We spent 12 days and 11 nights in Turkey. In Istanbul, we were able to see the Church of St. Anthony of Padua & Patriarchal Church of St. George, city walls of Constantinople, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Hippodrome & Obelisks, Underground Cistern, Topkapi Palace, stroll around Taksim, take a cable car ride to Pierre Loti and cruise on the Bosphorous....

We did the "Best of Istanbul" day tour and it was really great. The tour guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable. There was just the four of us so we had lots of time to ask questions. The tour was a good mix of walking, bus, boat and train.

There are many companies that offer day tours in Istanbul and I was lucky to find this one.Not only the price was very reasonable but the selection of places to visit was better than the others . The best thing was that we had during the 2 days an excelent guide called Elif which not only explained the different palces... More

We had two nights in Istanbul after traveling to Iran. Our flight arrived at 7 am so we decided a long car ride to Gallipoli and Troy would be perfect. We decided on True Blue Tours after Rukiye made two suggestions that other companies did not. She recommended using two different local guides - one for Troy and one for... More

Eyup and his True Blue staff showed us an Istanbul/ Turkey that makes me want to go back for more. I felt so well taken cared of and learned so much about the beautiful city and all its history.

We decided to go to Istanbul at short notice last week. My wife had chosen True Blue as the reviews were good. We tried to book a full day tour of Istanbul on the company website but it did not allow us to complete it so we rang the company from UK. Aykut was very helpful on the phone and... More

Highly recommend True Blue Tours for your next visit to Turkey. Eyup did an excellent job planning my family visit. We had a group of 14, and another group of 4 who had separate itineraries and he managed to smoothly coordinate and anticipate all of our needs, including a day tour where both groups met to hit the bazaars and...

We (group of 4) had booked a tour of Kusadasi and Cappadocia through True blue tours- Yilmaz is a very helpful person and gives attention to the finer details that one has not thought of. We were planning to do a very hectic trip - arrive in Izmir at a li'l past midnight and spend the night at the airport,... More

There are probably 100's of tour operators in Istanbul. I selected True Blue as overall the ratings were good and their full day tour skipped the shopping and focused on the sites. What set them apart was how they handled a problem. My pickup was late arriving so I had the hotel call True Blue, initially they said they would... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
