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.
Great tour! Best way to see all the city's highlights at your own pace! I recommend getting on both the Red and Blue Line to take in all the sites and sounds. What a beautiful city it is!
First order of the day when visiting Istanbul for the first time!

Fantastic, outstanding and a great value for the money. ARUK AND HAITHAM were very very helpful in directing us how to best use the tour !!! would highly recommend this everyone - especially senior citizens, saves you from too much walking !!!
Surprisingly good! Staff was on hand two blocks from stop to direct us to the bus. Boarding staff at all stops pleasant and helpful. Enjoyed the ride very much. Only beware is Istanbul has a lot of traffic, so we were extra glad we chose this option.
The bus tour was great! The only downside was that the stop closest to us was closed for the day, due to the President coming to town...so we had to walk quite a way to the next stop.
Excellent...You get to see Istanbul and all the main attractions.The information on the headphones is very clear and informative and will definitely use this tour again.I did not get to take much pictures as I went on a day that was really cold and my hands were frozen 0and did not get to use my full 48 hours as I was sick with flu the following day, but enjoyed the tour immensely and was the highlight of my trip...100 recommend this tour.Bus is easy to locate and the connecting bus was waiting for us, the staff were helpful and friendly...VERY GOOD/çok güzel 0
Great way to see and get around Istanbul. Goes to almost all of the major tourist destinations.
It was absolutely worth taking the hop-on hop off bus tour. I only went for 12 hours, and this tour was brilliant. It took us to all the main tourist sites. It is easy to find at Sultan Ahmet and buses run very regularly. Well recommended, and best way to explore the entire city. I would travel again in the Big Bus if i visit Istanbul again.
This is a nice tour when you want to see the prime spots of Istanbul and you are only staying for a short period of time. It covers everything in 2 days.
We had a great experience picking up the Bus close to the Blue Mosque and the Tour included crossing the Bridge into Asia I highly recommend both tours that are available
My trip to Istanbul was great. The hop on hop off bus is the perfect way to see the city.
This tour was fantastic as it allowed us to get our bearings and the lay out of the city. A MUST DO...
Had a fantastic time was on my own and had a blast and felt really safe lots of lovely people.
Fabulous excursion with the added bonus of crossing a bridge into Asia Minor! Loved Istanbul!
Most of the interesting stuff to see is on the Red Line. It is a great way to get around in the city. The earlier you start, the better it is. Remember that in the evening after 3.30 pm when the traffic starts it could take you hours to finish the loop. Nothing you can do....as you are just stuck in traffic.
Always our first choice when travelling. The Big Bus ride around the City gives you a good 'lay of the land' and you get a good sense of the layout and what areas appeal to you. We did the 2 day pass and took advantage of it.
I have had tours of the city before but doing it this way was definitely the best and far more informative about Istanbul, forget the private tours and use this hop on hop off bus. Only way to get to all the attractions.
This is by far the best way to see the city. It takes in all the main sites, the buses are clean and frequent, and the commentary is extremely informative. The Red Route is outstanding, the Blue less so. Really enjoyed it.
This was an excellent way to see Istanbul. We also took a tour of istanbut from our cruise ship the following week and did not see any more and we were rushed then we saw with the big bus tour. this is an economical and leasurly way to see the whole city.
This is a really great way to get round Istanbul. We enjoyed our tours on the blue and red routes.
