Full day city tour with private tour guide and red carpet treatment with luxury minibus
Mohammad_A
, Jul 2019
It was excellent especially because of the tour guide. She was excellent and very nice individual. Not everyone is nice in turkey in fact they are very rude. Taxi driver are very rude and always bargain. Taxi drivers don’t use Meter most of the time. We have visited Blue Mosque, Topkapia palace, hagia sofia and spice bazar. The tour was excellent.

WRONGLY DESCRIBED TOUR
Joyce B
, May 2019
Tour is sold as red carpet treatment with luxury minibus. Wrong. Lovely tour guide arrived on time as arranged and started to set off. When I asked her where the luxury minibus was she said it was a Walking Tour. As my husband has walking difficulties I had purposely thought the tour would be ideal for us both to see the sights with a bit of comfort as well. I was not very happy and said to her that if transport could not be provided I wanted to cancel and get a refund. Eventually transport did arrive after over 30 minutes but by this time the magical tour was soured. The lady guide was lovely and she knew her history. This tour was very expensive and really should not be described as red carpet treatment with luxury minibus. If you had good walking legs you could actually do this tour yourself and save yourself a lot of money. Would I recommend it - sorry no way - just do it yourself in your own time.

Great day in Konstantinoupolis

The guide and the car picked us up on time. The guide was Unar, an English and Greek speaking guide. For us it was great to see that our guide spoke Greek. He was the best guide that we could have. He is the best guide to show Konstantinoupolis. The only false that we could mention in the food during our lunch. No good quality and they charged us more. Also the duration of the tour was less time than the one advertised. Overall great experience due to our guide....

This tour is really great. Our tour guide give an excellent service, she will answer everything without hesitation. All the tourist attraction are nearby its very easy for us to do walking and at the same we have more time to ask our tour guide regarding the tour and other attraction around Istanbul. It was an interesting tour, it gives us additional knowledge whats the Istanbul history all about.

I decided on spur of the moment to take a tour of Istanbul as it had been many years since I last did it. My guide was a young man called Eren who turned out to be extremely knowledgeable and friendly and knew everything about all the favorite and well known sites. It turned out to be a very enjoyable day and I would certainly recommend this company and guide. William H.

Awful. The worst guide I have ever...
Mary Ann F

Awful. The worst guide I have ever had in all my years of traveling. He was disheveled and not very clean. He was completely disengaged. He never gave us a single piece of information that couldn't be found on the placard next to the monument or artifact. We started at the Topkapi Palace where he correctly took us to the Jewel room first in ordered to avoid the lines. There is a rope line that one must follow. He allowed us 45 min for a 10-min tour. When we exited, he was nowhere to be found. Not at the meeting place that was arranged nor anywhere near it. when he came back 20 min later he was clearly coming from someplace out of the area. He kept asking us if we wanted him to go in with us--for example--at Hagia Sofia or did we want to go alone. Wherever we walked, he was always 10 paces ahead of us so there was no chance for us to browse in the shops for fear of losing him as we had no way of contacting him. I used Viator for the first time in Athens, and our guide was fantastic. I never had such high expectations, but I did expect some level of cleanliness, professionalism, knowledge and engagement. He had none of these qualities. Even though we had booked the car and guide for a full day, we told him to have the driver take us back to our hotel after lunch as we literally could not stand to spend one more minute with him. I have given him 1 star because I'm obliged to do that for your rating system to work, but he doesn't even deserve that.

One word sums it up........excellent. Luckily it was a Sunday and the crowds were light Eren had a real skill in avoiding queues etc. He had excellent knowledge and was very polite and helpful. He also assisted hugely with advice over purchases, I am in his debt for that. This tour was well worth the price, don't miss it!
