Great experience for our first full day in Istanbul. Our guide Chana made it one of the best parts of our trip. We ended up walking most of it since it was all so close in proximity. You could do this all on your own but the background and history would be missed.

Everything was so beautiful, the mosques, the hippodrome even the grand bazaar had some nice stores but the workers do haggle you a lot which is expected. The tour guide that we had explained everything to our group and he really knew what he was talking about, he had a lot of interesting facts and information. I won’t forget this experience

Excellent tour and lots of information. We did the 4 hour tour and it was exactly what we wanted. Highly recommend. Our tour guide spoke excellent English and kept a great pace. After the tour was over we were able to explore on our own having learned so much about the area.

This tour was an excellent and efficient way to immerse yourself in the history of Istanbul. Our tour guide - Selcuk Ersan - was thorough yet lighthearted (like many of the other people you will meet in Istanbul). He had extensive knowledge for each of the sites and was able to answer any of the questions we had for him. Highly recommend.
