Head to the Blue Mosque to marvel at its six minarets and the thousands of Iznik tiles that cascade a sea of blue over the building’s interior. One of the finest examples of classical Ottoman architecture, the mosque was built at the bequest of Sultan Ahmet I who demanded a mosque to rival the grandeur of the Hagia Sophia.

    I think this was the perfect choice I could have done, yes one long day of walking lots & lots but you end up seeing all major sights in old Istanbul in one full day. The Tour Guide Gurkan was amazing with great knowledge about history places sights and great humour. A special thanks to him with out him this tour wouldn’t have been successful. I highly recommend this tour.

    Our guide Seçkin was excellent and made this tour exceptional. His knowledge of the area and of the places that we visited was amazing which made the tour even more interesting. The tour covers all of the main attractions in Istanbul, all within walking distance. Thoroughly enjoyable but exhausting. A must do tour for anybody visiting Istanbul.

    They did not appear at pickup point. Neither answered phone calls. There was a recording with a note for an emergency number to call which they never picked up. We arrived an hour early and waited up to 39 minutes after. No notification or response via app. Terrible experience. We have contacted for a refund. Never had issues prior using this app.

    The museum trip was excellent and highly recommend it others. Sevilay our trip guide was excellent as well; very knowledgeable and friendly..

    The tour girl was very good. She knew all the history. She asked all the questions and very sweet. And and she took us to a very good place for lunch. We all enjoy it.

    Tour guide, Sevilay was wonderful. She is direct and knowledgeable. She knew the best way to beat the crowds and lines! We did not plan for an all day tour, but it lasted 9-5. We are so happy to see so many places and the restaurant for lunch was excellent! I recommend leaving before the grand bazaar finale. The sales pitch is long and uncomfortable. We felt stuck and unsure how to politely excuse ourselves.

    Wow what an actioned packed day to cover all the major sites. Guide was knowledgeable but softly spoken so was hard to hear her when a big crowd was around. She did spend an extra hour with our tour to ensure we could make our way around the Grand Bazaar. Things to note - We thought we were being transferred via mini bus, as noted in the brochure, but it is a walking tour. Also wear appropriate attire to visit mosque’s. Guide didn’t explain the format at the beginning of the day, including process for lunch, which would have been helpful.

    Topkapi palace, Blue Mosque, basilica Sistern are all good to visit. Hagia Sophia was last. This is an 8 hours walking your. Too long. My feet were killing me. It was mentioned in the itinerary that an aircondiioned vehicle was included. Zero vehicle. Strictly walking tour for 8 hours. No lunch.

    This was a GREAT tour! We saw Istanbul from top to bottom and everything in between! We moved at a "good" pace, easy to cover the distance, learning as we went.
