My wife and I came to Istanbul on a cruise and unfortunately only had two days there. This tour was perfect for our needs and gave us a wonderful introduction to a great city. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. All in all we would certainly recommend this tour.

Prompt, knowledgable guide that spoke english well enough to understand all that was said. Enjoyed all the sights. We could have never come close to seing ll we did in 7 hours if we were on our own. And as a bonus, lunch was great. Bob and Jacki from Phila and Florida

Many thanks for an excellent day with a very informative tour guide who managed to get just ahead of all the crowds !! After being collected from our cruise ship we saw some amazing sites together with an enjoyable lunch.
We were very lucky as there were only six of us on our tour and we all got on well together.
This was our first Viator trip and will certainly use you again.
