I had a few hours to kill in Istanbul so I booked this tour online, I was collected from my hotel in a really nice car and the driver spoke good english fortunatley I was not far from the area we were going! There was about 12 people on the tour and the guide Murat was brillant he spoke so cleary and had so much knowledge about Hagia Sophia and the Topkapi Palace. Soaked in history this tour has made me decide to book a few days to istanbul with friends and ill be sure to use this site to book more tours.
