I visited Istanbul in February with a group a friends. While it’s not the busiest period, the number of visitors is still considerably large.
One of our smartest decisions was to book a group tour with Ayse. She’s a great communicator, very knowledgeable and can expertly lead a group through crowds of tourists while making sure we stick to schedule. She is obviously very good at what she does and enjoys answering any questions about her city’s history.
We avoided the lines, saw some incredible architecture, learned quite a lot in the span of a few hours.

Two thumbs up!
Mar 2020
I only spent one full day in Istambul (by the way, should have definitely stayed more days, it's an amazing city), so I wanted a tour that would give me a general idea of the city, as well as main history and access to top historic sites, this turned out to be the perfect tour!

We were a group of three and our tour guide was Ayse. She was so nice, knowledgeable and her English fantastic. Lunch was delicious and we enjoyed fast-track access to every site, which helped to make the best of our time.

If I travel back to Turkey, I will definitely book more tours with them.

Rip Off Beware of Charges and Irresponsible Guide
Mar 2020
I have been on a walking tours in Italy & they were excellent but this was a rip off. On top of the fee you will be stung for another £30 + each (exchange rate dependent) on top of a hefty near £60 each for attraction entrance fees. What company sells a tour to see the attractions in Istanbul but doesn't include the entrance fees. Blatant upping margins as the guide uses a group pass & you never see what they are being charged for entrance against what you pay as this extra charge. Further our guide asked for this money in a very busy place attracting every beggar within 100 meters. The distance walked is between 8 & 10 miles & there few places to sit down & catch your breath plus no bluetooth sets so you need to listen very carefully which is impossible in some of the busier places. We were in a group of 10 & were overwhelmed by a large family who dictated the day. The guide marched across busy roads rarely using crossings. Two of the party fell whilst she was way ahead. It was dangerous & she appeared to being totally unaware. She lacked any duty of care evidenced when one of the party was intimidated by a taxi driver trying to cross the road. Lunch was nice but she talked incessantly about herself across people stopping any conversations between us, we moved to another table just to get away from the chatter. We finished the tour 20 minutes away from where we started because she wanted to show us her favourite kebab shop, we had to find our own way back. Ripped off & angry

Dear bygstad1, Thank you for sharing your experience with our tour, we are so sad to hear that we couldn't please you. We have been receiving reviews here on tripadvisor since 2009 and one can't see a single review saying we rip people off, we have about 1.600 reviews and almost all of them are excellent rated and we have never been accused of ripping off people, we really can't accept such an unfair accusation, let me explain why!! Firstly, you complain about the entrance fees being paid extra, but this information is clearly stated in the tour description a few times even we clearly publish the total amount that you will be paying for the entrance fees in advance and you booked this tour by knowing all the details, moreover we informed you directly about it in advance and you said you already knew it and now how come you complain about it and accuse us of ripping you off by charging you extra for the entrance fees?? If you wouldn't be happy paying the entrance fees as extra then why you chose this tour?? We find your accusions intentional. This is not fair, it shouldn't be that easy to do harm to the peoples' businesses unjustly especially during the Covid-19 while people are having really hard times in business especially in tourism. Also the entrance fee amounts are clearly seen at the entrance of the museums and your guide showed you how much it was, of course you don't see how much the agencys' margin is on tickets all around the world, agencies in Turkey have a very little discount on prepaid tickets if purchased in bulk in advance but if you asked us we could tell you what the margin was. Secondly you complained about your guide Ozlem too much, Ozlem is one of our top local guide and she has been doing our tours since 2010 and she has received hundreds of excellent reviews by our past clients. You also compalined ''our guide asked for this money in a very busy place attracting every beggar within 100 meters.'' Ozlem explained you about the payment in the morning you could pay then when there were no people also you could pay during the lunch break but you prefered to pay at the end. You say the large family dictated the day, yes because you never tried to interact with the guide while the other family asked many questions about what they wondered about the sightseeings and the Turkish culture. Ozlem says she tried to interact with you but you always seemed disinterested. You say two of the party fell, Ozlem helped them asked if they needed any help but you didn't even ask how they were as being the participant in the same small tour group. Fortunately that was a small accident. Lastly we understand that you were not happy with the tour guide and the tour but we definitely can't accept being accused of ripping people off, this is unacceptable! Future travelers can be sure that we have always been conducting our tours with great enthusiasm and we will always be doing so. Happy Travels Daily Istanbul Tours Team

Istanbul
Aug 2019
We found Istanbul and Turkey for that matter a beautiful country with warm and welcoming people as well as delicious food, and amazing places to visit, with so much history. I would have never picked Turkey to be honest with you, luckily my daughter did and I just fell in love with it., and plan on going back later this year.

A great way to see Istanbul
Mar 2020
I think it's the guide that makes the tour and in our case we couldn't have been luckier to spend our day with Ozlem. Not only was she really friendly and welcoming, she was also very knowledgeable about all of the places we visited and is clearly passionate about her work.

We only had one full day in Istanbul and this tour is perfect to get an introduction to the history and background of the city. It covers all of the must see places in the old city and also includes a great lunch at a beautiful rooftop restaurant with panoramic views.

I wouldn't hesitate to book this tour, we had a great time!

The tour was great as we were lucky to have Ozgur our tour guide whom could tell us details abt places we visited today. Beside, Ozgur has a good knowledge abt his country which is important for us to know also as we are in Turkey. Will plan to visit Turkey again, Insha Allah

What a great day! Our guide Ayshe was a master of logistics. Our small group skipped lines and got into all our stops easily allowing for more time to explore.
Ayshe is a native of Istanbul and has the information and history down. So enjoyable. Great lunch too. We would never have learned so much without this tour.
Thanks for a super day!
