Wir haben einen Reiseleiter bevorzugt,weil wir detailiert wissen wollten was wann und von wem gebaut wurde.Hat sich auch gelohnt.Natürlich kann man auch alles selber machen,aber unmöglich an einem Tag.Da ist alles gut organisiert und man wird gut geführt.Das Essen war auch überraschend gut.War ein schöner Tag.

Nous avons visiter Istanbul avec ma famille. J'ai fait ce tour avec ma famille. La ville est incroyablement grande. Mais avec le guide qui parler francais etait plus simple pour visiter. Il m'a expliqué tous les choses. Avec l'otobus et aussi avec le bateau c'etait agreable unique! Service superbe avec dejeuner tres bien! Nous avons été chercher à l'hôtel et ramenés. Merci beaucoup pour tous!

Viel besser mit Reiseleitung....Ist ganz tages Tur wo alles so zu sagen mit drin ist. Nur die Bootsfahrt zwischen den Kontinenten Asien und Europa haben wir zusaetzlich separat gemacht. Wir empfehlen diese Tur für alle die nach İstanbul gehen. Da ist am meisten zu sehen. Die Isitklal Strasse ist auch sehr empfehlenswert,vor allem für jüngere Leute,speziell das viertel Beyoglu.....
