    Before we went to Los Angeles, we arranged a short stay in Istanbul and we took the flight from Istanbul for our Los Angeles. We arranged our stay and tour with the Toursce. Everything was smooth from beginning to end. ​Pick-ups were on time and the hotel was great. By the way, we stayed at Sura Hagia Sophia Hotel, which has very good service and location. It was in the center, so close to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia Mosque, Topkapi Palace, and we prayed our Jumu’ah in Blue Mosque. We had a very good knowledgeable tour guide Ugur for history and Islam. Thanks to Toursce office team and Ugur.

    Amazing worth, I strongly recommend Toursce Turkey for your vacation in Turkey value. We felt the incomparable Turkish hospitality from the moment the friendly and professional Toursce Turkey staff greet us at the airport with a smile. Even if it was five in the morning they arranged especially for us an early smooth check-in so we did not have to wait at all. Later on, we had a delectable Bosphorus Cruise and Istanbul city tour with Mr. Tuna, a professional local tour consultant who arrange everything on time in our tailor-made program and did his best to show us around even more than we had in the itinerary. Superb service we have got for our stopover in Istanbul. In our next visit, we want to see the living spaces of the local people, not the tourist sights. Can we visit the local street markets and visit one of the local’s houses in Istanbul? I like to see their normal family life with their children. Are 5 days enough in Istanbul? Thank you very much for all.

    Emel from Toursce organized the perfect tours of Istanbul for our party of 9. We wanted for a combination of fun and educational tours, and she assigned Ms. Gul (Rose) to be our tour guide and Ahmet to be our driver. We have learned a lot on the tours and laughed so much. We are still quoting Gul’s jokes back home. we had been talking to a couple of other travel companies before deciding to book the tours in Turkey. I felt like they would say yes to anything that I asked without really thinking about. The hotel location, traffic, visiting sights, the time frame of the tours. I thought they just like to book the tour. But Emel made a great holiday program for our group. guided tours included just the right amount of sights and information to keep us all our interest in Istanbul. I highly recommend Emel and for a private customized tour of Istanbul. Emel is meticulous about the details and she has such great her job. Thank you very much for Emel and your team at

    It was special. Many people has insufficient information about Bosphorus. Theres much more than you see from centrum or on tv. Goes up till the black see and every centimeter has unique points to to discover. Thats why i choose this tour. And ofcourse lunch on boat was a plus. If you are looking for a Bosphorus cruise this is your tour.

  5. Cia Ju

    I joined the cruise in my travel to Turkey. There were many option for Bosphorus Cruise but I decided Bosphorus Cruise & Black Sea. Because I saw all bosphorus in this tour also also included lunch. There was open buffet with rich menu on the boat. Boat stop Anadolu Kavagı and There was a small fish town there. I visited there almost 1 hour. Boat waited us and then we come to istanbul same route. They dropped to hotel us. I spend enjoy time really. Thank you very much for everything.
