Great Way To Explore The City!

This was such a great way of getting to know the city. We saw where all of the main attractions we wanted to visit were located, and that helped us a lot for our upcoming days in Istanbul. I recommend booking the hop-on-hop-off tour for your first day there. It’s a great experience!


Would Recommend it!

The staff was absolutely delightful, and going on a hop-on hop-off bus tour in Istanbul was easily one of the highlights of my trip. One of the stops I made was at Taksim, where I spent 30 minutes walking around the area and visiting Galata Tower. Later, after the tour ended, I even went on a walking tour of the Blue Mosque. This tour was a fantastic way to explore Istanbul at my own pace and see all the major sights.


Amazing Bus Tour!

A really great experience. The audio guide was perfectly synchronized with the bus route, and it was filled with interesting facts and stories about the monuments you see on tour. They also provide commentary for places you see along the way, not only the main stops. I especially enjoyed Dolmabahce Palace, and it’s a must-see. A great value tour that I would recommend to anyone visiting Istanbul.
