    Istanbul Bosphorus tour with the best travel company in Turkey. I loved every second of my tour to Bosphorus and Spice Bazaar with the ToursCE travel team. Ahmet, Ayla, and Mehmet were amazingly kind and helpful. They took genuine care of everybody on the trip and they made our day trip really fun and beautiful. my deepest thanks to all of the team and to the travel for hiring such knowledgeable and cooperative staff. I recommend this tour agency for everyone if all the staff are like Ahmet, Ayla, Coskun, and Mehmet. We were very much pleased and I have never enjoyed any of my tours as much as we enjoyed my daily Istanbul tour with them.

    I travel to Turkey last month with my friend and I wonder the Bosphorus in Istanbul. We joined the Bosphorus Cruise and They picked up us from our hotel and first visit Spice Bazaar. They gave us us free time for shopping. Reallay there was very interesting things in Spica Bazaar. Only I bought apple tea because I like so much apple tea and I am from Korea, Apple tea is very famous in Korea. Apple Tea is Turkish tea for korean people. After the spice bazaar we drive to Kabatas for Bosphorus Crusise and start the charming bosphorus cruise. We get in the boat and first see Europe Side. I take many pictures. Also our guide explained palaces, villas, everything. Boat turn back to Kabatas. At the end of the tour they dropped us the hotel almost 12:45 – 13:00.. Thank you for this organization.
