What people are saying about Istanbul

VERY SURPRISED! My husband and I took this boat trip on the 8th of November. Lovely sunshine and warm. We were picked up at the hotel in the old town and got extremely surprised when we went onboard the boat - quite big, felt luxurious and very clean. We sat outside on large white faux leather sofas and they gave us welcome drinks and bits to snack on - all very good. We were lucky, only about 25 people on the whole big boat so we got first class service! On the way up to the Black Sea they served a fantastic lunch. The guide was very informativ and the boat stopped off at a small village on the way back, and more things to eat and drink! Lovely luxury cruising! Even though it said in the brochure that the return transfer to the hotel is not included - they actually brought us back - no charge!

We were very privileged indeed to have Çetin as our tour guide who’s very knowledgeable and deeply passionate of what he does. He covered many aspects of our walks beyond our expectations and kept us engaged all the way through! We were also impressed and humbled to be able to view some hidden treasures/sites through his excellent contacts following his many years of experience as a tour guide. We’d definitely highly recommend him and the company for such a memorable experience in Istanbul. Thank you once again! Helena and Liane

Great tour. Our guide was very good. The downside is that since we were on the 'boat tour' which anyone can go, it was kind of redundant having a guide for this. It was loud and almost impossible to hear our guide anyway. It was also difficult to find a spot on the rail to take pictures of the sights. However, overall, I am glad we did this as Pierre Loti Hill is probably not a place we would have gone on our own, and the water cruise was very relaxing and gives a different perspective of the city.

Delicious & fantastic way to view the cit with a great guide

We had a highly enjoyable and delicious tour of the Asian side of Istanbul, with our fantastic guide Cetin (an ex-chef!). The food we sampled was both local and full of flavors, and we really appreciated the range of flavors and tastes we were able to sample. Not only did we learn about the food we did try, but also a bit about other foods in other parts of the city that we should go back to try, and we got a nice list of great restaurants to try. I would definitely return for this again!

The trip was fun ,but inaccurate as it does not actually

The trip was fun ,but inaccurate as it does not actually go to the Black Sea, but to the last bridge which was disappointing.The guide said the boat could not go into the BS, but this may not be true,maybe they got lazy,if they cannot enter the BS the this should be clearly stated.
