I am so glad to have booked a tour with Tours Turkey. I was going to be in Istanbul for a few days in August and wanted to spend a day visiting the sights of the old part of town, so I picked the Istanbul Classics Small Group Tour. I found this tour last minute, but Tours Turkey was very prompt to respond to my multiple emails! My communication started with Ali, he was very prompt to respond, and very detailed in his emails which was helpful in my decision making in such short notice.
On the day of the tour I was met by Ali, the tour guide who had also helped me make the reservations. Out group was a total of 5 people and everyone showed up on time. Throughout the day, we visited Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern and we had a nice Turkish lunch in one of the nearby restaurants. Ali was very informed, and his English was perfect which made the tour extremely valuable. He was willing to answer all questions and he took his time the whole time, it was refreshing to be a part of a tour where I didn’t feel rushed. He tailored the tour according to our interests and needs. I enjoyed my day spent on this tour very much, I met some amazing new people and I enjoyed learning about the beautiful city of Istanbul from Ali.
My trip to Istanbul was a success, this city has a lot to offer from amazing architecture and beautiful scenery to warm people and delicious food.
