Our small group of 2 people was led by a truly professional tour guide. His sense of humor was phenomenal. As a fellow tour guide and owner of a small tour company, I value his sense of humor among the tour guides the most. He delivered 200%. Professional, carrying, funny and just a simply super nice human being, created memories of a lifetime for us. Istanbul was on my radar for a very long time and now my heart is full of gratefulness and happiness!

I would definitely recommend this tour. They collected us from our hotel in a high quality minibus to start our day. Our guide was informative and fun. You get a lot for your money - several sights around the city, both on the European side and the Asian side. Your cruise ticket, lunch and entry to the Dolmabahce Palace are all included. Highly recommended as a great way to get a flavour of this eclectic city.

Tour guide was extremely professional and had an excellent grasp of history and the historical
significance of the Bosporus and the city of Istanbul as well as the rise and fall of the Ottoman
Empire. For the importance of this part of the world, I highly recommend this tour.

Glad we took this tour. Our guide Mr Furkan picked us up on time. He was really good and knowledgeable in giving us the history of the places that we visited and then some. Since it's just the two of us for this group it's more like a private tour. We enjoyed our day immensely.

Guide was pleasant. This tour takes you all over the city on both Europe and Asian sides. Saw a lot of Istanbul in one day. Cruise was relaxing. Highly recommend this. Dolmabahche is worth visiting.
