    The tour was incredible. I had only one the to visit the city and I chose to do that with a personal guide. He let me view all the best places of the city, telling with a lot of details the history behind. He also take care of me and saved me from usually tourists trap (chat to me also after the tour). I really happy to have chosen this tour. Thank a lot.
    My guide name is Rubilgunduz, so thank a lot to him professionally and friendship

    The Boat cruise was fine but the transfer from the hotel and the transfer back after the cruise was very disorganised. We ended up walking to our hotel as luckily was close enough but I can’t imagine what other people had to do.

    Excellent yacht tour of both Euro and Asian sides of Istanbul. Lots of good info, great hospitality, tasty and abundant snacks.

    Amazing day! If this is your first trip to Istanbul book this at the start of your trip that you can get to experience the city and see the places you would like to go back to. The variety of food was very educational and we learned so much about the culture. Walking the streets one wouldn't typically see when visiting as a tourist was a great bonus. Ali was an excellent guide! Would highly recommend this tour the food was delicious.

    This was an amazing trip I will remember for years. Loved Cappadocia. Viator did everything they said they would do in this description and great comms with the company throughout. All four transfers happened with precision almost to the minute. I have been to 60 countries and the hot air balloon was one of the coolest experiences of my life.

    Now the bad stuff. This itinerary is grueling. You are awake for nearly 48 hours straight with a couple naps in between. You ride around all day in a tiny bus with no legroom and have some pretty epic views but also have to endure some terrible tourist traps. Would I do Cappadocia again? 100% Would I travel with Viator again? 100%. Would I take this tour again? No. If you are seasoned traveler and prefer not to tour with small, crying children, this is not for you. Book your own flights to Cappadocia and tack on an extra day on each end because the balloon rides don’t happen every day. This will give you some wiggle room if it gets canceled. Don’t book the red or green tour. Hire a local guide and be sure to skip all of the tourist traps. Enjoy!!

    The tour was just what we needed with the short amount of time that we had in Istanbul. Yunus our tour guide did an excellent job and was very knowledgeable.

    The tour was amazing!!! Our guide Gizem was brilliant!! Very personable, friendly and knowledgeable. She gave us great information which was to the point at each spot. I would advise that you wear very comfortable shoes (alot of walking), sunglasses and a cap are a must in the summer and the ladies will need a scarf. It is a must do tour for all those visiting Istanbul for the first time. Enjoy!

    My Istanbul Layover Tour was absolutely superb thanks to Mevhibe - one of the most most friendly and knowledgeable tour guides I have ever had (and I have done quite of travel!}. Tired from a long overnight trip, she first steered me to a wonderful Turkish coffee shop to get my energy flowing, and from there, we never stopped, hitting all the 'expected' sites, but also quite a few 'off the beaten path' gems. Mevhibe was fantastic at navigating the crowds, the entry requirements and other logistics at the popular attractions, enabling me to take them all in a more positive way. Her knowledge of history and culture was particularly impressive. We had such a great connection that we shared a wonderful local lunch together, and at the end of the day, I felt like I'd made a new friend. I'd recommend this tour to anyone even thinking about a day in Istanbul.

    The whole tour from start to finish was fantastic. All bookings from tour guide to transport was very professional and on time.
    The service responded promptly to every question we had before and during our trip. Tour guide was considerate and informative and did not promote tipping. No hustling.

    We struck gold with Aykut! Not only was he an amazing tour guide, but an awesome human. He knew the city inside and outside. We saw sooo many sites in 3 days and learned so much. Istanbul was more than we imagined, but Aykut had a hand in that. We can't wait to come back again!

    I liked the organisation before coming on board. On arrival I was quickly brought to my seat but then the waiter had difficulty with checking if I was a customer with or without alcohol. A simple hot meal was served. The shows were good even though I seated far away and asked not to approach. I did take many nice pictures outside though.
