Driver met us at the ship on time, very professional, and courteous driver. Dinner show was fantastic. The food was so-so. Ride back to the ship was memorable. We definitely recommend!

Fun evening. The food was just mediocre, and we were not given any options on food. The atmosphere was very fun and lively. The show was entertaining. We were the only people in our van, so it was like having a private driver. Other people on the ship were there who had bought the package through the ship and paid much more than we did. Other ship passengers used taxis and paid much more for the taxis than we did for this package. Beware of taxi scams in Turkey. This would be a 5 star if the food was a little better.

The driver was waiting at the port entrance about 10 minutes early with a very beautiful van. Note that the driver does not speak the entire 20 minute drive to the restaurant which was awkward. However, he was a good driver and it was a nice drive through part of Istanbul. The restaurant was beautiful and the staff was so friendly! Entertainment was amazing and so was the food and I'm picky. We loved the food and the dancers were so impressive. The last act was a man that sang national anthems or songs from the audiences native countries. It ended the night on a great note. One of the best things we did in Istanbul! Highly recommend this!

We had a nice night out on this tour. As we were not with the large bus crowds, we got a great table and were served our dinner and drinks first. The entertainment was fun and the food was good.

Pick up and drop off were to schedule, the venue was 90% booked out, seating was not favorable for one of us, we were seated in an alcove behind a pillar parallel to the back of the stage, despite empty seats at the back of the room facing the stage??? When I commented that i could not see, the waiter said it is ok the stage comes out, you will be able to see the show. I think he should have sat there to experience what you actually cannot see. It was impossible to keep leaning over the table to see around the pillar for the whole of the show. The food was not as inviting as in the advertised pictures. The show was enjoyable, well presented, encouraging all to take a part, but i would not go again.

We felt this experience was adequate at best. The dancers were good, but we were not well seated to enjoy the show. The long tables were very crowded and the servers rushed.
The food was OK, the appetizers were the best part, the rest ordinary. Overall the experience was very touristy and we would not repeat it.
