The Dolmabahce Palace was really amazing. I would highly recommend for you to visit this palace. The Bosphorus cruise was nice, Im sure it would have been better if it wasnt that cold outside. Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and kind.. we enjoyed this day tour.

The tour was a great experience. The guide, Aslan, was very knowledgeable and spoke very clearly keeping the whole group interested and engaged.

We kept very good time, spending appropriate amounts of time at each stop accompanied by clear and engaging explanations of each site.

Highly recommended

We were very lucky to have Burak as our guide, he gave us a very good history lesson and he was answering kindly all our questions. If you visit Dolmabahce without a guide, you are loosing all the beauty of the palace. I highly recommend this trip. PS. Transfer back to the hotel is not included
