The tour was relaxing and comfortable. The tour guides were very friendly and helpful. There were only the 10 of us on a big boat and we could just lie on the benches on the roof and tan. Swimming in black sea was just amazing. The water was clear and and warm. Would definitely do this again.
Excellent full day tour with a wonderful guide. Got to see everything I wanted to see: Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern. Had a tasty Turkish lunch included in the price, and afterwards continued to the Grand Bazaar, Spice Market and took the Bosphorus boat tour. Due to the current situation in Turkey, there were absolutely no lines outside the attractions. However this is a city like no other, and shouldn't be missed.
perfect pick up/drop off at our hotel. boat was clean and well stocked could have used a bottle of water enroute to Maiden's Tower. Several stops along the way--all worth seeing. lots of snacks and drinks at appropriate times along the way. Would have been nice to know that the last stop was for eating/drinking, nothing much to see at small fishing village. Guide was adequate wish he'd quit pulling at his marginal beard...distracting. Weather was perfect. Head was clean. Good value for the money.
Really enjoyed seeing the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, etc - this first part of the day was fantastic! Was less than thrilled with the quick wander through the Grand Bazzar and Spice Market - there was little time to look. Finally as we are getting ready to get on board for the river cruise our guide tells us that he needs cash from us to pay for our fare as the credit card he was given wasn't working but that he would reimburse us. As you can imagine not everyone had exact change and by the end of the tour there were several of us who were still owed money for the cruise we already paid for when we booked the tour.
Nice tour, lovely guide who was very knowledgeable.
There were 5 people on the tour all up.

Fun tour and informative. My only complaint was that we didn't have time to have a coffee before the cable car ride.
Excellent tour and guides. Highly recommended.
the cruise was very nice, the Bosphorus at night it was magical. I recommend this tour because the night in the Bosphorus is something to remember. Other words it is beautiful experience.

Very interesting. Could be more filled with site visits. Guide well informed and pleasant.
Nice boat trip. Guide was very good but not really the overview of the city I was expecting.
The Bosphorus cruise was interesting and worth doing. The Cable Car Ride was disappointing as it was very short perhaps 2 minutes. It would have been better if we could have had more time at the place the Cable Car leaves from as there are markets and a nice cliff top restaurant, this was all a bit rushed. Our guide also had both French and English people on the tour and needed to translate to both.
The tour was very informative and worth the money. Staff were also friendly and welcoming. The only thing I suggest be improved is clarification of the meeting point on the day of the tour if hotel pick up is not available.
A great way to relax and see some interesting sights outside the city. Our guide and the crew were excellent. Food and snacks were good and served throughout the tour. Hoping things get better for our friends in Turkey.
Our guide was extremely knowlesgeable and patient. If someone wanted to buy anything he would provide guidance to get the best items at the best price.
It was an amazing tour!!!
This trip to Istanbul was amazing, more than I was expecting.Extremely beautiful city,friendly people,good food and nice weather.
A good relaxed half day tour introducing you to the Bosphorus and Istanbul. Recommended.
Wonderful cruise, good food and great entertainment
The tour was very interesting and our guide was excellent. I would surely recommend it to people who visit Istanbul for the first time. The ladies would have liked to spend more time in the market but I was relieved we didn't.
Beautiful scenery on the Bosphorous. Food was reasonable. I wasn't expecting so many people. The dancing show was on the upper deck but the stage view was limited due to the number of people in front of us.
Chaotic beginning with poor service. Never got drink order even after several requests. Last hour was a total waste of time as only watching other customers dance. Surely better cruises out there.
The tour we paid for was supposed to be a full day with a lunch and a cruise as well as all the other highlights. We were done before lunch. We did not get a lunch, a cruise or the Grand Bazaar or the Spice Bazaar. We only did the Hagis Sophis, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern and Hipodome. The young woman who was our tour guide was very knowledgable about the history and the part we did get was well done but I feel very ripped off with what I paid and what we got. I would not pay for a tour with you in the future because we have no recourse for what we spent and what we got for that. Maybe a communication breakdown in what we paid for and what was communicated to the local tour group.
