Very Disappointed!

We booked a walking tour in Istanbul with TemaTour seeing all the great reviews and was really looking forward to it. They cancelled it a day before the tour without providing any valid reason and without giving us enough time to plan for something else.

Was a great and informative tour! We learned a lot and it prepared us well for the rest of our holiday in Istanbul and helped us decide what tourist attractions to visit for more details and what to skip. The guide also gave us suggestions on local cuisine and was very open to answer any other questions we had.

Nice tour, we could see the main places and got some informations, especially because we were in a small group. But sometimes we needed to walk fast to follow the guide hahaha
