We did not like this tour, as the itinerary was somewhat lacking. The Bosphorus cruise took up a majority of the tour time, but it was a ship ride across the coast, which is something that we could've done on our own. Our tour guide was not very talkative either, although he might have been drained from the same tour from the morning earlier (we were the afternoon ppl, two of us only!). The Istanbul Bazaar (not the Grand one) was interesting, but again we could have been on our own. Overall, I think the itinerary is something you can do on your own, but nice thing is that you get a ride from the ship. Definitely look for a similar tour that has the Palace and the Cistern, but you can skip this tour.
