    The tour itself was great. The itinerary wonderful and our guide was the best. The administration side of G Adventures is terrible. We prepaid for a Balloon ride and a backstreets of Istanbul walk, along with the Bosphorus River Cruise. Our vouchers... Show more

    It was a great trip, Isik is a very knowledgeable leader. I always felt safe and could rely on his help to assist with any inquires or request. Our driver Oman is an excellent driver, very polite and helpful.

    The tour was well organised and enjoyable. The company was great - we all got on well. Ischik went out of his way to accommodate me (I have MS)

    Isik was fantastic but there were a couple of people allowed on the tour that should not have been there; forced to use canes and a wheelchair.

    Thanks for the review Denis. Isik is the best, we agree.

    Turkey can take you by surprise. It wasnt until I got back that I began to take in what I had experienced. The tour was good but the cramped conditions of the van were undesirable. We had a great group of people on this tour which made the experience... Show more

    Overall the tour was good, downside we were 15 rather large people from all different countries crammed into a 15 seater bus so travelling long distances was not fun especially when a lot of people claiming they got car sick so when they didn't rotate... Show more

FAQs

    • Where and when does the tour end?

      The tour ends in Istanbul, on Day 15 of the itinerary. There are no planned activities for this day so you're free to leave at any time, however we recommend extending your stay as there is so much to see! Why not pre-book the Dolmabahçe Palace Visit and Bosporus Cruise or Istanbul Backstreets Walk.

    • Where and when does the tour start?

      Day 1 of this tour is an arrivals day, so you can arrive in Istanbul at any time, and spend the day settling into your accommodation and exploring the city. In the evening you will be greeted by your trip CEO at a welcome meeting, so you can get acquainted with your fellow travellers and go over the final trip details before the adventure commences! Please be aware that the meeting point is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Airport transfers are not included in the price of this tour, however you can pay for an arrival transfer in advance. In this case your driver will be holding a sign saying 'M55', and will be responsible for transferring you to your first accommodation.

    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Of course, we can! Once you have a confirmed booking on this tour, we can request additional accommodation for you with the tour operator.
