The guida was excellent!!
Started in a dull way but ended up with a blast.
I had a wonderful day on this tour, I felt like we saw so much. It felt like we spent a lot of time waiting for the bus to pick other people up or drop them off though because the full day tour was combined with the half day tour. I was afraid the cruise would be too cold in the winter but it was quite spacious and warm on the below deck and you could just go to the open upper deck intermittently to take all the pictures you wanted. I really enjoyed to Dolmabahce Palace, it was absolutely beautiful and I absolutely recommend it if you are visiting Istanbul.
Although we booked this particular tour through Viator, the day before this tour was cancelled due to lack of numbers however the replacement tour we were offered was hugely enjoyable and very well organised from start to finish. Many thanks.
Great guide and very nice tour around the city. Highly recommended.
Tour was a nice way to get a tour of the Bosphorus and a nice view from top of Golden Horn. Not really a must do, but good enough for what was promised.
It was as I expected, but the coordination for the pickup was not good. I was given a phone contact number but could never got someone in the other line. Fortunately the staff in the hotel was smart enough to connect me to the tour company.
My client rated it 4 stars-she had a wonderful time.

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.
Canceled on us twice and really cost us a lot of time on our vacation. Be wary that there are not many people traveling to istanbul these days and this trip will not take off without a large amount of commitments.
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.
