    The tour was great! Saw lot’s of great sites. All the tour guides were packed with information. Everything was well planned out and easy to communicate with someone if I needed to. Hotel selections were awesome, great locations, easy check in process and good food. All the lunches were great but one (food was bland, and atmosphere was not the best) however, all the other eating places were delicious, great atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this tour if its your first round in turkey.

    A well planned trip. Everything went well right from pick up and drop. Never had to wait and was always on time. The hotel provided was excellent and food on board was good. They did provide vegetarian options too. I was a bit skeptical as tour altikum quoted a lesser price than others but service was excellent. I would strongly recommend them. Overall a good way to see Istanbul.

    Emre the guide and Faruk the driver were absolutely wonderful. Emre’s knowledge of Turkish history past and present was very informative. The attention to detail placed this tour above others I have taken. I would highly recommend them.
