Our guide was wonderful! She was on time and really knew the history of Istanbul. She answered all of our questions. Best of all, she took extra care to make sure we were happy with our overall experience of Turkey!
This private tour was excellent. However, once again the description of the tour was insuffiicient. As above is advertised as Hagia Sofia and Grand Bazaar, however, it would have included the blue mosque but since it wasn't mentioned in the description, we went to see it the day before by oursselves. A waste of our precious time in Istanbul!!!
An excellent and knowledgable guide who was able to speak excellent English and gave us a really interesting tour through the major tourist sites. His enthusiasm for his city and its history was outstanding. We had a great time. Well worth doing for first time visitors.
would greatly recommend this tour. Our guide was so informative and very friendly. She was also flexible and great with our children. These sites of Istanbul are truly extraordinary. A must see!
The trip was ok, nice transportation, nice guide. Would recommend.
I have already raised a complaint that is being looked into by the local tour operator as we discovered that the Grand Bazaar was closed on the day that we were due to see it and yet I had still been able to book the tour and no advise was given that it was a public holiday. The Grand Bazaar was the main attraction that we wanted to see so we were very disappointed that we had to do this on our own. Please note that the guide and her knowledge were excellent for what we saw and she did try to reschedule but was unable to do so.
