Dear travelers be careful when you book a tour for trips that they offer you in some travel agency. As it is tour with the private boat trough the Bosporus or Princes island. If they tell that you are going on a tour with private boat and when you get there they put you in public transport (ferry) as the... More

Was picked up at 8:30 am, no problems. Met with other buses, drivers and quides and would have waited at least 30 minutes in the bus while they smoked and drank coffee and tea, then moved to correct bus. Palace tour fine, fly over cable fine. Then off to the bridge and up to the Asian Hill, 40 minutes spent... More

We booked this cruise based on the recommendations from our hotel. The main reason we booked this over over companies was the swim in the black sea stated on their pamphlets. However there was no swim stop. The only stopover was in Anadolu, when we asked the tour guide what there was to do there. She stated 'to buy souvenirs'... More

Started our stay with a morning walking tour with guide Seda to Hiippdrome, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Grand Bazaar. Just the two of us and Seda which made it even better. Seda was an excellent guide with a wealth of knowledge and always happy to accommodate our needs. She was friendly and easy to talk to and made this... More

We took two tours and both of them were disappointing. Their guides are drab and dull, and they show no interest what so ever in people. Their trips are so tightly packaged that you barely get to touch the place and then you have to get a move on. The food on offer is the same every day and is... More

The morning was great - the boat ride was fun and we saw a lot of interesting buildings on both the European and Asian sides. The visit to Peirre Loti Hill was enjoyable as well. After that it all went downhill. There was a forced "shopping" option at a leather store just outside the old city which wasted almost 45... More

I booked the "full day city tour with lunch and entrance fee included". 1. The Cruise is very nice but you can go by yourself without wasting one hour in a bus collecting other victims before go to the harbour. 2.The pierre lot hill is a 200% waste of time and the cable car is a joke. A bad one.... More
