Booked the 48 hr ticket as we had 5 days to explore Istanbul. This is the best way to see the city as the traffic is extreme, the bus stops at or close to all the major sites. Did this and the bosphorous river cruise and saw everything without all the walking.

Wonderful tour! The tour guide spoke perfect english and was very knowledgable. Would highly recommend this to everyone!
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.
We would definitely recommend this tour with Fez agency. They were well organized, great hotels, lovely personel. Our driver qnd tour guide were fantastic and we had so mucg fun. Turkey's tourism is suffering as a result of airport assault and coup earlier this year which meant fewer tourists at keu sites good for us not for Turkish economy. There is absolutely no reasonto avoid travel to Turkey. We felt very safe.
Absolutely covers the highlights if you are there for a short stay. Guelay was a great guide ...knowledgeable, friendly, and flexible. The day of our tour the bazaar was closed so we did the spice market, which frankly is probably a better experience anyway and most on our tour group were glad to have this tour, including recommendations where to buy goods without getting suckered.
Very friendly guide
Location, we got to see a new area
Time, we started a bit late and we spent most time on the road
we had to go through most of the sites quickly so it was more of a glimpse
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.
Very frustrating!!! The receptionist who was not very friendly did not know about Viator and did not even recognize the Viator voucher. I had to tell him to look at the reservations in his computer. The description said this was supposed to be a two-hour experience but my experience was just less than one hour. I was made to stay in the steam room for 20 mins. The actual scrub took only 15 mins. Afterwhich, I was asked to dress up. I felt shortchanged. Instead of leaving the Turkish Bath feeling relaxed, I left feeling very stressed out. Do not take this tour!!!

Our guide was fantastic very helpful everything about the experience was great couldn't fault it
Tibet our tour guide was extremely knowledgable regarding the various sites and history of the Ottoman Empire. We were given plenty of time to explore each attraction, however less time could be allocated to the rug shop.
Nice tour, lovely guide who was very knowledgeable.
There were 5 people on the tour all up.

For the money you can't beat this tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The hotels were adequate and the meals were good.

Fun tour and informative. My only complaint was that we didn't have time to have a coffee before the cable car ride.
