We were very lucky to have the same tour guide for this tour, once again his knowledge about Istanbul was outstanding, we learned a lot and we are making plans to return to Turkey again.

Great tour. Very informative guide and very well paced. Prepare for plenty of walking, although thankfully the main attractions are quite close together. Highly recommended.

The long walks was well worth it and you get to have enough time to enjoy each place at your own pace.

Were a little disappointed as we were looking forward to visiting the Topkapi palace which is shut on a Monday but this was not advised when we booked.The other sights were worth the visit and the guide had great local knowledge

Tour guide was very knowledgeable, and kept us on a reasonable schedule. Often walked a little fast for the mix of the group. Did a good. Could have dropped off the last church and added the Cistern for a more balanced tour.

This was a good tour to some interesting and famous attractions, but it was not the tour we had booked and paid for. The tour we booked included an afternoon at the Topkapi Palace, and this was confirmed in the tour information we received from Viator. However, we discovered on the day, that the Palace is not open on a Tuesday, and we would like to know how Viator allowed us to book this tour on a Tuesday. We would appreciate your comments on this, as we feel that we paid for something we did not get.
Secondly, although our Plan Tours guide was very knowledgeable, his English was not clear enough for a number of members of our tour group.
Finally, the post tour drop off took over two hours and included what seemed a lengthy diversion to somewhere in Beyoglu to drop off the tour guide before eventually returning to Sultanahmet. Surely the tour guide should have been the last person to be dropped off.
For these reasons, we cannot rate the tour more highly.

Despite a misty, chilly and eventually windy day, the tour took in the main sites if interest in the Sultanahmet. We saw The Blue Mosque - peaceful, impressive architecture; Hagia Sophia - impressive in stature, but looking a bit worn out and much restorative work with scaffolding and no-go areas included; the Hippodrome - really just nice walk with a couple of obelisks and again an under-scaffold bell/or well tower thingy. Lunch was OK - a bit tourist-fodder with some eclectic foods on the same plate. After lunch we visited some mausoleums at the back of the Hagia Sophia - peaceful area, then onto Topkapi palace, again imporessive, although the mist prevented us from admiring the view across the Bosphorus and the Sea of Mamaris.
To be quite honest, we could have done it all without a guide - the attractions are all in the same area, so the bus was completely unnecessary. In fact, we walked back to our hotel, via the Basilica Cistern which wasn't included on the tour (but should be). However, our guide was good and we don't begrudge paying out on our first trip to Istanbul.

The tour was just OK. The palace tour was cancelled coz was closed and ended up seeing more old orthodox churches. We felt the tour should have been more varied and not just seeing old site of Istanbul etc etc. also, there was a big complaint since it was hot and the AC was not working. But the driver and guide insisted the AC was OK leading to a few arguments. The lunch was below average. We were also combined with Spanish speakers so that translations took a while. The lines into the mosque etc were quite long and standing in the very hot sun for long periods was not fun. I would rather have paid more and done a 'skip the line' tour.
