Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This tour was excellent! Our guide, Hilal, took us exactly where we wanted to go, leading the way so we wouldn't get lost, staying with us the whole time from port back to port (we were on a cruise ship). She was very informative and knowledgeable about the history and culture of Istanbul, Turkey in general and all the sites we saw. She did the best at getting us into the sites quickly to see as much as possible in the short time we had (just one day). We would highly recommend this tour and our guide, Hilal.

    This was an amazing food tour with so much food and excellent company. Our tour guide Beyza was so knowledgeable about Istanbul, gave us lots of great tips and recommendations for our travels around the city and we had a great time! She really brought the group together and was a wonderful tour guide. I’m just sad I didn’t take more pictures!

    Prepare for a long day and about 13,000 steps walking. Tour starts at 0900 near the Hippodrome and concludes about 2000 being dropped back at your hotel.
    Our guide Yunus made the day very special for the 14 on the tour providing a great deal of background and history for each one of the sites visited. Had a great lunch at a rooftop terrace restaurant and culminated with a very special 2 hour cruise on the Bosphorous.
    Well done Bosphorous Tours (and Yunus) we will be telling our friends to book this tour.

    I would recommend Deniz to anyone. The service was great and very clear. He even sent me a small video of how to come out of the airport and find him. He responded very quickly to any question. The cars were spacious and clean. I will definitely use him again when i next return.

    We had a fantastic half day tour with Özcan. He was very knowledgeable, interesting, friendly, and best of all flexible and relaxed - we had two children 10 & 7, and we were able to plan our time to make it interesting and suitable to them. He helped us with plenty of other Istanbul tips and was obviously known and well-liked everywhere we went, meaning we had a great time! Thank you so much for the Introduction to Istanbul!

    It was a really great and educational trip.

    The lunch and service all day was fantastic.

    Only comment is that the free time allowed at the stops seemed a bit long, only a minor issue though.

    Our tour of Istanbul was nothing short of extraordinary. From the moment our knowledgeable guide greeted us, we were immersed in the captivating history and culture of this incredible city. We explored the iconic Hagia Sophia, marveled at the grandeur of the Blue Mosque, and delved into the opulent Topkapi Palace. Each site held its own unique charm and historical significance, and our guide's insights made the experience all the more enriching.

    We had a wonderful time on this dinner cruise. The food was great along with the awesome entertainment. Our host Adam was the BEST...We never had an empty glass! Only recommendation I have is that when you send out confirmations with a number to call or an email to send any questions/inquiries, then commit to answering them. I did not get a response to my email nor my phone call as I had a question as to where/which hotel to meet in the lobby for in the Levent area. Since no response, we went with our own transportation.
