What people are saying about Istanbul

Although a bit expensive, I enjoyed the 3 hours of the tour

The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. He guided us through the palace, explaining major details and even interesting side stories related with the palace. He did not seem to rush us and took the time to explain what we should visit and answer any questions the group had. If you want to know more about the palace and its history, I recommend this tour. Although a bit expensive, I believe it is about right in terms of price/quality, as you would be paying around 10£ per hour + tickets. You also have the perk of skipping any queue (in our case there was none because we started early.

Kadir is a patience and knowledgeable guide.

Kadir Kucekeren was absolutely fantastic. He is very knowledgeable and we saved lots of time enjoying Istanbul with him. He knows all the secrets to truly enjoy the city in a safe and efficient manner. He personalized our trip to fit our cultural interests - like Süleymaniye Mosque. He is very caring of his guests; he helped my mother up and down the old city steps. He is a true gentleman and I will always be grateful to him for his patience and understanding.

Well structured tour with a very knowledgeable Guide.

The Company representative was at the meeting point as advised and the tour tour started promptly. Guide/tourist ratio was good. We got through the gate with relative ease and the pace of the tour was really measured. The Guide took time to explain every key aspect of the history of the place and threw in humour at appropriate times. The tour ended promptly and we were allowed to stay in there and do things at our own pace. Highly recommended.

Honest presentation, for tourists but respecting the spiritual aspect

Of course this was NOT a religious ceremony. The balance between spirituality (of the services and musicians) and spectacle (for us tourists) was well done. The space is very nice and well adapted for this kind of presentation. The exposition about the sufism and Rumi is interesting. It's possible to have a tea in the entry-zone. It is not possible to take photos of the presentation, even without flash.

Well worthwhile. Efficiently organised and intelligent and informative

We were glad we booked this tour. Very efficiently run by the guide. He was easy to find, we left on time and his commentary throughout was intelligent and informative and with a touch of warm humour. My only complaint is that I would have liked it to be longer.
