Salih, my tour guide, was absolutely fantastic and full of knowledge. He was very understanding with my needing to reschedule and immediately offered an alternate time to accommodate. His English is impeccable and his knowledge and understanding of his city of Istanbul is vast. I'm so grateful I took his tour as we got to be around the wonderful locals and take a break and get out of the touristy, yet history rich neighborhoods of Istanbul. He is full of great tips on what to do to get the most out of the city. I'm very happy I took his tour and would take again.
Everything was great until the point when the bus broke down and we were waiting for 3+hrs to get a replacement. When we finally got one they dropped us one stop before the end of the trip for the day. It was late and cold and we had to walk.
I always find the hop-on hop-off a great way to get to know a city. Unfortunately there was a lot of repetitive music and we almost missed one of the buses due to a change in their published times but overall it was good.
I had a 19-hour layover in Istanbul and decided not to spend the time at the airport. I spent the day touring the city, walking approximately 9 miles. Incredible experience.
There were only 3 of us but it made for an excellent intimate setting and “John Lennon/Wayne” () was brilliant and knew a lot about Istanbul’s 8500 year history. Loved it.
