Our tour through VIATOR with guide, Cicek Hekimgil, was a delight. We got to see all the mayor sights, and Cicek was very well informed and her English was excellent. We had lunch both days at her recommendation as well as dinner the night before. Couldn’t have been more satisfied.

Our guide,Kadir Kucukeren, arrived at our hotel right on time both days and gave us two very full days.
He was well prepared with a recommended order for the main building visits, along with a route and full history through each (particularly Topkapi Palace), all tailored to our questions and preferences. While we covered most of the principal sights the first day, when it came to the second we managed to wander off-piste to an extent and pick up some great insights into how the city had worked historically and how lives are still led, particularly around the Grand Bazaar. We finished with a boat tour along each side of part of the Bosphorus.
More expensive than some tours but flexible and informative and a great way to pack in as much as possible in two days in the company of a passionate, warm-hearted and humorous local.
