Our Bosphorus cruise and visit to the Dolmabahca Palace was the second trip we took with Tours by Locals guide Atakan and built richly on the previous day's tour. What a fantastic way to experience Istanbul - on land and water - it gave a three dimensional experience of this fantastic city. We couldn't quite believe the history and beauty of the place and the warmth and vitality of its people. Both tours definitely enhanced a lively appreciation of the historic and contemporary Istanbul.
