What people are saying about Istanbul

A pilgrimage every Australian should take if they have the opportunity

Visiting Gallipoli has long been something that I have wanted to do to pay homage to our Anzacs and to the Turkish soldiers who fought in this terrible battle. It was long day trip from Istanbul but our guide Burak (whom we met at Gallipoli) was a knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and passionate guide who added so much to the trip. Thank you.

Well organised trip guided by the true fan of the war history

The trip totally worth the money paid for it. The overall journey was well organised, there were no unnecessary stops. We were picked up from the hotel in time. The guide (Burak) was really great and his explanations were quite informative. I would definitely recommend the excursion to any person interested in the World War I history. At least I got all the answers I had in my mind answered. Our main driver during the trip (Josh) was great and helpful guy as well. My only complaint concerns our driver on the way back to Istanbul (Ali) who was often using his mobile phone during the driving, which is not safe in my opinion.

A very lovely tour by a truly knowledgeable and pleasant guide!

The tour was very well conducted by Hilal. She proved to be a very experienced guide who could help the group navigate the crowds of tourists at the various sites. She knew when to give members some time to wander around to admire the places and when to gather everyone to elaborate more on the historical backgrounds. I could sense that everyone felt relaxed and comfortable with Hilal and that in turn contributed to a wonderful sense of camaraderie within the group. I would certainly go through this tour again when I revisit Istanbul provided it is conducted by Hilal. Thank you and hope to see you again, Hilal! The "skip-the-queue" arrangement that is provided with this tour is an absolute God-send in terms of avoiding the snaking long queues!

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!

Excellent and our guide, Burak, was exceptional; thanks!

Long day but very well worth it. Once we arrived to the peninsular we had a enjoyable lunch then we were split off to our Gallipoli tour withour guide. Burak (freelancer guide) was execptional - his knowledge and information to share was well understood. The aspect to consider this event from the Turkish perspective was really well done, yet he had compassion for both sides and shared the stories of both to really explain this historical event. No bad news here all good and I can only say thankyou to "Crowded House Tours" for a fantastic experience and day.
