It was a lot to see in one day. But very good. Out tour guide was excellent
Absolute wonderful. Hakan was very good and he made our time in Istanbul exciting.
THANK YOU !!
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.
Tibet our guide was very articulate and patient and got us truly interested in the history of istanbul.We enjoyed the lunch.Cheers!

Excellent tour. Well organised. And the best part was the very knowledgeable Guide we had for the Tour, with a lot of desire to share her knowledge. Do not remember the name of the lady but a BIG THANK YOU to her from us.
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.
Great value for money. Knowledgeable and courteous guide (Ms. Gulai). I would highly recommend this tour operator and use it again.
The tour guide was phenomenal! Very knowledgeable of the area and the sights!
We had a wonderful sightseeing day! Omar was GREAT! He was knowledgeable and very professional. The lunch was wonderful too. We really enjoyed seeing all the places on the itinerary. We plan to use you again.
Magnificent!! Our tour guide - Borat - was very knowledgeable and totally fun!!! Had a BLAST!!!
It's a must for any first timer in the city.
The tour is really nice and it is worth it specially in avoiding the long long waiting in the tickets line as you will get to skip all that.
Our tour guide is a really nice guy with really great information about all the attractions we visited and ready to answer any questions about them.
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.
A great tour to see the most historic places in the city in one day with queue skipping. I highly recommend this tour, great value, great tour guide.
