If you want to see pretty much everything in Istanbul in just one day, this is the tour for you. It’s a bit tiring but really rewarding. In rainy weather, like on our tour, it can get a bit hectic. Our guide, Mehmet, was excellent in every way, friendly and extremely smart! Unforgettable experience!
