The experience was lovely, especially since we were visiting Istanbul for the first time. Our tour guide, Emre Onal, was incredible and fun to be with. He took us to Haga Sofia, the Blue Mosque, the Sultan Bazar Carpet wholesale shop, the highest point of Asia in Bursa side to see the panoramic view of Istanbul, the leather place and more. We felt welcome, well informed and got all the fun we deserve during this trip.
We highly recommend having Emre be your tour guide and the offerings of his tour packages, as for us, we will definitely visit again and have him take us around.

I can’t think of anything that hasn’t been said about Emre!
What a wonderful human being! We spent the whole day with Emre going around old town Istanbul. He presented us with every little detail about the history of the places and told us stories. Emre was funny and made us laugh alot. Thankyou for a fun filled day and we hope to see you soon Emre!

This tour will give you just the main landmark highlights in Istanbul, but if you have enough time in the city better to do the landmark visits on your own.
Cost of the tour is 70 euros with lunch included, lunch was not worth 5 euros.
If you do it by your own maximum you will spend 30 usd with a good lunch
I won’t recommend to take this tour at all, better you explore the city by yourself and avoid being scammed by this agency. The tour sucks. Nothing against the tourist guide he was nice and very helpful.

Dear Guest ; As I already sended to your Personal E mail ; Instead of the tour company that you participated to their Disappointed istanbul Tour You did sended this review wrongly to our pages. We double checked our records for all the given tours with the tour categorie '' Highlights of Istanbul '' but this period of the year we did not receieved any booking via TRIPADVISOR nor VIATOR . Please try to cancel this negativ review from our page which is very deaply touching us ! taking our rang down with no reason. If you still want to keep it PLEASE PROVE and VERIFY US your reservation or booking number ! After all this years giving all my best service to have a good name & rang at tripadvisor I would'nt accept to loose rang from a Fake Revıew. EMRE ONAL Owner ( istanbul Sightseeing Tours )
