What people are saying about Istanbul

Hagia Sofia is like a mother of Istanbul

Surprisingly that the tours start sharp and no delay is foreseen- big respect to organization in one of the chaotic and super haptic city!!! Our guide Adim (Adam for international tourists) was very young, but knowledgeable and very enthusiastic young man. Deep knowledge with interesting, sometimes funny inputs made our tours unforgettable. We also had a chance to meet the local star - cat named Gli Definitely recommend to all who want to learn facts in 1h life tour and not only appreciate the beauty of the museum on several centuries and religions.

Fast and convenient access to the Cistern and detailed guided tour

The meeting point is very clear then a quick visit to the Basilica Cistern. The guided tour was at 3 different points inside the cistern and the guide was detailed and informative, the tour took about 30 min then we were left on our own to explore further or leave. The cistern is not too large so spent about 20 mins walking around and taking some photos. This ticket definitely saves time as there was a decent line for the general admission tickets.

Our guide was very knowledgeable, personable, and beyond expectations!

Had never used Get Your Guide before and found it on a Google search when arrived in Istanbul. The guide was found exactly where indicated in our emailed information, he had answered the phone number provided when we had a question before the tour, he led the tour at a leisurely pace on a very hot day and provided more useful information on the sights than I could have ever imagined. He was the best guide I have ever had on an excursion!

Spoilt by unnecessary and irrelevant photo corner.

It was great to skip the line. Well organised and easy to book on my phone. Our guide was very good. The Basilica was amazing but the atmosphere was seriously degraded by the unnecessary tacky area where tourists could dress up in costume for photographs. Slinging that outside would improve the experience by a mile.

Fantastic guide, great insights into life within the palace walls

Best tour we've had. Easy access. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide who has personally researched the records of the palace and the various sultans. Gave us an understanding of how the various levels of the people and the sultans lived their day to day lives. Unfortunately no flying carpets
