we throughly enjoyed this day trip. Our guide Hakan was a very pleasant and knowledgeable guide. I have been on several tours with other guides in other cities and this is the best one I have experienced so far.
Excellent. I will be looking out for Viator on my next holiday.
This was the best tour we had on our Mediterranean cruise. The guide was outstanding.
excellent way to see the main tourist sites of Istanbul in a day. Very good guide and generally well organized and well timed tour. Very nice lunch also.
I had a fantastic day while on this tour-Gulay my tour guide was great,got to see all the major sights,and a tasty lunch in-between,I would highly recommend this tour
The tour was great. The guide - Omar was very informative and intelligent. He's a real professional. It was really interesting to listen to him. He even showed us how the carpeted are been made. I will definitely recommend this tour to my friends!
We very much enjoyed our walking tour of Istanbul. The weather was quite awful but the places we visited were so interesting that it did not matter. The guide, Omar, ( I think it may be spelled differently) was very knowledgeable and was able to answer the many questions we asked him. It was great to bypass all of the lines to get into the sites. We also went into the Basilica Cistern which I had not expected to do on the tour, so that was a great bonus. I could have done without lunch and perhaps the visit to the carpet manufacturer although neither thing spoiled the tour. I can recommend this tour and Omar.
family visit to Istanbul was wonderful , so glad to have booked tour our guide was excellent and very informative it is a must for travellers with limited time many thanks
This was a very thorough tour. We got to see a lot and learn a lot. Our guide was very pleasant. The lunch was just ok.
just spent 30 minutes keying review but your system has failed to add it to other reviews!!!
This fast-paced tour really covered the impressive sights of the city. We loved it.
We had a great experience with the local tour operator for this one day Istanbul tour. Hakan, our tour guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable. He set a nice casual pace for our tour and made sure we all had enough time to explore on our own a bit and take pictures at each location.
Best tour guide ever. I have taken many tours and she was the best ever. I forget her name, but I believe it means river in Turkish. She would take everyones pictures, she was patient with everyone and she would ask us if we had any questions. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. This tour shows you all the main sites in the old city. So worth it. Best tour in my two week vacation.
Excellent tour, collected from hotel at time stated and had a personnal guided tour of the above attractions. The guide was very informative and gave us an insite to Istanbul which we would never had managed to do on our own. Overall well worth it and I would recommend this tour to everyone.
Hit all the historical high spots of Istanbul. Omar, our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke very well.
He picked us up at the hotel on time and the tour went like clockwork. Only a dozen of us on the tour which was good.
Well worth the money.
Our guide Gulay was fantastic, she was so knowledgeable and was keen to answer all queries and questions.
The best way to see Istanbul is on foot, and she was very keen not to go at too fast a pace and always made sure that we were all ok.
Well worh it - especially for a first time visitor to highlight places to go back to outside the tour.
Knowlagable tour guide and "good pased" tour.
Good way to see the city highlights in one day. Excellent and informative guide who took a lot of care to ensure that the group got the most out of the day, including pointing out the best shops in the Grand Bazaar for items we were interested in.
We took this tour on our first day. It was very full and interesting, taking us to all the wonderful historical sites. We enjoyed the information given by our lovely female tour guide. We enjoyed lunch and then visited the cistern which is a marvel. Onto a rug distributor which was fascinating but hard sell- we bought a rug! We then visited the Grand Bazaar and were somewhat intimidated by the pushy selling techniques. This tour is well worth it as it oriented us to the location, history and culture.
Fast and furious one day to see the best of Istanbul...this tour does it!Fabulous guide,locations,food and information.Thanks Viatiour.
Wonderful small group tour. Saw all the great sights (more than some other tours) with a great young guide that was knowledgeable and personable. This is the second time I have used Viator and was most pleased!
