My husband and I booked a last minute night food tour because we only had one night in Istanbul.

As noted previously, this tour company hires both excellent guides and poor ones. We unfortunately had one of the latter. This tour included visits to several of the Askenazic synagogues , the old Jewish quarter surrounding the Galata Tower, and the monument to the massacre...More
Serhat, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, friendly and honest. His English was superb and he really helped to bring alive some of the places we saw in the Old City. We were glad we paid a little extra for the private guide experience.
Loved visiting this old city. Beautiful sights to see and visit. Agia Sofia is a must see!! Beautiful! So many sights, not enough time. We spent 3 days. History of the city is fascinating. Bazaar is another place not to miss

For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining
restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
