5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

We had a great full day tour of Istanbul with our guide Soner. He was punctual waiting for us right at the cruise terminal at the agreed upon time. Soner was very knowledgable about all the sites and it was wonderful getting to know him and the lovely couple who were on the tour with us. We saw some amazing sites and had a delicious lunch that was included. Soner went above and beyond -he even ran back to get a sweater that I left behind at the restaurant and took us to the unplanned stop at the spice market and Underground Cistern.

“Great shore excursion in Istanbul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

We could not ask for a better day! We were picked up right at the cruise terminal, and our guide was so knowledgable. It was great being In such a comfy vehicle, with only 2 others. The traffic was horrendous, but being in a car the driver managed to manouvre easily. We even managed ttags to an unplanned stop at the Cisterns which was so worthwhile.

“Excellent Istanbul tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

We had a lovely full day tour of Istanbul with our tour guide, Ali in April 2013. We were so impressed by his punctuality, extent and breadth of knowledge and how smoothly the tour went. The tour minibus was very clean and modern, and our driver was very professional. I would recommend this tour company without hesitation to anyone travellng to Istanbul for the first time, as it was an excellent way for us to see alot and learn much about the history and culture of Turkey in a short period of time. It was worth every Turkish lira ! Additionally their response to emails was very rapid; Soner was very accomodating as I made the tour arrangement on short notice.

“Can't Do Better Than Daily Istanbul Tours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

After much research, we decided to do our one day tour of Istanbul with Daily Istanbul Tours rather than the cruise ship tour. That was a smart decision.

We were greeted by the Tour company's owner, Soner, at the exit at the cruise pier. Soner is bright and fluent in multiple languages; in our case English. He gave us a lot of history as we headed to the Blue Mosque for the start of our tour. We visited the Blue Mosque, The Hagia Sophia,Hippodrome, Topkapi Palace, and The Grand Bazaar in addition to a great local lunch place whose name I can neither spell nor say but it was wonderful.

Soner started the Tour Company with 10 of his friends from the University and they will go out of their way to provide tours filled with history and valuable insights; far better than the standard cruise ship tours.

You can either follow the planned tour itinerary or alter the itinerary to fit your needs. We can't overstated what a terrific tour we enjoyed.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Company picked us up right at the cruise terminal for a one day tour of the major sites in Istanbul. Our guide was great, and we were able to see some really cool stuff with a minimum of effort, since we didn't have much time in Istanbul. Price was really good for what we got, and for once in my life I actually enjoyed the lunch place a tour company took me to.

I'd also recommend checking out the Spice Market if you have time.
