The tour guide was an excellent person and the information given was really excellent and a lot of knowledge. He even joked and played with my daughter and a little son. We visited Pierre Loti, Abu Ayyup Al Ansari Tomb and Eyup district, and Bosphorus. Highly recommend.

It was my second visit to Istanbul and but first time for my family. The tour was special because of visiting Sahaba, Pirre Loti, and the Bosphorus cruise between continents. They loved the trip and Istanbul. was a short trip to Istanbul but we will come back again at the first chance. Thank you, guys.
This was the most interesting vacation in Turkey and an enjoyable time for our family. We learned so much and realised there was so much Islamic history in Istanbul. It was very good to be part of the participants of the holy tour including Islamic history and boat sightseeing cruise. The visits to the Sahabe Ayyup Al Ansari tombs and the explanation how of he came to be buried there were so well explained. Visiting the sight in the program was very nice. It was the best trip we have had to Turkey. I have already recommended this trip to others.
