Surprisingly good. They give you a tour of both the Western and Asian parts, when you get on the bus they supply you with headphones, a bottle of sgua and a snack. The tour and the “audio guide” are perfectly synchronized. It is better than I expected

Excellent trip. Would strongly advise doing this on day one. Gives you an idea of the city and where the sites are in relation to each other. Stops off at the must see attractions. Buses run every hour.

Very nice bus tour of Istanbul. We got a small package with a drink, pastries and headphones. We did the tour on the first day and got a great overview of the city.

Despite the heavy traffic in Istanbul the trip went well...have seen a lot and enjoyed the explanations.

Cool ride! Good thing for seeing and sightseeing all the sights. Easy and uncomplicated.
