Perfect Tour

On the first day we arrived in the afternoon and only did an Bosporus Boat tour to get a first impression of Istanbul. On the second day, we did the sightseeing tour in Istanbul and started at the Green House (Meeting Point) at 10 in the morning. The Meeting Point was really easy to find. During our day trip tour we didn´t have long queues and could easily enter all buildings we wanted to visit. So in 1 day we easily visited Hagia Sophia, Cisterna Basilica, Topkapi Palace, Sultan-Ahmed-Moschee and later on our own the Big Basar. Our tour guide (Mehmet Gürler) had a very good historic knowledge and told us a lot of interesting stories so all participants (young / old) were caught from this. Very good decision to book the Istanbul Welcome Card because we saw in a very short time all the highlights of the city!

The tour with Gamze to Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and Cisterns Basilica was great! She is very knowledgeable and gave us an amazing insight into Turkish culture and history. We used public transport more than expected, we strongly recommend a pass with Istanbulkart included.

Sn unforgettable tour

We did a full day tour to Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern and Topkapi Palace. The tour was very pleasant and at no point boring or exhausting. We can especially thank our guide Mehmed, who on the one hand took very good care of us and on the other hand told a lot of interesting information about the sights. His sympathetic and upbeat manner made the tour a real experience. Thank you very much for this experience.
