Everything was all right!

very nice guide, very competent

We were very satisfied with the tour. The price-performance ratio fitted very well. We were fetched punctually from the hotel and also brought back again. The tour guide was very friendly, designed for fun and technically top in form. If you want to see a lot of Istanbul, this tour is very recommendable. :)

Pickup was on time! But the actual tour was started much later. It took a long time for people to be divided into groups. The guided tour was conducted in two languages, German and English, so sometimes too fast and too short. It was not always possible to assign the explanations. The Bosporus trip was very nice. A visit to a leather factory wasn't on the agenda...the food was okay. Unfortunately we would have to wait for the tickets for Dolmabahce Palace... Therefore the guided tour in the rooms was carried out at high speed. On the Camlica hill everyone was left in front of the cafe. Nobody said that a couple of hundred meters higher there is a beautiful park with an even more beautiful view. The tour ended about 1 hour later than planned... Despite some "minus points" we will recommend the tour to others. You see a lot and are driven to the places you can't easily get to yourself. You probably wouldn't be able to see it all in one day on your own...

good

Great tour. We were the only Germans and had our own guide. The food was a disaster and could have been saved. Too cold, food boring and drinks too expensive. The prices the waiters charge don't agree with the card. But the rest was great!

Description

Discover Istanbul's famous Golden Horn, the arm of the Bosphorus and a natural harbour of the historical peninsula separating the old and the new parts of Istanbul where the first colonies settled during the the time of the Byzantines. It was the residential area for Byzantine Jews, Italian traders and also other non-muslim minorities.

Drive along the traces of history at Balat where you can view the Metal Church of St. Stephen the Bulgarian, the Jewish Hospital, also called Or-Ahayim and the Orthodox Patriarchate.

Furthermore you can see on the tour the 22 kms long Byzantine City Walls, the strongest fortification of the middle age.

Discover also the popular Spice Bazaar which will enchant you with the mystical smells of different aromas.

After the city tour, you will go on with the fascinating Bosphorus Cruise which seperates the two continents, Europe and Asia. Take photographs of marble palaces, ancient wooden villas of Ottoman architecture and also of modern residentials and luxurious apartments.

Another important sight which you will see from the boat is the Rumeli Fortress, an historical armament built by the Conqueror to control and protect the Bosphorus.

Then we will have a break at a Turkish restaurant.

After having a meal, we will visit the beautiful Dolmabahçe Palace, recent residence for Ottoman Sultans which served as the main administrative center of the Ottoman Empire. The palace has 285 rooms and 46 halls.

Finally your personal guide will take you to the Bosphorus Bridge. There you have the unique chance to step from one continent to another, from Europe to Asia.

On the Asian side, you can climb on the Çamlica Hill or the Yeditepe and enjoy a panoramic view of Istanbul and Bosphorus from one of the highest and most appealing place of the city.
