    I had an amazing one day layover in Istanbul on my way home from a vacation in France. Turkish Airlines makes these layovers easy to do. I booked a solo tour for the day and walked all around Istanbul’s old city. It was a great experience. All tickets to visit the Mosques /Cisterns / Palace were prepaid and we did not have to wait in line. I learned more about the history of the city than I ever would reading a tour book. Omar was a gracious host with a wealth of knowledge. He also helped me arrange a Turkish spa experience for later that same evening. I would definitely recommend booking a tour, especially if you are limited on time, to get the most out of your day.

    Ilker is an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable guide! He showed us not only the main attractions, but also hidden gems throughout Istanbul, and shared his knowledge on the history and culture of the city. The tour also included hands on learning experiences, such as seeing how silk is made and spinning a clay pot! The tour was well paced and covered a lot in one day! He was also very helpful in organizing additional activities after the tour, like a small sunset cruise. Highly recommend this tour as one of the first must do activities when you arrive to Istanbul!

    We would highly recommend this walking tour with Ozzy. He is an excellent tour guide. He is knowledgeable, informative, was very patient with our many-many queries and has good communications skills. We had a very enjoyable and a memorable day touring with him which included sightseeing iconic spots, trying our hand at knotting a Turkish carpet, a group lunch and we even picked up a few souvenirs along the way.

    Thank you Ozzy for a glimpse into the rich Turkish history and culture.

    Excellent tour. The yacht was beautiful and the crew provided a very friendly service with a selection of nuts, fruit, a bagel with cheese, water and tea. The guide was incredibly knowledgable and the sights and scenery stunning. Highly recommended.

    It was amazing value, we paid only 20 euros. The entertainment was very professional, there was unlimited non-alcoholic drinks, a 3 course meal and beautiful views of the Bosphorus at night. The staff, waiters etc were brilliant! We would have paid more if we went to a restaurant in Instanbul. We had a fantastic time. Very highly recommend.

    Great day that we spent. It was fantastic sunset. Sit on right hand side if you want the best sunset view or left hand side if you want city views up close. Great time. About two hours long. The trip was super helpful

    Gülşen is absolutely fantastic - she is so knowledgeable, patient and kind!!!
    We stayed by Haiga Sofia and she met us at the hotel. As this was our first day in the city, we relied on her completely to show us around and it was the best decision - the day was all about learning the history and we were in lines no more than a total of 5 minutes, as licensed guides get a separate line (something I didn’t know in advance but was very happy about when I saw the long lines). The tour was at our pace - we had an elderly person - but we got to see everything and learned so much! The best money I spent in the city - we got so much out of the day and spent it with the most wonderful person! Gülşen truly made us feel welcome in Istanbul and felt like family by the end of the day. Thank you!!!

    We've been up since a sparrows fart, but it's been worth it.

    Informative, detailed, interesting...but who would've thought Burak (aka Borat 🤣) could also easily be an adopted Aussie.

    Very funny, reminding us of our strange colloquialisms, Burak was also thorough and clever in his delivery of the history surrounding the tragedy of Gallipoli.

    Food was ok, driving by Josh outstanding and Burak has clearly done more banging than a dunny door in a cyclone.

    In case you're reading this Burak, here's a favourite of mine:

    'Fair dinkum, that bloke, he could give you the square root of a jam jar, and not know how to get the lid off!'

    You are a legend, thank you.

    I found this to be a good half day trip with mutliple sites of interest. The tour provider made it stressless by picking up and returning us to our hotel. The guides were informative but I would have enjoyed more historical information.
