Sightseeing tour was very interesting although we wish we were given more free time to explore the area. The dinner show was good although I didn't find it too amusing to get picked by the performers every single time and had to perform in the stage to entertain others. I think I know why we got the best seats in the house.

The guide was awesome! This is by far the best trip we've had. He knows everything about Istanbul and was happy to impart it on us. The Turkish dinner and show was nothing to shout about. In fact, the shows were a bit disappointing. The belly dancing was not as mesmerizing as I thought it would be.

This tour was 80 walking and whilst I did not have a problem with this, I was unaware as were the others on the tour. Six of those patrons were quite elderly and struggled walking so far and in the heat. The rest of us then had to continually keep waiting for them to catch up and meant standing in the heat and sun waiting. One of the venues that was not listed was a carpet making demonstration, and after the demo we all felt quite pressured to buy rugs and it was quite uncomfortable. The dinner show was good however as I was travelling alone I booked a tour expecting to mingle with other travellers in a group. On arrival I was taking to a pokey table to sit and eat on my own whilst I watched the show. I could have gone on my own in a taxi cheaper for this experience. Felt very uncomfortable sitting alone with everyone else in groups. Over all disappointing tour however all of the key tour stops were historically amazing. Shame about the conditions.
