This was great value for money. The walking tour started at 9.00 and finished at 18.00. But it was never dull. Lunch was very good too. We had some stops at vendors - sweets, carpets - but these were interesting. And there was no hard sell. Our guide was excellent (O Ceylan). He knew his subject inside out and welcomed questions and comments from those on the tour. His English was first class. We learnt a lot about Istanbul and its history. Highly recommended.

The guide was the best! We spend whole day together with one other tourist. I really loved this experience and it was definitely worth the money.

Our guide, Oguzhan, was absolutely brilliant. The tour was long but very interesting, and guided us through the Greek, Roman and Ottoman era of the city. A jewel on the end - Topkapi palace is a must see when in Istanbul. By the end, I felt as not only I have roamed the landmarks, but also traveled through time.

Extensive knowledge, humor and a sprinkling of little known facts! Ozzi created a tour that brought historic monuments into context in the modern world. It was a cold and damp day, he was cognizant of that and switched the order of visits to bring us some relief from the cold! Lunch at &Tamara was fresh, tasty and very filling. Please try rhe fresh pomegranate juice- extra charge- but well worth it! We also met artists, craftsmen and had chia at a carpet retailer, who explained patterns, techniques and different materials. Ozzy was ever gracious- taking pictures for us- after a long day in front of the Blue Mosque( the real name escapes me at this time :) for a gorgeous nighttime shot.
