A must do tour in Istanbul for first timers! We went as a couple to celebrate our 15th anniversary to Istanbul. We took the free 2.5 hour in Old city (round trip to SultanAhmet square) walking tour with the guide named “Pinar”. She was the best guide you can ask for in every dimension - professional, yet fun, and very knowledgeable. Actually she studied tourism in college to become a professional tour guide. She spoke very good English, and gave good personalized tips to each set of visitors based on their needs. For example, tips to visit busy places, local shopping, hidden gems, transportation pass etc. We also took the paid Bosphorous tour with her following the free tour at the end of which we got off at Uskudar with her on the Asia side - we made a great decision. Overall I’d recommend this free tour on the first day (or second, depending on your arrival time) in Istanbul.

The tour was far too long and exhausting - walking under the sun for hours was tough, and I struggled to understand her accent. The group was too big and I suffered from information overload. Other than that it was fun. She was enthusiastic and knowledgable.
