It was a great experience to join this tour, a great value, and was everything as described. It was also a small group which made it almost like a private tour. Very good lunch.The tour guide Gulay was excellent and very knowledgeable. She kept us entertained during the ride to the sites and provided valuable information of what we were about to see and during the site seeing as well. I would highly recommend this tour.
Tour was great. Our guide seemed like she was our friend walking us through her city and answered any questions we had. We enjoyed the sights, relaxing lunch, and even took her to hookah in the Grand Bazaar after.
Stunning places on this trip. We enjoyed it immensely. Highlight for us was the visit to the Cistern - which is curious as we didn't even realise we were going there!
It was a great experience to join this tour. The tour guide explained the history of Istanbul well who enabled me to travel thru time and imagined myself as part of the history. Thank you for such great tour.
We signed up for this tour for our first day in Instanbul and it was well worth it. We were picked up on time and visited the major sites in the Old City and ended at the Grand Bazaar. Tour guide was informed and interesting. Included a lunch which was ok and not great, but certainly acceptable. I recommend this tour.
Awesome tour. Thorough and carefree. You can walk to all these places. About 30 minute walk to grand bazaar from Topkapi Palace. The Topkapi is right near the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. A full day if you want it to explore it over and over and just people watch.
Highly recommended and will definitely use Viator for future visits. The Tour Guide was amazing!
The tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. She kept us entertained during the ride to the sites and provided valuable information of what we were about to see and during the site seeing as well. The sites were beautiful and highly recommended.
The tour guide is great! She speaks fluent English and was very efficient in getting us into the attractions. We had a great time.
Our tour guide was excellent. Full of knowledge, excellent comand of the english language. Great historian!!
The tour guide Omar was great. I would recommend this to any and all who are slightly limited on time and want to get the most out of their day. What I loved most about the tour was the fact that because it was pre booked and organised we did not have to cue up in massive lines on any of the sights etc. For this point alone I would highly recommend it as I did Dolmabachae palace on our own and had to stand in line for nearly 2 hours just to get in. The food was good too. The only complaint I have is that we were sort of forced by the tour guide to go to a couple of his mates places that sell carpets and leather goods etc. I suppose he has some sort of commission tied up there. It was supposed to be a cultural learning experience but was more of a sales pitch.
