I joined the Classic Tour on my first day in Istanbul and we first went to visit the Aja Sofia. It was a very rainy day and was very crowded inside the building. Our guide suggested to take pictures and come back to the meeting point in 10minutes but then he "disappeared" outside with the group without waiting for me!... More

This is a tourist area Beyoglu, Taksim & Gezi Park, rather than a tourist attraction. I found it unsettling to see large numbers of police gathered around 2 water cannon carrying guns and arms that fire gas cannisters, it looked like a dangerous place to be and the police looked like they were ready to attack with brute force rather...

This company receive a good reviews in trip advisor and I just don't understand why they hire this kind of guide. First, I waited for 1 1/2 hours in my hotel, 4 phone calls after, a lady come and fetch me to the hippodrome. The guide is of course Abdullah, my name is on the list of booked guest, he... More

This is the tour you need if you want to understand the different sites and the history of Istanbul. Yuke was a fantastic tour guide! We had left the hotel in the morning thinking we would discover the city on our own. Then on the Ring, we heard Yuke giving explanations to a group and asked to join them..... She... More

Our guide was lovely but I really did not like the mandatory stops at certain places in the bazaar particularly as it is not mentioned anywhere when you book the tour. The carpets and jewellery were gorgeous and but I was not in Istanbul to see them. I understand the city can be incredibly busy and it must be very... More

This is truly the way to start out your first full day in Instabul. We recommend the full day tour. We were picked up at our hotel promptly and headed a short ride to be greeted by our guide. Yuke was our guide and did a fabulous job detailing every one of the sites on the agenda. Extremely knowledgeable and... More

I took the whole day walking tour of the old city and was very pleased with everything. The guide was very knowlegable and added stories and legends that you would not read in the guide books The tour bus meant that we did not walk all the time and it was a very comfortable ride. Lunch and entrance fees to... More

Definitely use your feet to get the most out of Istanbul's unique and esoteric atmosphere, which changes with each block. The historic sights are wondrous, indeed. However, to get the feel of the neighborhoods, the excellent small eateries, tiny tea shops, ancient neighborhoods, varied and friendly people - - - just walk around. Up and down. Across the River.
