The guide was informative and the tour was appropriate in length. It was a great way to see Istanbul from the water. The Dolmabahce Palace was great. We have toured several of the great palaces of Europe. It ranks up there with the best of them.
The palace is incredible with all the history, the art, and the treasure.
Interesting, beautiful view, very knowledgebile Guide, well organized.
Enjoyed this tour the most of the tours we did in Istanbul. The Spice Markets are incredible, smell, noise, soak it up whatever you do. The palace you have enough time to see the must see and you have the option of staying if you want to see more. Probably could have left the tour there, but if you want to see the Asian side definitely go.

Great job of our guide. All day tour and nobody felt tired. Very intelligent , calm and knows 3 languages . Polite. Planed to write more, but time pass, cannot remember details.
Perfect, even if the weather wasnt! Knowledgeable and friendly guide, excellent transportation.
Very nice tour, the full day so one must be prepared to walk and see a lot. 99.9% walking tour.
This was a good tour, and our guide was very knowledgeable and made it very entertaining. We enjoyed the tour to the palace most of all. Will recommend. The only minor reservation was that we were joined by German speaking tourists, so the guide kept switching from English to German constantly.
Istanbul is a beautiful city and the cruise was incredible because of the beautiful sightseeing. The Dolmabahce Palace was something unexpected, very well preserved, magnificent palace that worth a visit.
A great tour and a must for your list of things to do, the cruise was fabulous and informative, the Palace interesting
This tour was definitely a must for any traveler to Istanbul , the Dolmache palace took our breath away , the cruise on the Bospherous was enjoyable and easy .
Our guide was very experienced and had a lot of knowledge . We went to some lovely sites and had a great time
This tour was excellent, we enjoyed every minute of it. We were picked up right on time at the Hilton Hotel and we loved seeing all the sights. We will choose Viator every time we travel. Thank you for making our travel experience in Istanbul so easy and wonderful.
This tour was amazing! We had a wonderful day with an extremely helpful tour guide who waited for us when we were late for the bus, helped us with small issues, and showed care and concern for all the fellow tourists. Moreover, the cruise was the highlight of the day, followed by the magnificent Dolmabahce Palace. Excellent work Plan Tours!
I love the tour, it was very informative. We had a very good guide and I forgot this name now, but he knew his stuff. The only part of the tour I would substitute is the Leather Factory Tour. I believe we could have visited another area in place of that, then after lunch if we choose to get something there, we can. Overall I loved it, I am planning to return and this time take a tour of the mosques, Vasilica Cistern, and might do some balloon rides.
I had a wonderful day on this tour, I felt like we saw so much. It felt like we spent a lot of time waiting for the bus to pick other people up or drop them off though because the full day tour was combined with the half day tour. I was afraid the cruise would be too cold in the winter but it was quite spacious and warm on the below deck and you could just go to the open upper deck intermittently to take all the pictures you wanted. I really enjoyed to Dolmabahce Palace, it was absolutely beautiful and I absolutely recommend it if you are visiting Istanbul.
GOOD INFORMATIVE TOUR. SMALLER GROUPS/COACHES WOULD HAVE MADE FOR A BETTER EXPERIENCE
This is a great tour. Would have given a 5 if the tour agency didnt decide to also include German ... and French! in the tour that was suppose to be english only. please stop doing that
