    Dolmabahce Palace Museum is a must-see in Istanbul! I was very lucky to join a guided tour, he gave me a very detailed lesson about the history of the Dolmabahce Palace and other sights of Istanbul. If you visit Istanbul without a guide, you will lose all the beauty of the mystic city. Also on the Bosphorus sightseeing cruise trip, the tour guide told us about Istanbul’s history before and now. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, told not only with great passion but also very detailed, not least with great joy and sense of humor. This was my first guided tour in Turkey and liked it. Had a wonderful day in Istanbul and highly recommend this daily tour and guide.

    We went on this tour with one of our friends’ recommendation. Every step of the tour program was arranged very well. The tour guide was excellent and knowledgeable about each site of the places. My wife and I are delighted.
