    Great tour. Our guide was very good. The downside is that since we were on the 'boat tour' which anyone can go, it was kind of redundant having a guide for this. It was loud and almost impossible to hear our guide anyway. It was also difficult to find a spot on the rail to take pictures of the sights. However, overall, I am glad we did this as Pierre Loti Hill is probably not a place we would have gone on our own, and the water cruise was very relaxing and gives a different perspective of the city.

    Amazing tour with an amazing guide!

    The tour was great - everything went smoothly and was enjoyable from the moment we were picked up at the hotel to the moment we were dropped off (we actually requested to be dropped off elsewhere from the hotel!) Our guide, Yasmin, had a wealth of knowledge and was a pleasure to be around. I thoroughly recommend this to anyone visiting Istanbul!

    All was very nice, guide picked me up from the hotel, then we went to boat trip for 1,5 hour, she was highlighting all historical buildings, told legends and explained all very clear. Once we finished with boat, we went to Pier Loti hill, had tea in beautiful historic cafe, then move down from hill by cable car, and they dropped me to my hotel. Very nice guide, good tour, good transportation.
