It was more than perfect Trip! And there is someone calls Mustafa works there he is very friendly, helpful and makes sure that everyone having fun. He even borrowed us some cash, as we left our cash in the hotel. The pickup took a bit longer, but it is totally acceptable for istanbul, quicker couldn't be. A BIG Thank You !!!

We really liked the excursion and the activities. Everything was great . The only negative is the time that is lost in picking up people and the bazaars that take you in the middle of the excursion to do business. It does not seem right .
