A day around Sultanahmet

It was a good walking tour. It started on time, and my Tour guide was Erol. He is Very knowledgeable about the content of the tour and even if it was only me, he made sure that I will be provided with the best informations. Especially for the history around Istanbul, the Sultans and the historic mosque. We also went through the Grand Bazaars and the Egyptian spice market. It lasted like 3 hours but definitely worth it for 1st time visitors of Istanbul.

A huge thank you to Erol for the wonderful tour! We (American family of 4) had such a lovely time and saw everything we wanted to see including the major attractions/monuments. Erol knows so much about the history and culture here in Istanbul and answered all of our questions. One of our favorite parts was trying Turkish Delight and tea in the Spice Bazaar. Highly recommend to do this tour on your first day when you visit because you can get a good sense of the city and see where you might want to return to during the rest of your stay.

We had a great time with Erol. We covered a lot of Ottoman history in a relatively short amount of time. Would definitely recommend this tour for your 1st or 2nd day in Istanbul.

We had such a great experience on this tour. Our guide was Erol and he was so knowledgeable on everything we saw. We covered so much in about 3 hours and I got to see everything I wanted to. We will definitely be back on this tour or a similar one when we return to Istanbul.
