A tour very well organised. Compact, but seeing more of the unusual sites of Istanbul. Chora Church is a must-see for its wonderful mosaics. Tour was done, despite myself being the only tourist. The tour guide extremely knowledgeable and courteous.

It is the perfect tour for an afternoon flight, in few hours you have the change to visit Chora Church with amazing mosaics from Bizantin period it seems to be in Italy, have a boat ride on the river and see Istanbul from the top. I had a tour with Tuba that give me a lot of information also about Turkey history. As Italian I was only pleased to know much more about the city and the Country from a local. Thanks Tuba :

Excellent tour! Songul was very knowledgeable and an excellent storyteller. Logistics of the trip were perfect, with no time spent waiting between activities. We only had a few hours to spend in Istanbul but had a rich experience and good taste of the city's history.
