We had a great time. Tibet was our guide and she was so thorough. She even gave us the bonus of visiting a rug maker she knows. She was completely knowledgable and spoke excellent English. She has a nice sense of humor. She gave us some free time to look at things on our own which was nice. I would definitely recommend this tour and feel Viator is the most reliable booking agency. We booked the private tour and were picked up at the door of our hotel. Our guide arrived promptly. Everything was very organized.

my guide named Gualy (pronounced July) was fantastic. Blue Mosque was crazy busy that day so instead of waiting for hours she suggested to go to H. Sophia, which used our time much more efficiently. She was passionate about her city and shared her love of history and art with us.

Although the weather was not very cooperative, we enjoyed our half day tour of Istanbul with our private guide from Neon Tours. She was a wealth of information and even helped us find a good place to eat lunch and told us how to get to the Grand Bazaar. Our driver even gave us his umbrella!

Our guide was really knowledgeable and very easy to tour these sites with. I will say our crowd was a little less interested in all the details of the vast history and more interested in the overall story. Its hard to gauge I know. Our group is just not used to standing and listening to someone talk for long periods of time. Our guide did a great job and we really enjoyed the trip. We'd do it again and have already recommended it to friends.

Very much enjoyed our guide & tour. Would have liked to have the harem rooms included at Topkapi Palace instead of the Grand Bazaar, which we ended up doing on our own.

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

I felt very rushed while touring Topkapi Palace, and this was a private tour! We had about an hour at Blue Mosque. Most of the tours in Istanbul felt very rushed.
