This 2-day tour to Istanbul was exactly what I needed to experience this famous city. Organization was amazing, and we felt very comfortable. The hotel was clean, in a central location, and our guide was an awesome guy! My personal favourite was Hagia Sofia. I mean, wow! It’s huge!! The bazaar was also something exciting and I purchased some nice souvenirs. My friends and I liked everything about this tour. I fell in love with the city, and I’m definitely going there again!!
Family of 4, and very pleased with the tour operator! Going to Istanbul with the kids was a bit tricky, but no! These people made everything smooth and easy. Istanbul is a super city for sightseeing, and that’s why we wanted to go there. On the first day we toured some major attractions, and learn many important information about the history of this beautiful city. The second day had no particular schedule, so our guide recommended to visit some places in the city centre. Every corner is picture-perfect, and the food is delicious!!
Group of 6 friends, first time in Istanbul. After few days at the beach, we decided to try something new, and this excursion was the best option for us! If you have some more days left, don’t miss this chance. The vibes of the city are insane, and especially at the Egyptian bazaar, we were impressed. On the second day went for shopping, and Istanbul in a heaven on earth for this. The guide made us feel comfortable, and gave us some good tips on where to go. Super cool excursion!
