Good but fewer time than it's shows... The guide was great but the tour so so..
That's all I have to say

We were on a day trip from a cruise ship so with limited time we were exposed to a lot of valuable information about Turkey, the people, and culture. I found all of the sites so interesting and our tour host gave detailed information on the history of Istanbul and each of the sites. There was great value in this tour, but not enough time to really fully explore the sites and do them justice. It was just enough to get a quick overview and make you want to return and explore further. The mosques were incredible but for me the Sultans palace was the highlight. I'm not a shopper but the bazaar had everything and went on and on. I particularly liked the small size of the tour group which gave greater opportunity for interaction between the guests and host. The only recommendation I would make is for the host to carry some identifiable item, like a flag or sign, that could be lifted above the crowd to avoid losing participants as we walked through the most crowded areas.

My daughter and I took the Small Group Tour on our first day in Istanbul. It was a perfect way to begin our trip. Our guide, Mr Omer, was so gracious and so knowledgeable and led us through the key sites with calm efficiency. It was GREAT to be in a small group ( a total of 6). We could hear our guide, move quickly abs smoothly through crowds and ask lots of questions. So much better than a big group experience!
