5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

As bad as the Athens by Night Tour was, this was just superb. We were taken to an elegant dinner theater, saw a truly outstanding professionally produced show,had a really good meal which was graced by attentive, professioanl service. It was a night to remember. The' Istanbul By Night' part of the tour was disappointing in that we just drove directly to the theater and never saw the major sights indicated in the tour description. (The Blue Mosque is prominently pictured in the advertisement for the Tour yet we never saw it...actually we drove in the opposite direction!) Nevertheless, we were really pleased with the show and dinner which were the major reasons for us booking the tour.

The evening was very pleasant, we thought the comediene at the end was excellent. Transportation on time, Driver was very informative

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2012

The dinner is mediocre at best. Beware that small parties have the worst tables, far away from the stage, while large tour groups have the center tables. The performances were uneven. One out of three belly dancers performed with some passion; others went through the motions, quite mechanical. Folk dancing performances were repetitive and boring at times. The restaurant ambiance is totally touristy, lacking even the most minimum cultural character. Nontheless, we have never seen belly dancing in person before so the evening was not entirely a waste of time.

The driver didn't speak English at all. There was no evening tour. The restaurant was only a few minutes drive. The driver didn't know where to take us, so he had to make a phone call and talk with someone else.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this October 2014

No Tour Guide
Poor Dinner

1 star rating: I do not recommend this July 2013

The belly dancing was excellent but that was all....no sightseeing or anything else. You can go to the Hilton by yourself and see the show for much less
