  • Rating: 5 “Great experience”

    Reviewed by Orión from istanbul, Turkey on July 1st, 2014 I didn't expect to see so many great spots in one afternoon! I recommend to take the bus at the sunset time! U will enjoy great views while u are crossing the bridge to the Asian side, also I higly recommend to get down in almost all the stops the bus does if u want to have more deep experience of this tour!

    Reviewed by Geoffrey from Jumeirah 2, Dubai, UAE on May 28th, 2014 As opposed to other reviews, we had no problems with the frequency of buses. There always seemed to be a bus available. Staff were helpful


  • Rating: 4 “Hop-on/Hop-Off on the Top”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Essen, Germany on July 20th, 2014 Der "Big Bus" ist eine tolle Möglichkeit die Sehenswürdigkeiten auf der europäischen und asiatischen Seite von Istanbul kennenzulernen. An den Hauptstationen - Sultan Ahmet Platz und Hafen - waren Ansprechpartner vor Ort, die englisch und teilweise auch deutsch sprachen, gut organisiert.


  • Rating: 5 “Die beste Möglichkeit, Istanbul kennen zu lernen”

    Reviewed by Werner from Linz, Austria on June 8th, 2014 Wie immer war auch dieser gebuchte Dienst von Get YourGuide einwandfrei. Wir haben die Tickets für zwei Tage gelöst und würden dies jedem empfehlen. Am ersten Tag sind wir die Rote Linie gefahren und am zweiten Tag die Blaue. Auf diese Weise sind wir überall dort hingekommen, wo man als Besucher dieser tollen Stadt hinkommen sollte. Die Busse fahren alle 30 Minuten, daher kann man sich die Aufenthalte ganz locker so einteilen, dass damit je ein Tag pro Linie ausgefüllt ist.
