Very good experience, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. It's so much better to see the sites with a tour guide than going on your own. We stopped off for lunch which was ok before going to the grand bazaar. The only downside was when we visited a clothes shop and felt very pressured to by something.

Our tour guide Burak of Karavan ensured that every minute of this tour was worth it. He was extremely knowledgeable, personable and the ultimate professional. The amount of information shared by Burak while visiting the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi and the Hippodrome was extensive and he never tired of our (my) endless questions. The included lunch stop was very pleasant and offered a welcome break. I especially appreciated our tour guide's help in securing a delicious vegetable based meal for a vegan. A visit to the Grand Bazaar was just long enough and again we valued Burak's guidance on what to look out for at the world's largest bazaar. The highlight was definitely the Topkapi. A magical place where I wish I could spend a few more days. Fortunately Burak ensured that we experienced the highlights. And a last thank you to a very courteous driver and his very clean vehicle. He ensured we were picked up on time and took us back to hotel safely in air conditioned vehicle. I highly recommend this tour!

Had a one day walking trip of historical Istanbul. Our hotel was within walking distance of the Hippodrome so the tour was easy. Blue Mosque was a bit chaotic due to renovations and Friday ! All the big attractions are with one square km , even survived the Grand Bazaar

This tour is great value for money
The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly the city is beautiful with many historical sites to visit and l feel this is the best way to do it, you can walk all these (which is advisable as traffic is awful) but without the guide we wouldn’t have learned very much .
