Great tour. Everything crammed in.
We loved our tour of the Istanbul sites and in particular, our guide. She was fabulous, so helpful and responsive.
This was the best thing I could have done in the limited time I had in the city. Our Turkish guide, with good English, was very knowledgeable and led us through the various Empires layered upon each other. Being a small group was friendly, and felt very safe. We had a relaxed lunchtime with interesting discussion. Plenty of time in the market and loads of walking on a very cold day. I ended up having a much deeper feeling for Islam, the magnificent buildings, and the history of this great city.It should be mentioned in the blurb that this tour involves a fair bit of walking.
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.
My wife and I are not big fans of organized tours but the 7 day Turkey Classics tour was a fantastic experience that we would highly recommend to other travelers. Our guide, Ahmet, was funny, knowledgeable, and truly cared that we had the best experience possible. The van, the hotels and the food were all top notch. We were in Turkey in late October when the US State Department had issued travel warnings about possible terrorist activity. We felt completely safe and comfortable on this tour.
I always feel a bit uncomfortable seeing a religious experience / ritual turned into a tourist spectacle, but if it is to be done, these guys find a good tasteful way to do it. Not sure if there are competing dervish shows in Istanbul, but attend this one with confidence.

Amazing tour, beautiful places to visit, Unforgettable experience. Our guide, Famous, was so kind.
Tour was very knowledgeable and got us straight to the front of every line, which had we gone alone, could have taken a lot of time to find and reach the front of. Highly recommend!
excellent--no words to describe!!!
was very good one... hope i had more days of stay to look around
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.

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.

My client rated it 4 stars-she had a wonderful time.

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.
