Outstanding Experience, strongly suggested! Our guide "Matt" was very friendly and fond of all the details regarding the magnificent architectural and historical marvels of Istanbul. He picked me and my partner from the "Swissôtel The Bosphorus Istanbul" on a sunny 25 degrees October morning at 08:30am in the lobby. Due to COVID19 the group was very small, 3 people. The absence of tourists had a very positive impact on our daily schedule: We had the 15th century Topkapi Palace with its Ottoman treasures all for ourselves gently walking in the sun across the magnificent park with stunning panoramas of the Bosphorus. We then visited the secular 537AD worldwide known Hagia Sophia, the Sultan Ahmet Türbesi graves, the colourful Hand-painted blue tiles of the 15th century Blue Mosque and The Hippodrome of Constantinople with its columns. Lunch at a cozy local restaurant and then shopping at Bazar. All at a walking pace with no rush and time to feel the holiness and history of these sites.
The Selimiye mosque and complex was the best, biggest and most beautiful one that I’ve visited so far anywhere in the world. Also The Health Museum of the Sultan Bayezid II was absolutley fascinating, as it unearths many roots of today’s modern medical and homeopathic practices.
Guide Emrah was great! Extremely kind and pleasant, he explained in detail every landmark in Istanbul, even on the way to these landmarks he explained some of the attractions of Istanbul, which are important to us tourists. For every recommendation!
A gem of a tour! From the start a first class service with excellent communication and consideration - The day was fascinating and extremely memorable - thoroughly enjoyed every minute - Thank you
Mehmet was an amazing guide, he took to all of the top tourists area. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Turkey. He even took me pictures, and was very friendly.
