The Cistern Basilica is quite neat where Emre, the guide, is quite knowledgeable about the history and layout of the basilica. He is a very good guide. The Hagia Sofia us probably the best landmark in Istanbul. It’s a must see. Busa, who is our guide, is extremely knowledgeable about the history and stories behind the paintings, the covered Christian’s paintings, the rituals, and so on. I highly recommend this visit.

The coordinates for finding the guide os a helpful system in general, but didn't work properly for the Hagia Sophia tour, which started out stressfully - just to realise that we were all to queue up for over an hour. I was under the impression we would skip the long queues when booking through Get Your Guide. Frustrating experience. Inside,the mosque was under a profound restoration so all in all not a tour I would recommend presently. Topkapi was impressive and bigger than expected (bring a snack and water) and the Basilica Cistern nothing but a spectacular sight.

We had a tour from Cem at topkapi, from a really nice man (29 oct 15;00 at hagia sophia) we didn’t get the name of (he is going to study history soon) and Huyesin at the cistern. All of these men were amazing and sweet. We recommend them highly! The man at Hagia Sophia could talk for hours about history and was so nice about our country the Netherlands. We appreciate their time and energy spent into the tours!
