What people are saying about Marmara Region

An amazing event with very talented artists. A suggestion: request a good table. Tolga made sure I got a very good view of it all. Other than the fact that I felt a bit unsafe since COVID is back again and there was absolutely no masking and social distancing, the actual evening was a lot of fun! A definite recommendation to all Istanbul first-time visitors. Should not miss this one!

The Bosporus cruise was great and very educational. The boat was clean and the pick up was very organized. The speaker guide explained all the places in detail, which I appreciate as a non-local, so it was great and it made me feel like the crew put a lot of emphasis on safety.

Volkan was a fantastic guide! Day 10 in Turkey, been to Capaddocia, Bursa and Uludag as well but he was the best. Experienced, knowledgeable and thoughtful, will highly recommend any trip with him!

I really liked the attention of the staff, the kindness, the show and the night views of the Bosphorus !!! It was a good experience!

Worth the money, everything deserves 5 stars, specially the driver and the food was amazing too.
