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.

Knowledgeable tour guide and smooth operation

My brother and I went in early February and the line was not too long. However, it felt great to skip the whole line and get into Hagia Sofia directly. If you walk in by yourself, you will simply think that it looks nice. However, with the tour guide's explanation, you can actually learn about the long history of Istanbul and it is truly fascinating. I highly recommend others to do this tour instead of just visiting the place since you get to learn so much. Also, the whole process was very smooth and the tour guide was very friendly!

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.

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.

Impressive place, tour guide not that good

I joined a guided tour in English around Ayasofia, and it's an incredible place with its different periods. The tour guide was just ok, he had good English but it felt like he was repeating a book by heart, a total lack of engagement with the group.
