What people are saying about Istanbul

Perfectly on time, comprehensive of the tops attractions of the Palace

I did not want to book a tour over 2 hours as I like to get info about what I am visiting but at the same time I like to have time for me to explore what I liked most during the explanations. I would suggest to add two options, one excluding the Harem and one including it. I paid for it but of course it was already clear to me that it was not included in the tour. Guide started the tour perfectly on time, he was friendly and provided clear explanations. I think the tour is a good balance for those that want to get tips on the attractions but do not want to join an half day tour.

Topkapi Palace: Guided Tour with Fast-Track Entry Reviewed by Federica, 23/04/2019

Very informative tour. Friendly, helpful your guide.

Nothing to criticise. Great tour, lovely guide. People on my group were late (people collected before my hotel). So I had to wait an hour before pick up, their communication was good. I wonder what you can do about that? It's not very fair when other people cause you to have much less time in these spectacular mosques. Guide did his best to get us in quickly.

Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque Small Group Tour Reviewed by Nicola, 22/04/2019

A guided tour definitely enhances your experience.

Our guide, Adil, was knowledgeable, courteous and experienced. I definitely recommend hiring a guide if you've never previously visited. Also reduces wait time for admission, especially during holy dates. The guide handed us a paper ticket for admission when we arrived. The guide communicated effectively via text before our appointment. You will be free to walk about Hagia Sophia after your your ends. There are restroom and concessions outside of the Hagia Sophia. There are opportunities to purchase souvenirs inside and outside the building. Prices are reasonable. Excellent experience. Excellent dollar value.

Hagia Sophia Tour with a Historian Reviewed by David, 22/04/2019

Good. We will revisit and use your service again.

Pluses - Very interesting routes. Staff was helpful and explained well. Boat trip was great. Minuses - Blue route comes one every hour and the last bus was at 16.00.

Ideal tour on your first night in Istanbul

We booked this tour on our first night in Istanbul. It was the best decision I made. Ayhan, our tour guide brought us to places where the local people go. The food samplers tasted delocious and it gave us a good impression of Turkish cuisine. Ayhan was also informative and helpful. He spoke English quite well. I highly recommend this tour and tour guide.
