Great guide ever!

The guide was really fantastic!! He explained so much about Topkapi, shared the highlights & interesting stories! He was also funny in a stand-up comedian way and he stayed very kind & helpful (also towards other tourists) He represents Istanbul with pride, dignity & love. His name means “beloved son” (we had the tour on 4 Sept ‘21 at 12:00 hrs) Please send him our kind regards.

Blue Mosque & Hagia Sophia Private Tour - Our Wonderful Tour Guide Mr Ugur
Odyssey698576
, Oct 2019
We were a group of 8 adults. The Blue Mosque & Hagia Sophia were a lifetime experience for each one of us. The entire complex and the individual monuments are maintained immaculately. Our tour began with the Hippodrome outside the great Mosque. Our Tour Guide, Mr Ugur, recounted its history in a manner that brought the past vividly alive before our eyes. We were treated to an introduction to the history and cultural significance of the Blue Mosque before we entered. We were overwhelmed by its splendid aesthetics and majesty and the calm inside despite the steady stream of visitors. In Hagiya Sophia, we were taken through the layered history of the edifice as well as the civil engineering challenges that its designers had to deal with. It is impossible to see enough of the Blue Mosque and Hagiya Sophia in less than a couple of visits.

Solid Tour

Guide did a fine job of highlighting the key aspects of each of the sections of the palace grounds so one could go explore more in depth after the guided portion of the tour. One can easily spend 2-3 hours walking the palace grounds.

Wir waren zeitig dort,die Schlange war noch kurz. Zu 11:00Uhr hatten wir unseren Termin, es wurde aber 11:30 Uhr. Die kurz Führung durch Melody war allerdings wirklich gut!

Prendre la Istanbul carte des musées nous aurait coûté moins cher (dès qu'on fait environ 3 musées) et nous aurait servi de coupe-file partout.
