Trip on the Bosphorus

The trip on the Bosphorus was fabulous and we enjoyed the Bebeleye palace. The spice bazaar was very rushed and we spent a lot of time on the coach. We went to the Asian side for the cruise and then back to. The European side for lunch and then back to the Asian side. It would be better if we ate on the Asian side and that would reduce the tie on the coach.

Best full day Bosphorus tour with lunch and an experienced local guide

We were three adults on this tour with another family of four; and it was very well organized. Our English speaking guide was the best. His knowledge and experience made the day trip itinerary work like clockwork. A driver and minivan provided was large and very comfortable. We would highly recommend this tour; and found the price to be good value!

We had fabulous time with Mr Emre! A great tourist guide! He’s a hands-on and very knowledgeable person. Ask him everything he would answer wisely. I would recommend everyone who is in Istanbul for a tour, please look for him. The mini bus was so comfy. The lunch was superb. Everything was perfect! What a great day we had today. 10/10!
