    Our tour guide was nice and very knowledgeable and took us to all the sites we wanted to see. We had a fun and relaxing time. We would highly recommend this travel group. We also took an evening boat cruise and during the time between the two tours the trip organizer personally showed us around a few more sites and got us to the boat and made sure we were properly taken care of. The company went above and beyond putting their customers first and making us feel welcome in their beautiful city. Thank you for an amazing time!

    Istanbul was more than what we anticipated. We could not have had a better guide than Unal Aydin, His historical knowledge of the city and historical locals visited was extraordinary and we learned so much from him. Visiting the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sofia, the Grand Bazaar Market, and Topkapi palace was a highlight for us. However, we also enjoyed the walk and the discussions regarding the Hypodrome. We visited a true Turkish rug maker and watched her weave. My daughter even got a taste of the difficulty of such artistry. Overall, we highly recommend this tour for all ages.
