    ONDER (guide) arrived in good time to meet me. I was the only one on this tour, which meant that I had a private tour. This tour was excellent, both in terms of content and because of Onder - he was highly knowledgeable, generous with his time, highly considerate, and enthusiastic in a low-key way. He showed me everything there was to see, and more, and went out of his way to make this a highly memorable experience in a variety of ways. Nothing was too much trouble for him, and it felt as though I was with a friend. I was particularly delighted about two things: (1) that we were able to enter the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate, and (2) that we had an iconic dish (balik ekmek) that was on my personal wish list, but I had the pleasure of having it with Onder. Excellent tour, excellent compassionate, knowledgeable guide. Special.

What people are saying about Walls of Constantinople

All was very good! They picked us up at the indicated time, the very friendly driver, they had a guide in Spanish and English, it was super good because at the time of booking, I forgot to change the English language to Spanish, ask the guide if I could change to Spanish and he said yes. I liked Troy, more than anything, its history. It is small but very interesting.

The team made sure we were picked up and dropped off on time both days, and had someone escort us from the hotel to the meeting point on day 2. As a solo traveller, this was really helpful. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and passionate about both Troy and Gallipoli. I highly recommend this tour!

the guide was very dedicated and knew a lot about the history. the only minus point is the booking. if you want to book the tour via the computer, you must enter his or her passport number for each person separately. Often you don't have one.

Very interesting excursion, we visited places that we would't discover by ourselves. Highly recommended to everybody, who want to see something more than Hagia Sophia na Istanbul old city.

Very nicely organized, timely, interesting, guides and the driver really took care of us during the tour.
