“Birthday Treat”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Istanbul is certainly very very busy but it still was very impressive, from the historical old city to the buzzing district of Istikal, and the amazing waterfront location .

“Wonderful”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

I'm pretty sure everyone who visits Istanbul will spend at least a day in this area. Topkapi, Ayasofya, Blue Mosque, Bascillica Cistern-- all great sites to see at Istanbul.

“So much to see and do.”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

The Museum pass was a must if you intend to spend a few days. Lots of queuing avoided. Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque all spectacular.

“Observe great history”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Istanbul is a unique city in the world, have parts in Asia and Europe. Although the whole city is beautiful and in many ways resembles other large European cities, but the visitors get really impressed when they walk through the old historic part of the city. I visited the city twice in last 5 years, each time enjoyed being in the historic part of the city. The magnificient buildings,parks, remains of the historic buildings , streets and there is lot more to enjoy and look back in to the history.
