Had to run around Istanbul to join the group because the pick up place provided was different from the actual one. Lots of wasted time between activities. Bosporus cruise was excruciatingly boring

Mosques not open on Friday, they take you to two stores to buy things - one of which is not suitable for vegans as it sells leather and they do not mention it. The rest, little history and doesn’t add value. Would not recommend it

Great tour. I would recommend, The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The only part I hate is when they send you to the stores it is a tourist trap . Prices are extremely high. Don’t fall it and buy it on the tours you can get it cheap elsewhere.
