Great time with what felt like old friends getting together to walk through history.

The tours were informative and allowed alone time to explore and photograph on our own. Mehmet & Ogulcan were very knowledgeable and Guldeniz was bubbly and brought a sense of freshness and excitement to the experience. It was unfortunate that the Basilica Cisterns were closed however the team found a suitable replacement to view and get a sense of what the water collection systems were like in that time period. I will definitely look up this tour again with my wife when I return and by that time Guldeniz will be leading the group.

This was perfect for a couple of days in Istanbul. You don't have to rush, because there's several different times you can go see the different sights, which is especially helpful if you fly in late or have an early departure. Really enjoyed the knowledgeable guides and being able to skip the long lines. I was traveling with my dad and this is perfect, because I didn't want him doing too much walking so it was great that we could split up the sights over two days.

Muy bien organizado, las personas que nos atendieron lo hicieron muy bien, las explicaciones en un inglés perfecto (teniendo en cuenta que los turcos con los que he coincidido hablan este idioma bastante mal) si, me gustó y estoy contento de haber comprado esta excursión.

O Bilhete Combo VIP é uma boa opção. Económica e evita as longas filas que se reúnem para visitar estes locais. Os Guias são facilmente identificáveis e sabem do que estão a falar e são simpáticos e prestáveis. Fiquei satisfeito e voltarei a usar os serviços da Viator.

Los guías son atentos, tienen mucha paciencia, te explican lo necesario. Tuvimos un problema de ubicación en una de las visitas, y una guía muy amable nos acompaño al punto de encuentro para que lo localizasemos
