“Not the guide but the tour company, terrible!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Arrived in Instanbul on Tuesday and during transfer from the airport to hotel, a local travel agency representative gave us our written itinerary for the next several days. We were scheduled for a full day tour of the Old City on Wednesday, with a 9:00am pick up time at our hotel. We were having breakfast about 8:20 am and an individual from She Tour came to the dining room to inform us we were late; actually, we had 40 minutes before pick up based on our written information! She hurried us along, obviously unhappy about "our mistake". We boarded the bus and while we do not understand the Turkish language, the bus driver's body language and loud tone looked and sounded like anger; it was a very unpleasant bus ride driving around town for the next 30 minutes pi cking up other passengers! Luckily, we changed buses at their designated location, encountering a much better situation. Our tour guide was knowledgable, friendly and her English was good; the rest of the day was fine but it certainly had a very bad beginning!! And according to my pedometer application, we walked in excess of 12,000 steps!!!

“The description in the brochure is what you actually get”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

We took the Bosphorus and Golden Horn tour. The tour itself was great and comprehensive and as described in the brochure. The staff picked us up on time and provided sufficient information. The price was a bit expensive, if you have plenty of time I suggest you explore Istanbul yourself as the locals are very nice and friendly. If you have limited time though, this tour offer an easy solution to see the beauty of Istanbul

“She Tours Excellent..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

Recommended by a local we are very glad we used She Tours. From booking our one day trip to Ephesus from London (that included an internal flight) I found this company fantastic to work with. From providing information and payment to pick up, tour guide and drop off. Our She Tours guide was tentative, knowledgeable, fun and accommodating to our needs. They were on time, organised and used comfortable vehicles and comfort stops.

“Better off using Public Transport to Princess Islands”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

We had booked for a day tour. We were picked up at 8:30 and when we got into the ferry at Kabatas it was 10:00 am (takes 15 min by Tram to reach - 3TL) - we waited forever in the bus for changing, switching buses, rearranging etc. We were put on the public transport (ferry @ 5TL) and were taken around the island in a horse carriage (70 TL).

Then Lunch - oh the lunch!! That was what really ticked us off. We were in the middle of the head quarters of the exotic Turkish cuisine that we love - and these morons (Milano restaurant) were serving cardboard in the name of lunch!!

And the journey back - we landed at Kabatas at 5:00 pm and after endless shifting buses and rearranging, we just gave up and got off near Camberlitas and walked our way back at 6:15.

Don't bother with these guys - just take the Public Transport and have a great time in Princess Islands... Enjoy the food there (Oh God not in Milano) and don't forget to have the local ice-cream (Dondurma)
