It was great. But extremely disappointed at the food lunch offered. I would rather select a restaurant my delft. The fact that served boiling hot beer and beverages as really bad. Enjoyed my trip was worth the money. Except the food. Better if you offer free Turkish coffee and not that meal in that particular awful restaurant

It was very good! Yousef picked us up from the hotel and then did a very detailed tour of the old town, marina and Duden waterfalls. We also had a meal included in the activity (drinks have to be paid by yourself) but the meal is paid for. I highly recommend booking with him! Very friendly and a good tour guide.

Worth every penny, amazing scenery and a very knowledgeable guide, if I had one criticism it would be the lunch, no choice and had to wait to be served but the food was nice once we received it.

Great tour, well arranged and the people are very friendly. A warm encounter, you’ll see nice views and the inner parts of the city. All guided without worrying about transport and the bustle.

It was a wonderful experience with the folks of GYG team members.
