Well worth the money and time. The places included in the tour were stunning. We wish we had more time to check out Istanbul. Great city. Our guide was very knowledgeable and showed pride in sharing the highlights of his city.

Much to our surprise we were the only people to show up for this tour. A lot of the passengers on our cruise ship decided not to go ashore.
Tanner ,our Guide was one of the best we have ever had. Very knowledgeable , excellent English , very polite. We had enough time to enjoy the sights and absorb the culture. Tanner pointed out things that we would have overlooked. Time was allowed for us to have some independent exploring at each site. Tanner was readily available if we had any questions. Plus it seemed that the more questions you asked the better liked it. He is very proud of his country , without imposing it on others. We stopped a very nice restaurant and had a great traditional meal.
At the end of the day we were tired from all of the walking , but it was a happy well spent day tired. One final note. All day we spent out in town and never felt threatened. The turkish people were very friendly and polite.
