lunch was also delicious. Definitely a must, when in Istanbul
Excellent and very informative tour! Well worth doing and would recommend to anyone who wishes to see this great city! Juluy was the perfect guide supplying us with a very knowledgeable account about each place we visited as well as other little gems of information and places to eat. Well worth every penny and more. Thank you again.

Hakan, our guide was very personable and informative and very patient with the group.
Good English language skills and fun to be with.
This was the ideal way to see the major attractions of Istanbul in one day. Our guide Omar was excellent. He was very familiar with the history of each place as well as full of unusual tidbits of information. The tour took us to the front of the line at each of the attractions, enabling us to pack more things into the day. I would highly recommend this tour to anybody wanting or needing to see Istanbul in a single day.
Amazing and very informative. Touch all of the top sites with enough time and the walk isn't bad at all. Enjoy this great city.
Absolutely worth it! Great guide, get to see all sites in one day and most of all you don't waste time waiting in lines to buy tickets. Had I done this on my own, I would have at least spent 3 days. Overall, a great experience! Would definitely recommend.
Very good tour. Well organized and everything on time. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and everything went at a good pace, with sufficient free time.
This was an amazing experience! The monuments, especially the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque, are among the most beautiful works of architecture in the world that we've seen so far. And the tour guide was extremely informative and kept us as engaged as he could. The tour was longer than advertised we were dropped off around 6 pm. But it was worth it. There was even a surprise stop at a carpet dealer's showroom, and we were given a fascinating introduction to the tradition and evolution of carpet-making in Turkey. We got 1 hour at the Grand Bazaar, and bought some beautiful handicrafts there. It is a huge place, and full of local fashion and handicraft shops.
One thing I should mention is that we tried to bargain everywhere we went, and managed to bring the price down over 50 percent in some shops. I bought a camera in the city, and even some of those shops lowered the price when I asked if there are any discounts.
Excellent tour. Omar was a good guide who had very helpful information and kept the group organized.
Excellent tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and very efficient at getting us inside all the historical sites in a record time during one of the busiest weekends in instanbul. Highly recommended.
