User's Reviews

24 Feb, 2020

This tour was exactly what we wanted for our 7+ hour layover at IST airport. Hakan was able to customize the tour so we could see the Hagia Sophia, Great Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Basilica Cistern, and Süleymaniye Mosque all within a couple of hours. This gave us a nice taste of what the city offers, and a desire to come back to tour with him again to get even more details! Communication was easy through WhatsApp, and the meeting place was perfect. The van was clean and modern and the driver was very good at avoiding as much traffic as possible. If you have the time I definitely recommend this tour!
