They left us at the meeting point
Oct 2019
We arrived at the designated meeting point, which was a restaurant. It was incredibly crowded, with 3 different tours groups already there. One group had blue scarves, another had a sticker with '83' printed on it, and the other group was predominately Chinese with a Chinese speaking guide.
We reported at one of the guides, and then a second gentleman came out with his cellphone, and confirmed our surnames and the tour. We were told the tour would leave in 5-10 Minutes. I went to the bathroom while my sister waited outside with the other tourists. It was very hot, crowded and there was no place to sit in the sun. No announcements were made, no groups were called.
After about 30 minutes we realized no one has called us, so we phoned the local contact number. The guide told us that we never showed up! When we informed him that no, we did indeed announce ourselves at the restaurant, and that our tour was confirmed to us, he then changed his tune and said that we can join, but we had to take a taxi at our own cost to meet us at the Harbor. We then chose to cancel our booking.  I would love to tell you about the Cruise, but we didn't get to experience that due to poor management by the tour operator.

Main points of the review:
1. Meeting point is terribly overcrowded, no shade or seats,you must wait on a hot crowded pavement
2. Tours aren't announced or called - The group leaves without announcement
3. When you do get through to the local phone number, you will be told that you didn't report for the tour, even if you did.
4.  There are so many other good tours in Istanbul - Skip this one

Afternoon cruise
Sep 2019
The tourist guide's English accent was very hard to understand and he did not provide any interesting information during the cruise (which made it not worthy, just as if you take a non-guided/public cruise).

Good Value For Money
Jun 2019 • Couples
This tour was not one of the best I have been on but it was value for money. The tour guide was very informative and helpful. Unfortunately, the sound system on the bus was not the best so we missed out on a lot of the commentary. If it hadn't been for that I would have marked the tour higher
