We enjoyed this layover tour with Ali. He was a great guide. Very knowledgeable. He could answer all the questions we asked. He took photos of us, too. His English was very easy to listen to, too, (even to us, Japanese). Ali contacted us by email just after booking. We also communicated using WhatsApp so I felt quite assured when arrived in Istanbul. We visited many key locations in the old town. Ali helped us skip lines, too. Our time was limited but we were able to make the most of it. A small tip for future travelers. You might want to check how much you would need in cash. The only thing that I might have missed was that I would need to pay the admission fees in USD, Euro or Sterling pond. Ali temporarily paid for admission fees for us, and then in the end, we reimbursed the amount. I knew that we would need to pay admission fees ourselves, but assumed in Turkish currency. If I had known that I could pay in..say euro, I would not exchanged euro with rather unreliable Turkish lira. The car was very large. Too large for only two of us. I had no other choice, but probably this tour is better suited for a group or a large family.
